Didn't see the Michigan - North Florida game since I was at Maryland and it wasn't televised, anyway, but from what I can tell from coverage from UMHoops, it appears that the defense is concerning, particularly against 3s, but the offense emerged late, while the team also dominated in terms of turnovers and to a lesser extent, defensive rebounding. Apparently, Teske even scored a 3, so I'll be watching out for that.

Central Michigan is on Monday, which will be on the BTN. The Chippewas are probably still a mid-level MAC team, but we'll see.
A lot worse without Marcus Keene, who led D1 in scoring at over 30 ppg last year, and the inexplicably went pro, even though everyone knew he wasn't an NBA player.  Went undrafted, now playing in Europe

Illini blow a 16 point lead to Tennessee Martin and squeak out a win.

Not that the scores mean anything given the competition, but at least Purdue hasn't shown signs of struggling in the early tune-up games, putting up over 100 points both times. 

First real test is tomorrow, @Marquette.

UW is 2-0 and has looked pretty good getting there. Not sure if S Carolina St is any good but Yale is supposed to be pretty decent. 

Up next is Xavier, followed by Baylor. We will learn a little more about the young Badgers over the course of the next week.

The Badgers are very young - no seniors on the roster this season.

The starters (for now) are Iverson (jr), Trice (so), Van Vilet (jr), Happ (jr) and Pritzl (so), with a bunch of really young kids behind them.

Watched the game tonight. The team is a work in progress, overall. The offense looked particularly disappointing, especially with so many missed open looks (10-34 from 3) and not trying to drive it even after CMU was in the bonus. Meanwhile, CMU had several lucky shots go in early to give them a lead for much of the first half. Much like how it sounded like the UNF game went, Michigan played better in the second half, particularly defensively.

Simpson looks better than expected at PG, but I was definitely expecting more from Simmons, considering he was 1st team all MAC last year. Apparently Eli Brooks is the third guy, now, at PG. The only other notable lineup issue was that Teske got all the backup center minutes and looked serviceable. I still haven't seen Austin Davis play meaningful minutes so I can't comment on him.

Central Michigan also looked decent in their own right..... Probably not a MAC contender but not a bottom-feeder, either.

Southern Mississippi is next, possibly the worst CUSA team, but we'll see. It's not televised so I won't be able to see it, though. Then the team goes to Maui....

Is the ACC pissed at Maryland that they never give us Maryland-Duke in the Challenge.  The hate there is real.

IU simply isn't good.  They didn't Dance last year and lost their 3 best players.

ISU was incredibly hot from 3, they are expected to finish in the Valley cellar.

As for 2 Big Ten teams I have thoroughly watched.  Don't hand over the crown to MSU just yet.  Purdue and Minn both look really good.  This 7'3" lanky dude we got from the Netherlands Matt Haarms has been such a nice surprise.  Great foot work and very soft touch by the basket with a sweet lefty.

And as has slowly moved from hypothesis to theory to scientific law, Wisc will finish 4th or higher.

No, that would be coach rat face.

You don't "know" as much as you think you "know", but everyone who watched that game knows this.... 

Players from both teams were slapping the floor.

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery I guess.

I guess I've just always been "anti-douche bag", so if that's hate, so be it.

Many ACC programs are still angry about the departure and won't have anything to do with Maryland.  Not sure how long that will last.  North Carolina seems to be the least resistant.  The two schools play each other in several sports now.  That's partly because they are both pretty good at a lot of the same non-revenue sports.  I think Virginia will be the next to mellow out.  Both fan bases want that, I think.  

MCWTERP is exactly right about Coach Krzyzewski.  I'm sure he'd deny it, as would Duke fans (of courrse, "not our rival"), but he seemed hurt and angry on a personal level from day 1 after Maryland left, and still is.

So no, not really...
