  1. We saw last place Oregon State play at now 6th Place (of 12) Cal Thursday night in Berkeley, two sub-.500 teams. It was a good game, high energy on both sides, highly contested, played above the rim but also with good outside shooting, tough defense on both sides, and very entertaining. Ms. BAB and our guest, who has a share and gets a handful of Golden State Warriors NBA games, both commented how good it was to have those Pac-12 refs let the two teams play, not call fouls ad infitum and turn the game into a free throw shooting HORSE match. The lousy, regressing Atlantic 10 of hopelessness could and should take a needed lesson. Of course, they were probably asleep Back East. In the A10 almost every trip into the paint results in a foul, whether it's really a foul or not, if the shooter misses the shot. That slows down the game, as if the Eastern Block half court chess matches need any help in slowdown. Today matches two offensive minded, defensive challenged teams. The over/under is a high 163 points. SLU is now -5.5, a 5.5 point favorite. Let the players play, and let's watch an entertaining game. Swallow the whistles. Try it, you might actually like it.
  2. To borrow from Cal: Who are we? SLU. And who’s gonna win? SLU. Go Bills!
  3. SLU leads the all-time series 13-9 and has won the last 6 meetings. GW has never beaten SLU in St. Louis. Let’s Go Bills!

  7. Rodney Dangerfield: “What a crowd, what a crowd,” at Gola.
  8. That’s not exactly an SRO crowd for tonight’s “titanic struggle,” as Marty Brennaman would say, at the Gola Mausoleum.
