Monday Madness: Best & Worst of the College Basketball Weekend

4 Teams Running Suicides On Monday

Butler – In his first four seasons coaching the Bulldogs, Brad Stevens lost five home games. This season he’s already lost two. Louisville was understandable. Not so much with Valparaiso this weekend.

USC – Facing a Minnesota team that had just lost its best player (PF Trevor Mbakwe) to a season-ending injury, the Trojans still got blasted in a 15-point loss to the Golden Gophers, scoring a paltry 40 points while shooting 32 percent from the field and 45 percent from the free-throw line.

UCLA – During the same week when UCLA fired football coach Rick Neuheisel, do you think Ben Howland was trying to stay low-key around the Athletics office while devising a winning game plan for his struggling basketball team? There was nowhere to hide, however, when the Bruins lost to Texas at home to fall to 2-5 on the season.

Clemson – Bad enough that the Tigers lost to rival South Carolina on their home floor, but they also did it after blowing a halftime lead and missing key free throws down the stretch.

    Great post AB.

    Scoop was PISSING me off against Florida. He’s the ultimate love/hate player in the Cuse community. If he can just limit the mistakes he makes, I love Cuse’s chances.

    I was watching Leonard play the other day and definitely see him as a Lottery pick. He’s only going to get better.

    Leonard can play, though his rebounding numbers are low. He’s either gonna be Brook Lopez, or turn himself into a shooter and become Steve Novak.
