    For some crazy ass reason, the ACC is starting the season with conference games, so 5 Louisville kicks off their season on the road @Miami.

    My spicy takes

    Duke finishes outside top 4 in ACC
    Michigan misses the NCAA tournament
    A team outside the current top 5 will win the title

    I'm just glad LSU has a watchable team again. Hopefully the FBI leaves slick Willy Wade alone

    James Wiseman of Memphis was ruled ineligible earlier today for the whole season.

    However, a temporary restraining order of the ruling has been issued and he is eligible to and will play tonight

    This is wild lol. Penny apparently helped the kid move before Penny became the head coach. But I think it was a poorly kept secret he was going to be the coach. So that's why they called penny a booster. This is some weird shit.

    It's apparently a little deeper then that. Hardaway donated 1 mil to the school back in '08, which makes him "a booster in perpetuity."

    A judge granted Wiseman an injunction so he's still playing tonight.

    So, if I'm reading this right, Penny gave him money to play high school ball. To move to Memphis. Penny was a HS coach, tubby coached Memphis, the thought of Penny coaching Memphis was a long shot. It was a violation of HS ball and ultimstely hashed out in the courts. NCAA knew about this. They have since at least May and the NCAA cleared him to play. Now, they're coming back and saying that since Penny donated to Memphis 11 years ago, he was a booster last year. NCAA just decided this. It's a terrible argument by the NCAA, fuck them. I hope Memphis just gives them the middle finger and reams them in court.

    There is some optimism he'll be back this year though, but his team felt it best to "accept" the ruling for now so they can fight it

    LSU is playing UMBC (4-0) who have a 5 foot 2 guy on the team. He's good too, averages 16 a game on 47% shooting

    They just said shortest player in 20 years

    And Duke goes down as #1 team to a purple mid-major on their home court. Louisville poised to take the #1 spot if they beat in-state opponent Western Kentucky (in a game played in Tennessee).
