Basketball Notes

Tennessee's athletic director appears to live in a dream world. Aside from the insightful comment from Roy Williams on Buzz's firing, now we see a list of names being mentioned for the Vols opening. No one on that list should want that job.

Terry Holland appears to have a good strategy for hiring a new basketball coach in Greenville. That said, I am of the opinion that ECU needs someone with head coaching experience. I think Holland is right when he says that a former head coach who has something to prove would be ideal. The rumors are still circulating that Doherty may be the guy, but I would really find that a bad fit. I could see Buzz there though.

If the NCAA Tournament teams were seeded according to the academic progress of the athletes, the #1 seeds would be UNC, Alabama, Villanova, and Pacific. Of note: Texas (under Rick Barnes) would be a 16 seed, Duke would be a 5 seed, NC State would be a 15 seed, Georgia Tech would be a 4 seed, and Wake Forest would be a 3 seed. How about an Illinois-Kentucky matchup in the opening round?

Did you see that dunk from Rawle Marshall of Oakland in the NCAA Opening Round game last night? He'll be in the NBA next year. For now, he takes his game to Charlotte to face UNC.

I can't wait to see Tyler Hansbrough in Carolina blue next year.
