Oh, when the committee gets handed dominance at a ridiculous level – like 32-1 Gonzaga last year or 34-0 Wichita State in 2014 – they don’t have much choice.

Re: 2/9 | Davidson Wildcats | 7PM (ESPN2)

Easy to forget how good of a shooter Jarvis was before he got hurt/sick a couple years back. So much fun to see him playing healthy again. I have always been a big Jarvis fan too. Followed what Billy and great Rod had said right along. Also remember watching him at ND Prep. And let's not underestim...

On Jarvis: “He’s been the key,” Hurley said. “If he would have gone sour coming off the bench and been frustrated, that would have had a negative effect on the team. Instead, he’s a weapon.” What a great comment by Danny so very true. These guys are the essence of a "team". Very unselfish ...

It's a good sign, program wise, when good players decide against coming to URI because they don't think they'll play. I don't think he'll end up at Temple.
