As is UCLA. NW is only 2 spots away from becoming Group 1 and UCLA only 6. If both moved up those spots today we would be 4-5 against Group 1 and 3-1 in Group 2. Combined 7-6.

Baylor has also rebounded as of late so they aren't teetering on bad loss (Group 3) status.

Man this league is brutal. #1 team in the nation at home having trouble with last place 0-11 team down 2. Marquette coming off a 3 game losing streak up 38-31 at the Hall. I’m sure they’ll both turn it around but shows how tough it is no matter the game.

We gotta come out focused tonight.

When St John’s actually moves the ball on offense combined with their length and turnover ability on defense they’re a dangerous team. Best 0-11 team I’ve ever seen.
Chris Mullin coach of the year? ;)

Nova looks like they are in trouble. Something like 1-12 from 3 and not getting any good shots, getting blown by on defense. Look like a totally different team than we faced. AND they are getting called for fouls - at home.

Marquette stretches its lead to 10 now. Don’t mind seeing Hall lose.

Nova paniced....shouldn't have hoisted a three on the possession down 2. Lost them the game.

That sucks. Really wanted Nova to be #1 when they come to Omaha.

Yeah St. John’s couldn’t stop Brunson down low. 90% chance they’d draw a foul with him. Love it though. Only 2 games back of first everybody!

Now let’s make sure to avoid this upset bug epidemic going around the Big East tonight.

Hope Nova shoots like that from 3 in Omaha. They only shot 8-33 and if you take away Gillespie, they were only 4-27.

Nova had a chance to tie it, but got a horrible 3 pt attempt when they were only down by 2.

Nobody ever seems to have an “off” shooting night against us ...

True that^^^^. Nova nails 19 3pt baskets against us. Tonight vs. SJU, 8 threes, shoot 24% from deep. As someone posted once on the TBC:"We hand out more career nights than the local community college" :lol:
