[font=Georgia]Sporting News ranks the top 25 college basketball teams for 2012-13[/font]

1. Indiana Hoosiers
2. UCLA Bruins
3. Louisville Cardinals
4. Ohio State Buckeyes
5. Kentucky Wildcats
6. Michigan Wolverines
7. North Carolina State Wolfpack
8. Duke Blue Devils
9. Syracuse Orangemen
10. Arizona Wildcats
11. North Carolina Tar Heels
12. Missouri Tigers

13. Creighton Bluejays
Power forward Doug McDermott was sensational as a sophomore, but Creighton sometimes fought the idea of letting him carry them. He doesn’t need more shots; he needs the ball when it’s time for a big one.

14. Memphis Tigers
15. Kansas Jayhawks
16. Florida Gators
17. Wisconsin Badgers
18. Cincinnati Bearcats
19. San Diego State Aztecs
20. UNLV Runnin' Rebels
21. Gonzaga Bulldogs
22. Michigan State Spartans
23. Murray State Racers
24. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
25. VCU Rams

I will be there.  This is my first time being in the Sokol Arena, I am sure it will be nice, but I still wish the event was held at the CenturyLink Center.  I thought it was neat to be able to walk around the whole place and then go down on the court for autographs after the scrimmage was over.

Media day was crazy today. I think I filmed every player on the team!

Sweet 16 was written on the board as the team goal.

[font=Georgia]Basketball Alums Korver & Tolliver Open NBA Season Friday With Hawks[/font]

GoCreighton wrote:Korver played at Creighton from 1999-2003 and was succeeded by Tolliver, who played for the Jays from 2003-07. If both men play as expected on Friday in the Hawks game vs. Houston, it'll mark the first time two Creighton alums were teammates in an NBA game since March 22, 1970, when Neil Johnson and Paul Silas played for the Phoenix Suns.

Creighton won their exhibition game 89-51.  They were up by as much as 47 pts.  Overall, not a bad game, but the thing that drives me nuts is the fact they can't get the scoreboard figured out yet.  They didn't show any player stats, just ads.  It has been 10 years since the arena opened, you would think that they would know how to operate the scoreboard.

It actually would be pretty awesome and a boost for them if they went to the Atlantic 10.  I swear people were talking about that as a possibility about a year ago.

Not to look past Boise St. tomorrow night, but Saturday vs. St. Joes should be a great game.  As of tonight there are only 32 scattered seats left in the whole arena according to ticketmaster.  The weather is supposed to be nice as well, which should mean the attendance record could be broken.

Creighton drops their first game of the season.  It was a trap game coming off the big Vegas win..

Hope that get it corrected, Saturday is going to be a tougher opponent.

Jays lose first game of the season 70-83.  Jays need to play better defense to have a chance.  On a side note, only 8 tickets left for Saturday's game.  Hopefully the crowd shows up early and is loud.

after louisville's departure to the ACC the rumors of the all catholic basketball conference have really been heating up. It would be really really cool to see this happen, even though probably won't. But the rumors are still there.
