Your College Basketball Announcing Schedule (Week of February 11th)

Monday, February 11, 2008

Here's your CBB Announcing Schedule for the rest of the week brought to you by SI's Cheerleader of the week West F'ing Virginia's Chrissy Kemmner (Middle, not the Mountain Man....peace ya'll). Chrissy likes to draw and says she gets angry in traffic (don't we all)....Ready? Okay!

I know it's a slip of the keyboard, but "Virginia Tec"?
Since she's gonna be at both MSU games this week, will Idong Ibok get a pep talk from EA?

Did Doug get the old man a job?

As mentioned in comment 1, add the "h" to "Virginia Tec" on Saturday's slate of games (VT-NC) and remove the "h" from "John Sciambi" on Thursday's slate of games (Fordham-UMass).

Here is some good analysis on tonight's prime time college basketball matchups I found on

Villanova at #6 Georgetown (ESPN | 7 PM ET)

Over the course of its 5-game losing skid, Villanova had surrendered an average of 80.6 points per game. The Wildcats clamped down on Saturday night against Seton Hall and allowed the Pirates to shoot just 39.3 percent for the game. It marked only the second time in 10 Big East games this season that Villanova held a team at 40 percent or below. EDGE: OVER

The 43-41 halftime edge the ‘Cats held on Saturday night represented another change of pace. It was the first time in 8 games that Villanova held the lead entering the locker room at halftime. EDGE: GEORGETOWN – FIRST HALF

Georgetown took 2 of the 3 meetings between the squads last year. All 3 encounters were decided by 5 points or less and the 2 regular-season contests were in doubt until the final possession. EDGE: VILLANOVA

The Wildcats have failed to cover 6straight games, and they are 1-12 ATS in their last 13, including 1-10 in Big East play.

The UNDER is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings at Georgetown.

#5 Kansas at #12 Texas (ESPN | 9 PM ET)

Kansas leads the series 14-5 yet Texas leads 4-3 in games played in Austin. SLIGHT EDGE: TEXAS

Texas leads the Big 12 in three-point field goal percentage at 39 percent behind the guard play of sophomore D.J. Augustin and junior A.J. Abrams. EDGE: TEXAS

Under head coach Bill Self, Kansas is 53-24 in games away from Allen Fieldhouse, including a 31-13 true road game record. The Jayhawks have won 9 of their last 10 Big 12 road games. EDGE: KANSAS

On the season, the Jayhawk bench has outscored its opponents 645-429for a +9 advantage per game. BIG EDGE: KANSAS

The Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games.

The Longhorns are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Monday games.

I want to know what St. Johns, Cincinnati , Dave O'Brien and/or Doris Burke have done to you!

Ha the Jon/John mistake was ESPN's as well and they just changed Bob back to now we know.

And Westminster Live-Blog...sorry.

Feb 11, 2008, 6:12:00 PM  

Oh and I always think MD has a chance at Duke...I was referring to Dukie V and Patrick on the call.

Feb 11, 2008, 6:13:00 PM  

I'd have to say our(St. John's) cheerleader of the week is better

or perhaps you're more of a dance team guy

we do them too....come on awful annoucing when are you going to feature that?

Johnny Jungle said...
Feb 11, 2008, 6:41:00 PM  

Too much west coast for Brent and Steve....

I swear Patrick and Duke Vitale would do a Duke/Oregon State game if they wanted too.

Dukey V is so bad that he is good.

I love watching Duke MD with Dukey on the mike. Its like I'm sitting Courtside at Cameron.

Gus Johnson is doing the VA TECH-UNC game.

Sonny from said...
Feb 11, 2008, 7:03:00 PM  

If Gus is doing the VT/UNC game, I'm assuming he'll be working with Clark Kellogg then.

I know it's been brought up before, but how does a team as shitty as Michigan get so many national TV appearances??

Anonymous said...

Off topic, but how funny is it that the Rutgers/Tennessee game on ESPN 2, ends in a dubious foul call (there was a foul, but it looked like time had expired) resulting in winning free throws, and then Georgetown/Villanova on ESPN ends on a BS foul with 0.1 left, resulting in winning free throws?

Also, my personal hell takes place on Wednesday at 7pm.

Help us Bambale Osby, you're our only hope.

AA I know you and I cannot wait for the Terps to make their annual visit to Juan Dixon Indoor Stadium. And I think Dook may soon be naming their court, General Greivis Court.

On a completely unrelated note, Bonerama is performing on the David Letterman tonight!

Any reason EA isnt being allowed east of the Appalachains?

Duke / MD Where's the Raycom blackout when you really need it ?
Dookie V and Mike Patrick best reason for watching at a sports bar
where the sound will be off.

@ awful announcing
Hope you didnt see the John Fienstein love letter to Dookie V in the washington post today. I had trouble keeping my dinner down.

Go Terps!

God. Don Criqui. He is horrible. If you think he's bad at football, then you've seen nothing yet. That game will be a yawner.

As the lone Duke fan...i'll be the first to say i don't like Dickie V, other than the passion he has for the game. GO DUKIES!!

and glad to see Kansas just lost, never a bad day when the Jayhawks lose. what a game though

We had 3 great games tonight. Nova/G'Town, Rutgers/UT and then KU/Texas. Great games all around all coming down to the wire. This is why I love basketball baby. It's awesome with a capital A!!!!

@Anon #7- you just brought back some bad memories with the Pete Gillen reference(I'm a VA fan). Just wanted to say thanks...

Virginia Tech @ North Carolina will have the pairing of Gus Johnson and Billy Packer. That's right. I wonder if Packer will tell Gus to stop yelling.

Not to nitpick, but it is former Cleveland Cavalier Sedric Toney calling the Albany State Fort Valley State Game with Charlie Neal on Saturday. I know nobody cares, but I actually liked him when he was in the league.
