1 - Why the heck is their no college basketball the next three days? Is someone trying to punish me?
2 - Butler has officially moved into the legit category (which Bulldog fans have been telling me all season) after knocking off Xavier last night. There was a Matt Howard sigting too, as the big man had 19 points and 14 boards.
Editor's Early Preview (12/15):
BYU has played one of the most embarrasingly easy schedules you'll ever see, so its hard to know what to make of this undefeated squad. A bad showing by the Cougars would be enough to undermine their previous 10 wins. ASU, led by future Top 5 pick James Harden, is trying to win one for a league that was without a single marquee win until Arizona's big upset the other day. The Sun Devils will struggle in this affair much more than their fans expect.
PHOENIX - The IUPUI Jaguars gave No. 20/18 Arizona State all it could handle, but came up on the short end of a 59-58 overtime decision at the 2008 Desert Classic inside U.S. Airways Arena on Sunday.
