    Seriously the officiating crew in the TT and Texas game should never work a college game again. In the OT Osetowski drove in, clearly walked no call, then he went up, was tied up so he came back down without releasing the ball, no held ball called, no foul called, no walk called, they let them play on. Osetowski was so stunned he missed the shot but it went out of bounds. TT players were dumbfounded.

    TT is going to win in OT

    I only saw highlights of the UA and Utah game so I saw the bad offensive foul call on Trier and then the no call on Akot bumping the kid under the basket. From what I understand that was a terribly officiated game too.

    This one last night was unreal, Texas had a 5 point lead, they didn't help themselves they missed a front end of a 1 and 1 and some others. But this one kid from TT shot 20 FT's and at least half of them were drive in, find a Texas player and jump sideways into him go shoot FT's, lather, rinse repeat.

    Just ruined the game for me.

    Interesting decision today in recruiting PG Tyger Campbell. Down to DePaul, UCLA, Purdue and maryland. Originally verballed to DePaul then decommitted. Was considered a strong Purdue lean, something happened.

    It's allegedly between DePaul and UCLA now and the last 10 picks or so on Crystal Ball are for DePaul but everyone insists they have no idea which way he's going.

    DePaul has his former HS coach(hired a week before Tyger's original verbal) and 5 former HS teammates and 2 former AAU teammates on their current roster. They also lead for a former teammate in the current class.

    Talk about all in half their team will be former teammates if they get him.

    UCLA offered late their selling point is UCLA, location, and Under Armour.

    Wichita State is still the only top-25 team without an RPI Group 1 win.

    They are apparently contacting all sorts of recruits. I read elsewhere some programs are proactively contacting the NCAA to make sure it's clear BBB is contacting the kid not the other way around so it doesn't present any issues.

    Very bad IMO, if you want to create a new league, more power to you, but make that public and let the kids CHOOSE to participate, don't go contacting them and put them in a position where you could in theory get them in trouble with the NCAA.

    Florida's John Egbunu (knee) "hasn't even practiced", per Mike White. Gators host Alabama today in Gainesville.
