The B-Fox and B-Frank Show

History is made on this week’s show as the guys have a lengthy list of winners this week starting with:

  • Wyoming: The Cowboys had the best possible week you can have in a strong Mountain West beating Colorado State, Boise State, & Fresno State.
  • Kansas: A dominating performance against Baylor over the weekend & a win earlier in the week over Iowa State vaulted the Jayhawks to the top of the Big 12 standings.
  • Marquette: Despite a close loss at Providence, the Golden Eagles bounced back & knocked off Villanova to complete the season sweep over the Wildcats.
  • Illinois: A huge win over Wisconsin early in the week powered by a huge performance from Cockburn was followed up by the largest margin of victory for the Illini ever at Assembly Hall.
  • Arizona: This team continues to impress & bounced back nicely against UCLA following their loss just a week ago. They then put the clamps on against USC & picked up two of the best wins you can get this year in the Pac-12.
  • Texas Tech: How about the job being done in Lubbock by Mark Adams? The cupboard certainly wasn’t bare but there were issues last season with getting the new pieces to gel. That is not a problem this year. Tech welcomed back Chris Beard with a thumping of the Longhorns & find themselves in the AP Top 10.
  • Murray State: The Racers are finally in the Top 25 at 22-2 on the year & a perfect 12-0 in the Ohio Valley.
  • Saint Mary’s: Quietly, the Gaels have been rock solid this season, they are in the Top 25 & sit 2nd in the WCC just behind Gonzaga. The metrics love them & they still have games against Gonzaga on the horizon.
  • Gonzaga: Credit to the guys for not going on & on about the Zags this year, but it is hard to keep quiet now. The Bulldogs stomped BYU in Provo & Chet Holmgren is really playing at a high level right now.
  • Arkansas: The Muss-Bus is back on course, the Hogs have won 8 straight & sit 3rd in the SEC, Jaylin Williams has been sensational this year & the guard play is really starting to pick up.

Like we said, a LONG list of winners but there is also a healthy list of losers too.

  • LSU: Will Wade’s team was swept last week in their games against Vanderbilt & Ole Miss. The Tigers have lost 6 of their last 7 & seem to be in free-fall mode.
  • Iowa State: The losses to Kansas & Texas in a vacuum aren’t bad but once again they have failed to score more than 50 points in the Texas loss.
  • Xavier: You cannot lose at home to DePaul without Javon Freeman-Liberty.
  • UCLA: The loss to Arizona is understandable, but the loss to Arizona State (in 3OTs) is inexcusable for a team this talented.
  • UConn: It was a tough week for the Huskies, they lost to Villanova & a very streaky Creighton team & have really hurt their chances at a Big East title.
  • Georgetown: It is hard to believe that 11 months ago the Hoyas won the Big East Tournament & made the Big Dance. Patrick Ewing & co are currently 0-10 in Big East play.
  • UNC: The Tar Heels simply no-showed in a game they really needed against bitter rival Duke.
  • Michigan St: Golden rule of this podcast, you can’t lose to rutger.
  • Iona: The Gaels dropped their first MAAC game of the year to Niagara.
  • Miami: Losses to Notre Dame and UVA will set the Canes back in the ACC and NCAA Tourney hopes.
