Wednesday/Thursday Highlights – 11/15/17 & 11/16/17

Good couple of nights of hoops.  Creighton took down Northwestern on the road Wednesday, while Seton Hall and UNC protected their home courts.  Then we had a whole slew of surprising results Thursday, like Missouri getting smacked around by Utah and Illinois State beating South Carolina.

Most importantly though, we got some good highlights to review.  Starting out in Vegas, a vicious lob and finish from the Rebs as they have their way with Prairie View.

 

Xavier and Wisconsin played a great one tonight, had a sweet sixteen matchup feel to it.  Really impressive win by the X-men in a building where not many teams win other than the Badgers.  This was probably my favorite play of the night, if it’s any consolation to Wisconsin fans.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are fun when they get out on the break this year.

I saw two guys throw oops off the backboard tonight, but the Johnnies did it best.

 

 

Lastly, a high flying put back from Eastern Michigan in their win over Arkansas State.

 

 

 

 

Tuesday Highlights – 11/14/17

Champions Classic is living up to the hype through a game and a half.  He’s not going to win many popularity contests, but Grayson Allen may wind up being the key to Duke’s national title hopes after all.  Even without Bagley for most of the night they still looked damn impressive against a very good Spartan squad.  I don’t know how you’re supposed to guard them if the outside shots are falling.  Seems like maybe you just can’t.

 

Anyways, on to the few highlights we found tonight.  Starting with our first Villanova sighting of the year.

 

And we’ll keep it in the tri-state area with a Rutgers.. yes, RUTGERS highlight.  Corey Sanders is one of the most underrated players in the country, you should absolutely check him out if you get the chance this season.  Beautiful pass and finish here.

 

Meanwhile, at the late game in Chicago, Hamidou Diallo with the steal and the aggressive slam.  He’s going to dunk about 200 times this year I think, and I might post every single one of them here.

 

Some good ones tomorrow…

Mini Big East vs B10 challenge with Creighton @ Northwestern & Butler @ Maryland.  Also have Bucknell @ UNC, and I’m curious to see how Indiana fares at Seton Hall after the start both those teams have had.
