Kentucky basketball has finalized its 2017-18 nonconference schedule

Eight of the Wildcats’ 13 opponents — Kansas, UCLA, Louisville, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Vermont, Troy and East Tennessee State — reached the NCAA Tournament last season (https://www.seccountry.com/kentucky/kentucky-basketbal-schedule-complete)

“We are going to have what could be the youngest team in the history of college basketball,” UK coach John Calipari said in a school-issued news release. Of his 11 scholarship players, three are sophomores and eight are freshmen. “We had to take that into account when building this year’s schedule. How do we prepare our guys to be at our best at the end of the season — which we’ve done nearly every year —"

NCAA Selection Committee to put greater emphasis on road wins - http://brockway.blogs.gatorsports.com/13723/ncaa-selection-committee-put-greater-emphasis-road-wins/ …

Team sheets will now be divided into home games against teams ranked in the RPI Top 30, neutral court games against teams ranked in the RPI Top 50 and road games against teams ranked in the RPI Top 75. Previously, team sheets only took into account games against RPI Top 50 teams, regardless of location.

Gators will play at least three non-conference games against teams that finished in the RPI Top 15 last season (Florida State, Cincinnati, Baylor) and could play up to five RPI Top 15 teams if they face Gonzaga in the second game of the PK80 Tournament and Duke in the third game in Portland. Clemson will be another RPI Top 100 opponent (75), while Stanford (105), New Hampshire (125) Loyala-Chicago (184) and Gardner-Webb (188) are RPI Top 200 teams.

Last season, Florida played its first 11 games away from campus (8 neutral court and 3 road games) due to the O’Connell Center’s renovation. In the regular season, the Gators went 10-3 in the non-conference schedule and 24-7 overall, helping UF land a four-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Looking at UF's non-conf sked, Gators could play at least three RPI Top 15 teams and up to five if they face 'Zags, Duke in Portland.

Bulldogs added much-needed muscle to the 2018-19 non-conference schedule by adding mid-major power Dayton for a home-and-home series. The addition of the Flyers to the non-conference slate is a big step toward building a more respectable schedule as MSU basketball continues its long march back to respectability.

Commodores could face nine teams who advanced to postseason play last season.

7-18 Vanderbilt men’s basketball non-conference schedule has been set, and the Commodores, who played the number one strength of schedule in 2016-17, are at it again in 2017-18, with nine of their potential games against teams who played in the postseason a year ago.  Six possible opponents, USC, Rhode Island, Seton Hall, Virginia, Kansas State, and Middle Tennessee, all played in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, with NIT participant Belmont, 2017 NIT Champion TCU, and CollegeInsider.com Tournament team UNC Asheville also on the challenging slate.

The Commodores will play nine of their non-conference games in Memorial Gym, including games against Pac 12 member USC, Big 12 members Kansas State and TCU, and 2017 Conference USA champion Middle Tennessee.

Vanderbilt’s two true road games will come against Belmont at the Curb Center on November 13 and at Arizona State on December 17.

Commodores’ Thanksgiving tournament takes them to Brooklyn, N.Y., and the Barclays Center for the NIT Season Tip-Off, with potential games against Rhode Island, Seton Hall, or Virginia, all teams that advanced to the 2017 NCAA Tournament.  The bracket for the tournament in Brooklyn has not been released.  Home games against Austin Peay and UNC Asheville will also be a part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

"We need one more game and we need that game on Dec. 19," Pearl said. "We are really trying to finish with that last one. It could be home, it could be on the road, it could be neutral. That's the date we need to play. It's where it fits in the schedule and we still, believe it or not, still have a few options."

Auburn has announced eight non-conference games, including four neutral site games, with three at the Charleston Classic and one against Middle Tennessee at the BJCC in Birmingham. There are also home games with UConn, UAB and George Mason and a road game at Dayton.

Pearl has been trying to schedule a Power 5 team, even for a road game, and that is still on the table for this last opening.

"Of course we have UConn and Dayton and the tournament (in Charleston), as far as our power conference teams," Pearl said. "Could this one be? It could be."

LSU basketball releases 2017 nonconference schedule

LSU has released its 2017 nonconference men’s basketball schedule, which is highlighted by a trip to the Maui Invitational.

The Will Wade Era officially tips off on Nov. 10 — also known as the night before the Arkansas football game — against Alcorn State at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

Tigers also have a Nov. 16 home game against Samford before making the trek to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational, where they are scheduled to play Michigan in the opening round and either Notre Dame or host Chaminade in the following game.

Once LSU returns from Maui, it gets six straight home games — Tennessee-Martin, North Carolina-Wilmington, Houston, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston State and North Florida. The Tigers don’t play a true road game until they wrap up the nonconference schedule at Memphis on Dec. 28.

Based on last year’s results, the schedule should give Wade a chance to get his LSU tenure started on the right foot. Outside of the Maui Invitational, UNC-Wilmington is the only NCAA Tournament team on the slate.

SEC announces 2018 Men's Basketball schedule (http://www.secsports.com/article/20444397/sec-announces-2018%E2%80%88men-basketball-schedule)

Southeastern Conference unveiled its 126-game men's basketball schedule for the 2017-18 season on Thursday. Conference play tips off the weekend of December 30-31 and runs through Saturday, March 3.

Each SEC team plays the other 13 teams at least one time during league play. They will then play their three permanent opponents a second time and the remaining two games will be scheduled on a rotating basis. The fifth annual Big 12/SEC Challenge will take place on Saturday, January 27.

Kentucky (2), Missouri (4), Alabama (Eight), Florida (11), LSU (14), Arkansas (20), Texas A&M (27), Auburn (28) and Georgia (31) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top 31 of ESPN's RecruitingNation Class Rankings for 2017. Twenty-six of ESPN's 2015 Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including 21 of the top 66 players.

Three SEC teams (Florida, Kentucky and South Carolina) advanced to the Elite Eight in 2017. South Carolina's appearance in the Final Four marked the fifth time in the last seven years that the SEC has had a team playing on the final weekend.

The SEC Tournament will be played west of the Mississippi River for the first time when the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo., hosts the event from March 7-11, 2018.

Quality wins: How Kentucky basketball stacks up against Louisville
(https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/908031210710077441/pThJPcfS?format=jpg&name=600x314) (https://www.seccountry.com/kentucky/kentucky-louisville-basketball-preview-2017-2018-schedule)

Quote
Kentucky basketball will play five nonconference games against Power 5 teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season — Kansas (Nov. 14 in Chicago), Virginia Tech (Dec. 16 at home), UCLA (Dec. 23 in New Orleans), Louisville (Dec. 29 at home) and West Virginia (Jan. 27 in Morgantown) —

Kentucky has zero returning starters and only 7 percent of last season’s points and 15 percent of its 2016-17 rebounds back. The top six scorers from last year’s Elite Eight squad —
are gone.

Coach Rick Pitino’s side does return its second- and third-leading scorers: senior guard Quentin Snider and junior forward Deng Adel. Senior forward Anas Mahmoud, junior forward Ray Spalding and sophomore forward V.J. King are also back.

Almost 50 percent of Louisville’s scoring output from last season returns.

Our (way-too-early) prediction

Kyle Tucker: Kentucky 77, Louisville 72

Joe Mussatto: Kentucky 71, Louisville 69

Louisville will sport the more veteran side, but history is working against the Cardinals in Rupp Arena —

Bob Huggins: Playing at West Virginia a ‘great opportunity’ for UK (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article173351606.html)

Quote
“I think it’s a great opportunity for Cal to come to Morgantown,” Huggins said. “Why is it such a great opportunity for us? Why isn’t it a great opportunity for them?”

Kentucky will play West Virginia in Morgantown for the first time since 1970 and for only the third time in series history on Jan. 27 as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Kentucky is 15-5 against West Virginia all-time and has hosted the Mountaineers 12 times, including a stint where West Virginia made regular trips to the UKIT between 1958 and 1965. Kentucky won the most recent matchup, 78-39, in a 2015 NCAA Tournament game in Cleveland.

Can work on improving their craft:

Yante Maten carried Georgia offensively during Sunday's exhibition loss to Michigan State.

Maten scored 33 points in the Spartans' 80-68 win over the Bulldogs. Maten did his work in 31 minutes, giving him an average of 1.1 points per minute on the floor. Maten enters the 2017-18 campaign were as the co-SEC preseason player of the year by the media.

Georgia and Michigan State set this exhibition up last week to benefit victims of Hurricane Irma. Proceeds for the game, which took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, were split 50-50 between the two programs.

Alabama men's basketball team rallied from a 12-point halftime deficit to No. 14 Minnesota, but lost 89-84 to the Golden Gophers at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Saturday afternoon.

Freshmen phenom Collin Sexton again starred for the Crimson Tide, scoring 40 points in the loss--31 of them in the second half.

But, even crazier, the Alabama team finished with three players on the court after the entire bench was ejected for rushing the floor.

Arkansas basketball vs. Houston: Preview, TV, how to watch
(https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/936943622158725120/Plf_6QhZ?format=jpg&name=600x314) (https://www.seccountry.com/arkansas/arkansas-basketball-vs-houston-preview-tv-how-to-watch)

Quote
7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 CT) on Saturday, December 2 ESPN

Razorbacks beat projected NCAA Tournament team Oklahoma last week and also have wins over hopeful-bubble team Fresno State and the projected Patriot League champs Bucknell.

Houston would immediately vault to Arkansas’ second most impressive win in the early going. The Cougars were not highly thought of entering the season, picked just sixth in the American Athletic Conference behind UConn, which Arkansas blasted by almost 40 points last week.

Arkansas is favored by four points in Las Vegas.

This game marks Arkansas’ fourth consecutive away from home. It’s the first time in 11 years the Razorbacks have played four in a row out of the Natural State.

Beyond the arc: 3 takeaways from No. 5 Florida’s 83-66 loss to rival FSU http://www.gatorsports.com/2017/12/beyond-arc-3-takeaways-no-5-floridas-83-66-loss-rival-fsu … via @GatorSports.com

Quote
— Florida coach Mike White challenged his trio of big men, junior center Kevarrius Hayes, redshirt sophomore forward Keith Stone and sophomore center Gorjok Gak, to raise their level of play after inconsistent showings at the PK80 Tournament in Portland. But none answered the bell. Hayes played with effort, but was consistently manhandled inside by FSU big men Phil Cofer and Ike Obiagu, finishing with 3 points, 2 rebounds, 3 blocks and 3 turnovers. Stone had 5 points, 3 points and 3 turnovers as well, while Gak had just 2 points and 4 rebounds in 7 minutes.

— With shots not falling early, Florida went back to its dribble drive approach rather than moving the ball around to get better shots. The Gators, who came into the game with a stellar assist-to-turnover margin of 2-1, had just 7 assists to 17 turnovers against the Seminoles.

4th straight win in the series for FSU.

Florida basketball: Gators slide continues with disappointing loss to Loyola-Chicago

No. 5 Florida trailed by as many as 13 points and trailed most of the game in general against Loyola-Chicago on Wednesday night on the way to a 65-59 loss inside Exactech Arena at the O’Connell Center.

Two nights after a humbling 83-66 home loss to Florida State that left White searching for answers in his postgame comments, the Gators (5-3) delivered another ice-cold offensive performance while shooting 36.9 percent from the field and only 2 of 19 from 3-point range.

The Gators didn’t have a single player score in double figures. Jalen Hudson (3 of 11 from the field, 0-5 on 3s) and Chris Chiozza finished with 9 points each, KeVaughn Allen (3-of-11, 1-5 from 3)...

Rough day for the SEC: Georgia loses to UMass, LSU to Stephen F. Austin, Ole Miss to Illinois State and Florida to Clemson.

UMass completely controlled and dominated this game from start to finish. Matt McCall and this group continue to overachieve. Not a good loss for a Georgia team hoping to get into NCAA tourney.

Vanderbilt pulled off an upset in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, beating TCU 81-78 at Memorial Gym Saturday.

It was indisputably the Commodores’ best win of the season. TCU (15-6, 3-6 Big 12) entered the game ranked No. 16 in NCAA RPI and just falling out of both Top 25 polls this week.

Vanderbilt (8-13, 3-6 SEC) now has two of its top three wins this season in its past two home games, including a victory over LSU (RPI 88) a week ago.

Seniors Jeff Roberson and Riley LaChance combined for 44 points, continuing their recent hot streak since fellow senior Matthew Fisher-Davis was lost for the season to a shoulder injury. LaChance scored 24 points with four 3-pointers. Roberson had 20 points with three 3-pointers.

"It's hard to get zero free throws. That's a first for me." - TCU coach Jamie Dixon on not attempting a FT against Vandy. (Although he said there were calls missed on both sides)

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — To be clear, Kentucky had done nothing to indicate what was coming during the final 17 minutes Saturday night at West Virginia. Not all season, and certainly not in the preceding 23 minutes against the seventh-ranked Mountaineers.

The Wildcats, with neither a top-25 victory to their name nor a non-freshman in their starting lineup, trailed WVU by 17 points. A capacity crowd of nearly 16,000 howled with deafening delight as one of the most suffocating defenses in college basketball had just about squeezed the last gasp out of these stunned visitors.

And then: Kentucky 83, West Virginia 76.

Soon to be departing Scarblog: From Collin Sexton breaking ankles and speed limits to John Petty painting rainbows. From Donta Hall rejecting everyone in his path to Dazon Ingram dropping long-distance dimes. From Braxton Key rejoining the party to Herbert Jones reducing the nation's best player to a spectator at the end.

This wasn't the whole show, but this was the special Alabama basketball team we'd been expecting to see.

That it came against No. 12 Oklahoma and the leader for national player of the year in Trae Young made it look like a scary premonition of what's to come down the road. That it happened in front of as loud a sellout crowd as Coleman Coliseum had heard in ages made it feel like a blast from the past.

Alabama 80, Oklahoma 73 was a statement in bold, capital letters. The Crimson Tide isn't just an NCAA Tournament team waiting to happen. If it keeps working, it has an NCAA Tournament run in the offing.

SEC wins Big 12/SEC Challenge for first time in series history (https://twitter.com/Michael_Carvell/status/957441882061230080)

Quote
SEC entered Saturday’s Big 12/SEC Challenge as underdogs in several key matchups.

However, thanks to big wins from Alabama and Kentucky, the SEC came away victorious 6-4.

The Wildcats’ 83-76 win over host West Virginia clinched the victory and avoided a 5-5 split for the second consecutive season. This is the first time the SEC won the event, which started in 2013-14.

The Crimson Tide pulled off arguably the biggest upset of the day, defeating Trae Young and No. 12 Oklahoma 80-73 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Young scored 17 points, his lowest output since the first game of his collegiate career.

Meanwhile, host Florida took down Baylor 81-60, and Tennessee went on the road and routed Iowa State 68-45.

Arkansas won a close matchup with visiting Oklahoma State, coming from behind to defeat the Cowboys 66-65. Host Vanderbilt also won a close one, upsetting TCU 81-78 in Nashville.

Georgia, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Texas A&M were the SEC teams that lost Saturday. Auburn, LSU, Missouri and Mississippi State did not play in the event due to the Big 12 only having 10 teams.
