    Don what is the talk about Labron James son, Bronny, signing with the Buckeyes. He's a senior this year so while he didn't sign with anybody in the "early" signing period when most basketball players make their commitment

    He's in the 2023 class so at some point he's going to have to decide between Ohio State, Duke, Kansas and of course some west coast schools.

    Purely rumors Terry, at least in my opinion. Coach Holtmann has some reservations about how the recruits fit into his program and Bronny probably is not a good fit.o_O

    Alabama just beat Kentucky soundly. Defense looks pretty damned good.

    Is it just me or has Kentucky underperformed in recent years in spite of having a boat load of talent?

    Yeah but I’ll take a win over Kentucky just because of their history

    Buckeyes loose to Minnesota last night here at home 70-67 who just happens to be in last place in the Big Ten Conference. What turns out to be a good start, has simply turned out to be a disaster. I seriously doubt Coach Holtmann can turn things around.:(

    Illini defeat Michigan State 75-66 in Champaign this evening. Excellent game to watch and well played by both teams.

    Lady Buckeyes win at Nebraska this afternoon and now stand 18-0 for this season. Maybe they can give the men some pointers?o_O

    Really a great year for them Don, I do think McGuff is an excellent coach. He was a terrific member of Muffett McGraws staff before he left to be the HC at Xavier where he proved he was ready for the big time.

    Another loss for the Buckeyes vs Rutgers in OT this afternoon. (68-64) We have lost about four games right at the end.

    Right now to me at least the suprise team of the year is Xavier. Sean Miller showing he hasn't forgotten how to coach. They are leading the Big East with a 7-0 record and have moved up to #12.

    I am afraid Coach Holtmann has lost control of this team, five straight losses and things just keep going downhill, Congrats AJ:(

    As an ND fan that sounds very familiar.

    Lot's of basketball on the telly today! Probably the biggest game might be the Aggies who are 5-0 visiting Kentucky who has been struggling this season. Win by the Aggies would be very big for them and the program.

    Mike Brey coaches his first game as a retiring coach when Boston College comes to South Bend today. They are having a similar season to ND and have 1 more conference win than the Irish.
