No change from last week after the 17-4 whooping over Fairfield on Saturday. They'll likely earn a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Good for Len. iHoops is the NBA and NCAA's efforts to improve basketball activities for America's youth. The goal is essentially to expand the popularity of the game at the grassroots level. I don't know how this'd work, but I'm praying for it to become a recruiting tool somehow. - BB
