Well..that was a little too easy. Good to know Jays we’re the last team to get their number. Hopefully we can build off that game vs Nova as motivation for the transition to next year.

Maybe all the guys on Jay Wright’s team will turn pro. At least Bridges and Brunson are gone

Anyone see Grant Gibbs getting his ankle broken in that commercial?

You had to see that coming. Game was a total mismatch. UM had a easy path to this game. Hell NU beat them by double digits.

Put Nova in the Big 10 and they go undefeated and no one comes within 20 of them.

The Big East is a Beast.

Nova just might run away with the conference again next year. Bridges is forsure gone, I could see Brunson coming back, but unlikely.

Jahvon Quinerly (5* PG), Collin Gillespie at point, Phil Booth and DiVencenzo on the wings, Paschall back at the 4, Spellman likely back at the 5. Cosby-Roundtree and Samuels were highly recruited and they'll be better. Cole Swider will get minutes at the 4. They just reload. IF Brunson comes back, it's over. If he doesn't, they're still the best team by far.

Nova is the supercharged version of Doug’s senior year team. Everything that team had plus height and athleticism. That’s the best offensive I have ever seen. They could very well repeat next year. Wright was ahead of the curve by a decade with the 4 guard lineup, and has fine tuned it into a machine.

I agree, if Spellman comes back they will be top of the Big East again. If he doesn't, it "could" be a race, not sure with who yet.....

I will be shocked if Brunson comes back. The way he left the court, his embrace with Jay, how he handled the trophy, etc., just seemed to me like a guy who has already determined his time at Nova is through. I think it highly likely Paschall and Spellman go also. I know Spellman is a frosh (redshirt), but he has the size, strength, an excellent shot (50% overall and 43% from 3), and rebounds. He will get a look. Paschall has two championships and is a redshirt junior. What more is there for him to accomplish? We will see, but won't surprise me in the least for them to lose 4 starters.

Interestingly Creighton was the last team to beat Nova and apparently CU was one of only two teams to beat Nova when they had their full lineup - focusing on positives.

As was mentioned during the broadcast many times he will graduate in 3 years as well. Two titles and a diploma make for a damn successful college career. Time to see what he can do at the next level.
