good question... maybe the '96 kentucky team, or possibly even the 2000 michigan state team

we haven't had repeat champion since the 91-92 duke teams.

Temple rips sixth-ranked George Washington. John Chaney has some tricks up his old sleeve. Atlantic-10 to get two bids.

Cuse gets a bid now and A-10 gets two - that takes away 2 bubble spots. I'm feeling that overrated Missouri Valley conf. is gonna get 3 bids, not the 5 some ites are talking about. Some bubble teams just got bounced....sucks for those smaller schools.

Gerry McNamara has been rather clutch at MSG so far.

Not that I thought that UConn would win the Big East tournament anyway with Villanova there, but I never would have guessed that they'd lose this early.

the fact that GW is ranked 6th in the nation is a joke. their strength of schedule was in the 200s... 200s!!!

their's only like 230 D1 teams, and GW's strength of schedule was ranked somewhere in the 220s. they might as well be playing high school teams at that point.

the big 10 tournament could be very interesting

Iowa was 17-0 at home, then sub-par everywhere else, so expect them to lose soon in the neutral stadium

Ohio State had a great strategy, and surprised everyone (except me) and won the big 10. After they beat Illinois last year, I expected them to be good, but they were nothing special away from home, so they don't have a decided advantage

Michigan state is too unpredictable to talk about

Illinois has showed flashed of brilliance, but I think they ride on Dee Brown to have a good offensive night

My pick is for Ohio State to beat Illinois in the final (I root heavily for Illinois, so I don't have any bias in that pick)

i think the big 10 might be my least favorite conference... not that that means anything, but you just made me think of it.

ok exact numbers on GW's strength of schedule...

they're ranked 241st out of 334.

the basketball powerhouses with similar strength of schedules as GW include san diego, denver, harvard, cornell, st. bonaventure, northern arizona, quinnipiac, sacred heart, southern & mcneese state.

in comparison, here's the strength of schedule rankings for the entire AP top 10
1. UConn - #51
2. Villanova - #2
3. Duke - #1
4. Gonzaga - #100
5. Memphis - #4
6. GW - #241
7. Ohio State - #5
8. Texas - #7
9. Illinois - #8
10. UNC - #9
