    I watched some of the OSU-Xavier game. At this early stage of the season, Xavier looks like the real deal. A long way to go.

    The rebuilt Aggie squad has coasted through an easy early sched, but life gets real on Monday when they face Wisconsin in Las Vegas.
    I don't expect to win, would just like to be competitive.

    Gators have beaten two unranked teams handily, but we also beat a favored and ranked FSU team 81-65. Kind of optimistic about this team.

    Purdue has a lot of talent this year, I won't be surprised if you win.

    Best talent may be our ND connection, Jaden Ivey.

    Our local sports columnist is all in on Purdue and Jaden Ivey, son of ND women's head coach, Niele Ivey.

    The Indianapolis Star

    Next game vs. Villanova, will be another early season test for the Boilermakers.

    Holiday Tournaments are ramping up and there will be some good early season matchups. The weekend saw some top 5 teams lose, to good opponents though... Michigan lost to Arizona and Villanova lost to Purdue.

    Don's Buckeyes get Seton Hall who just upset Michigan a week ago.

    Buckeyes beat Seton Hall 79-76 last night courtesy of a three pointer by Meechie Johnson in the last minute of play.

    Bill, looks like we will face your Gators at 8:30 this evening in the Fort Myers basketball tournament. I see Florida is 4-0 and we are 4-1, should be a good matchup for both teams.o_O

    I didn't realize the Aggies would be facing the Irish in the Maui tournament.
    looks like it starts at 10:30 central.
    The Aggies are a smaller guard/forward team. We have to shoot really well to have a chance.
    Hoping we'll keep it close.

    I don't know how we will match up with the Aggies. But that 10:30 start means I will find out tomorrow! :p

    Ohio State loses to Florida 71-68 as game ends on a three pointer. We led most of the way but too many turnovers. Gators are an excellent and athletic team. Congratulations Bill

    I watched most of the game. Two outstanding teams. I agree with Don that turnovers were the difference.

    Thanks, watched it to the very end. Actually didn't think we could pull it off.

    Turnovers and your player fouling out gave the Gators a chance. The final shot was the only time we led in the second half I believe.
