Thread: 2021-22 Men's College Basketball Season - UNC v. Kansas for the Natty

    A Quad 1 win is defined as:

    #1-30: home
    #1-50: neutral
    #1-75: away

    Wake currently has one quad 1 win. It should go without saying that it is in Wake's best interest for Northwestern to move up to the top 30. They're currently #42.

    Unless there is major movement, Wake will only have one (maybe two if UNC moves up from #34 to #30) opportunity to earn a quad 1 win at home during conference play.

    Virginia Tech away is a Quad 1 win and that won't change all year.

    Based upon current NET rankings, chances for additional Quad 1 wins:

    Dec. 29 at L'ville #71
    Jan. 12 Duke #8
    Feb. 15 at Duke #8
    Feb. 23 at Clemson #68

    UNC is currently #33. If they move up a few spots, UNC at WF on January 22 is another chance; then again if L'ville and/or Clemson move down, wins on the road there may not count as a Quad 1 win. Pretty crazy that with a 20 game conference schedule, WF may only play 5 games that qualify as a Quad 1 win. Also, if WF makes a ACC tourney run, WF could pick another quad 1 win or two in that tournament. Even so, the ACC is down, and there won't be a ton of bids for the conference this year.

    There won't be a ton of bids but the ACC name tends to sometimes get it one or two more than it should. If we can avoid Tuesday in Brooklyn, which we'd have to do to be talking about the bubble/toruney anyway, we would most likely get at least one quad 1 chance being from 1-50 on a neutral court depending on how exactly the standings work out.

    Metrics also matter a good deal these days.

    We have made a meteoric rise at Kenpom. If we continue to play at this level no reason that rise can't continue, and that can be a significant feather in our cap

    VT on the road is currently Wake's only Quad 1 win. It is unlikely they fall below #75 on NET, so yeah, I agree.

    2-7 Albany is up 35-26 @ BC at half.

    BC is still losing to Albany with 1:13 left. 58-56.

    Albany has a player named Paul Newman who just committed a stupid foul

    What we have here, is a failure to communicate.

    Albany still up 4 with 0:30 to play

    ACC teams should get banned from ACC Network after losing too many of these gimme games.

    Albany wins. All I could focus on though was that their jerseys say UALBANY with no space between the U and A.

    Albany's first ACC win in its history. How TF did BC beat Notre Dame.

    From the region that gives us UConn and UMass.

    I guess those are at least pronounceable in English!

    Because every game is different, there is more parity that a usual, and ND isn't that good either. The ACC stinks.

    Crazy betting story from yesterday, Chicago State was playing Illinois State and the line was Illinois State -9.5. With less than a minute to go and Illinois State up by 8, an ISU player went to the line and made two free throws. The official scorer had a brain fart (or a bet on Chicago State) and only counted one of the free throws, and the game ended with the official score: Illinois State 80 Chicago State 71, instead of 81-71. It would've stayed that way, but of course, bettors that had ISU started a twitter firestorm. Some sports books recognized the 81-71 final even though the official score was 80-71. Ultimately, the NCAA and the schools are taking steps to correct the error: https://www.espn.com/chalk/story/_/i...tsbook-refunds

    Also, Furman plays at UNC tonight. The game opened with a total of 149.5. It has been bet up to 157. That is about of a big of line move that you will ever see that isn't based on mass suspensions or illnesses.

    Seems to be an attractive under to me. Carolina has played very well defensively of late after a terrible start on that end of the court, and they haven't scored more than 80 in their last 5 games. Furman put up 87 on on USC Upstate but other than that has only been above 80 once against a D1 opponent so far.

    Agree. Furman has played a ton of OT games, which also have inflated their offensive numbers. FWIW, UNC has played well, but Furman is a seasoned team, who already won at L'ville. Think the Paladins have a shot tonight.

    A rare day where the ACC didn’t lose a game.
