I feel bad for Indiana; that shouldn't happen to a dog. They didn't play that poorly down the stretch--Iowa just played great.
I feel way worse about his dad wearing IU gear at Williams Arena than I do about him going to Bloomington.Tough when Bohannon starts hitting EVERYTHING.
And I don't feel bad for Indiana at all. TJD is one of those players that I simply don't like. Don't care for Race Thompson spurning the Gophers either.
InI'm sure it was mentioned and I missed it, but Pitino and Iona lost a tough one yesterday to Rider, who went on to lose today to Monmouth. I kind of wish these lower tier conf top teams would take care of business in their conf tourney. I suppose those teams would likely lose anyway in first round of bigger tourney, but for the auto bid situations, I'd rather we see the team who was best during the full season.
For the major conferences, I actually think it's no harm for top teams to bow out early in their conf tourney. They go home, practice and gear up for what matters. B1G for instance, doesn't wrap up until Selection Sunday.
I think the conf tourneys are more of a chance to see teams we don't normally watch. That part is great.
Dang. Indiana and Iowa is another great game. Bohannon with the long range bank in prayer as the final seconds tick off. Wow.
