Now that conference play is heating up its time to focus on college B-Ball in preparation for March madness.

As a Georgia Tech grad I am partial to the ACC. But with two sons at Texas Tech (now I undersatnd those bumper snickers about "My sons and my money go to ...":rolleyes: ) I also follow the Big 12 - both conferences are B-Ball powerhouses and will be well represented in March.

The Red Raiders were robbed.

It appears that the clocks run a little slower in Oklahoma:28: :14: :11:

Officials reviewing Texas Tech-Oklahoma finish http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/mensbasketball/big12/2003-01-22-texastech-okla-review_x.htm

LUBBOCK, Texas — Big 12 officials are reviewing a tape of Texas Tech's 69-64 overtime loss at No. 7 Oklahoma to try to determine whether there was a glitch in the game clock during the final seconds of regulation.

Television replays of Monday night's game, which was broadcast by ESPN, show that two pauses on the clock may have affected the final seven seconds of the second half and given Oklahoma extra time before Hollis Price's buzzer-beating shot forced overtime.

The outcome of the game cannot be reversed.

"We're aware of an apparent clock problem," Big 12 spokesman Bo Carter said Wednesday. "We're just going to evaluate things. We're working to correct any clock problems and doing a review with all the schools."

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported on its online edition Wednesday that TV replays showed the Sooners may have gotten an extra 1.7 seconds before Price's off-balance jumper tied it at 60.

The first clock pause appeared to have happened with 6.7 seconds remaining when the game was tied 58-58.

Tech then went ahead 60-58 after Will Chavis made two free throws with 4.5 seconds left. On the ensuing inbounds pass, Price appeared to dribble the ball twice before the clock started, and went the length of the court for his game-tying shot, which was in the air as the buzzer sounded.

ESPN broke down the apparent clock problem during a segment Tuesday night.

Dale Kelley, supervisor of officials for the Big 12, said that if any clock problems had been noticed before the teams left the floor, officials could have reviewed it and might have adjusted the clock if they found it necessary.

Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg contacted Texas Tech coach Bob Knight and Oklahoma athletics director Joe Castilione about the review, league spokesman Chris Theisen said.

Given repeated opportunities Wednesday to comment by The Associated Press, Tech basketball spokesman Randy Farley referred all inquiries to Big 12 officials.

"Once they've looked into it, they'll call us and tell us what they think," Texas Tech athletics director Gerald Myers told the newspaper. "That's about all we can do right now. They're not going to reverse the game, once it's in the book."

Oklahoma officials are awaiting the evaluation.

"Until they come back and figure out exactly what went wrong, I don't foresee anything happening," Sooners basketball SID Mike Houck said. "You can't correct something until you know what's wrong."

It's probably not big nationally but Michigan hoops team has been a roller coaster this year. Started the season 0-6 (even against some bad teams), two players dismissed from the team and general chaos. Since then they have 12 straight wins and are 5-0 in the Big Ten. They are still not a great team but it's a remarkable turnaround. Very entertaining to watch. It's almost like watching the movie "Hoosiers" (except not likely to be a championship at the end).

I was going to say "couldn't happen to a nicer guy" but that would be about as far from the truth as I could get.:D Certainly, he is a coaching legend. I am sure ESPN will be all over it.
