Join me today for the live chat thing. Click here starting at noon Eastern to go live or do it earlier and submit your question in advance. All topics welcomed! Keep me on my toes and make up a team and a player. (“Hey, John, how is it that I’m not seeing Cal State-Oxnard’s Charlie Stratton on any mocks? That kid can flat out shoot the rock!”) 

And because I believe that no Unfiltered post should be limited to a shameless plug for a chat, please accept a comment on the sounds of this here sport:

Last night Memphis beat UAB 71-60 in Birmingham, running the Tigers’ C-USA win streak to a rather ostentatious 55 in a row since March 2006. I’ve been watching hoops since I was a wee lad and I’m not sure I have ever heard a crowd react with an actual audible groan the way the Blazers’ crowd did when Doneal Mack of Memphis hit a three with 2:36 left to play to push the Tigers’ lead to 63-55. Usually the success of the visiting team is met with a telling silence by the home crowd. This, conversely, was sadness that made a sound.

(Speaking of sadness, one Blazer had a bit of an off night.)
