A good day in college basketball deserves a dramatic ESPN-esque title.
#2 UCONN or #9 Gonzaga
#11 Syracuse* or #21 Memphis
*Orange should take a hit in the rankings win or lose today due to their being upset by Cleveland State at home.
With an Irish win (knock on wood), we're looking at being ranked 7th or 8th in the nation. If we can hold that into the Big East season, our exposure as a national program will get a nice boost and help out recruiting. Also should lift the team's self-confidence a bit over the holidays.
Let's get a solid win tonight.
