Twice in as many weeks Missouri has provided us with a mid-week game of the night overtime thriller. This time the Tigers were able to get the better of Vanderbilt in a very fun to game to watch. The Commodores missed a good look three-pointer at the end of regulation and had the ball with no shot clock and a tie score in overtime. But the thing they are probably kicking themselves the most about this morning is the fact that they uncharacteristically missed a ton of foul shots that probably swayed the outcome.
See what I told you about Gonzaga. They are not that good. And they are just about at the point where they have to win the West Coast Conference to get into the Big Dance. And that might not be that easy. The Cougars are now 6-1 and have to be considered as one of the favorites in the PAC 10.
And to pat my back again, I told you that San Diego State was for real. The Aztecs won by 20 at Cal last night. At 9-0 now, the Aztecs really don't have much of a test until UNLV comes to town in mid-January. How do you think the selection committee would handle a 27-4 SDSU team with wins over Cal, Gonzaga, St. Mary's and Wichita State? I'm thinking they are looking at wearing the white jerseys the first weekend.
Kentucky wore down Notre Dame and there is one less undefeated team out there. But Notre Dame has been a surprise and played with the 'Cats for a half. But Kentucky allowed only 18 points after the break and that was ultimately the difference. Notre Dame plays Gonzaga Saturday, but could easily enter the Big East part of its schedule at 11-1 if it gets a win there.
