NCAA Thursday results continue to display lack of dominance

Only three contests Thursday in the NCAA.  The results continue to display a lack of dominance by any one team.  Quite the opposite, more parody than ever before is the standout state of affairs.

Michigan State, ranked No. 10, took care of Wisconsin, No. 22, at home 58-43.  If No. 8 Michigan upsets No. 2 Indiana on Sunday afternoon, and if the Spartans beat Northwestern a few hours later, then Michigan State will grab a share of the Big Ten regular-season championship for the fourth time in five years.

Number 19, Oregon was soundly beaten by Colorado, 76-53 at Coors Events Center.  Colorado opened the game on an 8-3 run and led 19-6 by the midway point of the first half.

Colorado’s lead swelled to 23 points, 52-29, after Jeremy Adams’ dunk, but the Ducks managed to cut it to 62-45 on Kazemi’s layup with under nine minutes to play.

Oregon couldn’t get closer than 19 the rest of the way as Colorado picked up its fourth straight win over the Ducks.

No. 25, Kentucky, continued their disappointing season, losing to Georgia 72-62 in Athens.

“I am so disappointed in the job I’ve done with this team,”coach John Calipari said. “I’ve never had a team not cohesive at this time of year. Every one of my teams was cohesive. Every one of them had a will to win more than how they were playing. Every one of them had a fight. Well, if this team doesn’t have that, that’s on me. What in the heck did I do?”

It was a very bad night for the Wildcats.  Nearing the end of the game Georgia cleared its bench, while Kentucky had three players foul out.

Once again, I remind you, Selection Sunday is one week and two days away.
