Since wvu got knocked off in the first round last year, I think they will be focused. We will have to bring out best effort.

According to a matchup predictor on cbssports, the score will be 83-67 with WVU given an 88% chance of winning.

Btw, this is kenpoms # 5 team. Not the dream matchup. Hopefully they get a little complacent.

13? Means a close game. WVU a very good team-no disrespect here.

Huggins is a loathesome individual in my mind. I won't go into th details we probably all know however he represents the height, of the antithesis, that is college basketball.

Were not his teams famous for their 0% graduation rates? Now that's a hell of a guy.

And WVU is a great national university so this is not a poke At WVU or their alumni.

CBI apparently has been turned down by dozens I'd schools - likely by Boston, Navy, and Lehigh (surprisingly). Loyola has a losing record and was the PL's #7 seed. What a great tournament!

Watched the Huggins press conference...he's a gem of a guy. Surely he know basketball but that's all I can say. Scary that he says his team needs to get back to being the aggressor. I hope Coach Davis and his guys have some tricked up their sleeves to handle the pressure. We've been doing a better job taking care of the ball of late so I hope some of the turnover troubles do not come to the fore. Guys need to plan for a quicker and more physical game than what they've seen so far.

The CBI 16-team field inclues five teams with losing records in mediocre conferences:

Coastal Carolina (200 Pomeroy ranking)
Hampton 306
Illinois Chicago 245
Utah Valley 190
Loyola 251

Also included are:

MO- Kansas City 223
Eastern Washington 188
Green Bay 185
Stony Brook 212

No teams with Pomeroy rankings better than 100.

GMU has to be the favorite. I wonder how they will draw for this fraud of a tournament. I think it's time for the NCAA to eliminate tournaments whose sole goal is to allow teams to buy publicity and a couple of extra weeks of practice.

I just completed my bracket, and unfortunately, I do not have the Bison going all the way. I went with my heart and have the Bison winning the first round. Even though I want Nova to win it all again, I picked Gonzaga.

Bison 137 I believe there is no value, other than extra legal team practices, to playing in CBI if you are paying..

NOW, THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!!

BTW, I just printed the academic bracket and put it on my coworker's desk who graduated from Duke. She immediately blamed it on One-And-Dones.

Vade Universitas Bucknellensis!
