Win or go home for X.
Split regular season with CU.
X is 0-2 against CU in BET play.

IMHO X wins 47 times out of a hundred given how each team is built and recent trends. From where we were 4 weeks ago, I will take these odds and run with it. Nervous, gonna be a tough battle, but LET'S Go X...!

Too bad X is off to a slow scoring start. Tempo is not in X's favor.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Goodin is the opposing team's leading candidate for MVP early on once again.

yea, CU's three point shooting must mean nothing to you.

Alexander is lighting up Goodin again. Such lazy defense. No way we can keep up with Creighton tough match up.

It does, as do Goodin's three turnovers, disguised as three-point shots. Goodin sits, and X is making a comeback. Coincidence? I like driving and dishing Goodin. Loathe early, middle, and late three-point shooting Goodin.

BTW, Larkin is ripping Q. Great hustle, steal, and drive! Good Q starting to rear his beautiful head. Shame on Larkin.
