Great link. I had an idea what it stood for but never looked too in-depth. Apparently we have 2 quadrant 1 wins (Miami and Illinois) and 1 quadrant 2 wins (Saint Louis).

There is a decent chance St Louis goes up to a q1 win by the end of the year.  They're a pretty good team.

Agreed.  I was pretty shocked to see us just blow them out of the arena.  Maryland teams haven't really done that very much since Gary.  STL beat Providence and Memphis and lost by to number 11 Auburn.  So they are absolutely legit.

They, and especially Scott, played about as poorly as they could and it was still close. I also hate games that change so much from half to half. In the first half they let the two teams play and in the second half Wisconsin was in the bonus in something like the first 6-8 minutes and Maryland very closely after that. The game becomes so disjointed.

In any event; put it behind us and move forward.

Not sure if I heard right, but they had a 2 of 17 shooting stretch toward the end. Was only even close because Wisconsin kept missing free throws. But, it's actually encouraging they were that awful shooting and still in position to tie at the end. Made a few bucks betting on Maryland when the line got down to +8.5. Tough loss but kinda fluky (they're not gonna shoot that poorly again although they also aren't as good shooting as they were during their hot stretch of games).

I actually made some money on it too because I had a feeling they were in for a clunker.  Wisconsin also got to the line 15 more times than Maryland. 

I remember in the past there was mention that Maryland plays with a Under Armor all and everyone else plays with a different (maybe Reebok?) ball.  When they come out in their first away game, makes me wonder if that messes with them.  But I honestly don't know.  So weird that you can supposedly use whatever type of ball you're affiliated with.

Yeah was feeling a down game coming too. New to betting but waiting for games to start and betting in-game seems like the way to go when the line swings too far in one direction early on.

The different ball thing really is so bizarre. We have struggled greatly on the road in recent seasons. Not sure how much of that is normal road woes but would think using a different ball doesn't help.

I'm afraid this team is about to come crashing back to earth.  Don't have the size or depth to compete with the top tier teams.  Once Reese went out with his third foul the first half was a rout.

Young, Hart, and Carey are too streaky as shooters.  Can't have off games like that on a regular basis.

I don't know if they will crash down to earth. But they will lose some altitude. They had a great start to the year but it seems like expectations may have gotten out of hand.  

They play good defense, they hustle, so I expect at least a .500 finish in the Big Ten.  I still think they'll end up with a 4-5 seed, maybe as high as a 6.

I see the Big 10 is regaining its heartland balance by getting UCLA to go with Maryland.    

DC Media Market, LA Media Market - check.     All the kids in the small Indiana towns can keep measuring the height of the rim in bigger and bigger buildings as long as Jimmy Chitwood keeps making his shots.

Probably neither the owners nor the players are gonna like the travel time and expenses.

That was pretty pathetic yes? It's as if the team that played smart, hard defense with a well run offense was replaced by last year's team. 

Looked like a totally different team. Definitely playing on empty. That four game stretch was just brutal. They don't have the depth obviously. Normally we'd have nothing but cupcakes lined up under Turgeon, maybe they'd face one legit team pre conference play. This year was just way too much but you still can't come out looking like that.
