NCAA CCoach Changes

 Today in charlottesville there was a buzz going around. Everyone was exited about Tony Bennet becoming the new Virginia mens basketball coach. Everyone now cant wait untill next year in which then they can see how Bennet will do coaching a team that isnt probablly much worse than his former team at Washington St..

 Meanwhile at the campus of the Uneversity of Kentucky, Memphis coach Jon Calpari was disscousing a deal to become the Wildcats coach. It hasnt become official, but it probablly means that the Tigers will be looking for a new coach soon.

 But how bad of a hit will this be for the Tigers? Well, I think we won't be seeing the team fall immediatley. But in about three years, they will be just another mid-major team in Conference USA. See, the recruits that were brang by Calpari will be here for a while. But when there gone, Memphis must have a good recruiting coach to get good players to a mid-major team in a one bid conference. The Tigers might stay at top in the conference, but that winning streak will die out.

Hoyas Regain Life With Win

The Hoyas, like always had a second half lead. But for once, they kept it.

56-54, final. The Hoyas beat the Villanova Wildcats in Philly. With the win the Hoyas regain some hope. If they win out and win 3 games in the Big East tournement that will give them a chance to get in as the last team. But there are other teams looking to get in also. Do they deserve it more. Lets take a look at there resumes.

Georgetown:15-12

They have solid wins against Memphis,Connecticut,Syracuse and Villanova but struggled to a 7-11 against RPI top 100 teams. They have pretty much run out of regular season chances only having DePaul and St.Johns left to play. 

Kentucky:19-10

 Kentucky is slowlly taking them selves out. At first it looked like they had a shot, but now are losing to unquallity teams. Yes, Jodie Meeks could be the next Stephen Curry come tourny time, but they will have to make it first then. There remaining schedule shows Georgia and Florida. Florida is a decent team, but Georgia isnt at all.

Notre Dame:16-12

The best the Irish will do in the Big East will be 8-10. And that will only happen if they are able to beat Villanova. Including a 72nd rated RPI and they are not in good shape. Also, one of there quallity wins isnt a qualllity win anymore, Georgetown. Now they have one chance to show the commitie what there made of. Villanova.

Penn St. 20-9

At first we thought the Lions wouldnt stand a chance in making it. But they have played them selves in and deserve an at-large bid if they win out. Out of the teams on the list, I think there in the best shape. But they still have one challenge, Illinois. But lukilly for them, the beat the Illini 38-33.

Virginia Tech: 17-11

Looking at there record you would say Tech is in good shape. But they are going through the hardest part of there schedule. They beat Clemson, lose to Duke, but still have North Carolina and Florida St. to go. They do have quallity wins though, Wake Forest,Clemson and they would have beat Xavier if it wernt for a half-court buzzer beater.
