College Hoops Barometer: Burning Bridges

Though March is the month usually reserved for monumental upsets, a couple of memorable results over the past week served notice that college basketball is more than capable of providing drama and intrigue all season long. The Florida Gators, ranked in the top five in the polls, were steamrolled by Florida State by a score of 83-66. The Gators were outrebounded by a 51-34 margin, while shooting an abysmal 6-of-25 from three-point range. They then proceeded to lose a buy game to Loyola-Chicago on Wednesday night. Perhaps even more shocking was Ball State taking down a top-10 Notre Dame squad on a near buzzer-beater. The Irish got caught in an uncharacteristically high scoring affair, and were also demolished on the glass in the 80-77 defeat. Then there was the actual buzzer-beater in the Oregon-Boise State tilt, with the Broncos walking off on a half-court heave with no time on the clock. The moral of the story? Cinderella doesn’t need to wait for March for an invite to the dance.
