I got with Matt Norlander and Sam Vecenie late Sunday to discuss a variety of college basketball topics and try to answer some questions. Among them:
• Was anybody surprised UNLV pulled the trigger on Dave Rice midseason?
• What was Rice’s ultimate problem at UNLV ?
• How good of a job is UNLV?
• Who are the candidates to replace Rice at UNLV?
• So Villanova looks like the obvious favorite in the Big East, right?
• Does Virginia have the weirdest body of work in the country?
• Where does Denzel Valentine now rank in the Player of the Year race?
Beyond that, we closed on college football’s national championship game and the effect it’s having on the college basketball schedule. Seriously, have you looked at Monday’s schedule? There are no good games. That’s because of football.
