    One last point on Cincinnati and Cronin. He's the most extreme Caste coach I've ever seen as Jack Lambert illustrated by hi lighting other terrible coaches occasionally throwing a bone to a White player. To go a decade with no rotational White players takes effort. There are plenty of 6-10" to 7'-0" White guys who could play 10 mins a game and simply take up space and grab a rebound or 2. This is a deliberate effort and in my opinion worse than any 90% black roster Del NegRio, Tomlin, Saban or Haslett could put together.

    Back to the tournament, my prediction to watch out for SMU was dead wrong and I'm glad it was. They are an odious coal team now out! My other hated team from the East region New Mexico State also crash out hard. I'm watching Dayton vs Wichita State and both seem to have a similar amount of our guys. A good game so far.

    Thanks for helping me make my point, Freethinker! There are a lot of white players that can be rotational guys out there. I agree with you that it's deliberate and calculated. He makes nearly zero effort to recruit white players. According to the website VerbalCommits, he's got 2 offers to white players (who aren't considering Cincy at all) out right now... out of 27 total offers. Minimal "effort" indeed. It's unfortunate his odious squad is set to advance against K-State. Hopefully, UCLA is able to bounce them on Sunday.

    In some stats for the day, Grayson Allen led Duke with 21 points to go with 5 rebounds and 4 assists in the Blue Devils' destruction of Troy, yet another all-black squad.

    Against Louisville, Jacksonville State center Norbertas Giga exploded for 30 points and 9 boards! Not bad against a team with so much "upside."

    Dusty Hannahs had 14 points, 3 assists and 2 boards as the Razorbacks knocked off all-black Seton Hall.

    Michigan and Oklahoma State came down to the wire, with both offenses buzzing and both defenses mustering little resistance. I was very impressed with Cowboys big man Mitchell Solomon, who grabbed 5 offensive rebounds, basically cleaning up after his volume-shooting point guard. The sophomore was apparently the #3 offensive rebounder in the country this season. Look for him to make even more impact next year. Oklahoma State will turn over some of its rotation players and should be even more white-friendly.

    Moritz Wagner never really got going for Michigan and had one of least-impactful outings in recent memory despite the attention he commands in offensive sets. Despite his areas for improvement (rebounding, defensive strength, consistency), Wagner is Michigan's most likely future NBA prospect due to his length, shooting range, and visible potential. Here is a terrific article recapping his unlikely journey to American college basketball:

    When Moe Wagner met Michigan: How chance, a film clip and an email changed everything
    http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2017/03/when_moe_wagner_met_michigan_t.html


    Essentially, a friend in Europe with a previous acquaintance to John Beilein sent highlight tape on Wagner's behalf, and Beilein just happened to perk up at the right moment. Wagner had zero interest from NCAA schools before he was directly solicited by a personal reference, despite having featured in Germany's youth teams for years.

    This is interesting to ponder over as you watch the lower-tier power conference schools clash with the mid-majors and small conference auto-bid teams, so many of them stocked with middling, interchangeable black "talent" specially recruited from no-go zones across America. There is a huge pool of superior talent in Europe that goes completely ignored. St. Mary's might not be particularly magnetizing to some of Australia's top young players - the Gaels just bothered to invite them. Our alma maters are not forced to present these players to the world - they actively choose to do so.

    Of course, this does not mean to overlook the hundreds of American whites who are overlooked for scholarships every year at the expense of the on-court product.

    Regarding the households of the coaches of white-friendly teams, I am noticing a strong correlation (in this year's tournament especially) between white coaches raising a son and fielding a team of their sons' peers.

    Brad Underwood at Oklahoma State is currently coaching his son. Greg McDermott of Creighton is the father of Doug McDermott, who played for him before making the leap to the pros. John Beilein's son Patrick played for him at West Virginia. UCLA's Steve Alford is currently coaching his son, Bryce.

    Greg Gard of Wisconsin, Mark Few of Gonzaga, Tony Bennett of Virginia, and Randy Bennett of St. Mary's have younger sons who aren't yet playing age. Notre Dame's Mike Brey has a son, Kyle, who played college football. Both Bennett coaches (no relation) played for their own fathers at some point in college.

    Are there any coaches at what we'd consider "white friendly" major programs that miss this criterion? It's obviously not some ironclad rule, and surely plenty of other white coaches with kids have managed to conform to the status quo without going "full Mick Cronin." Nevertheless, an interesting phenomenon. I bet Steve Sailer would post about this topic if we could suggest it with a bit more data. Am I missing anybody?

    edit: Kellen Marshall, son of Wichita State's Gregg Marshall, rides the bench for his dad

    I would like for you to please delete my account along with all of my posts. I'd rather just send you a private message but this should be my last post here and I just want to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to all of the regular posters on this site who helped preserve my sanity throughout the years. I wish you all the best.

    It appears South Carolina, as a 7(!) seed is playing in South Carolina, giving them a home-court advantage over Marquette, and it's showing. How in the hell does a 7 seed get home-court?? It's ridiculous, and of course, it would be to the detriment of a white-friendly squad. Although a Marquette loss sucks, at least SC will be losing to Duke next round.

    I checked St Mary's roster, and 7 of their 15 players are from Australia.

    There's a reason St. Mary's has been referred to as "Team Australia" :). They have their pick of the best talent out of that country. They have one of the best Australian talents in 2017 off guard Angus Glover committed for next year as well.

    Also, great post Phall! It's amazing how many talents would never be in college if it wasn't for just one coach or program looking for them. Look at Gonzaga and all of the quality talent they've had from overseas; I don't think anybody recruited guys like Karnowski besides the Zags. If coaches really wanted to win, they'd be mining talent from Europe or Australia.

    Albany (of all places) is another team that has been mining Australian talent; all three of their 2017 commits are from Australia.

    You're starting to see more Europeans slowly making their way into the college game. I'm just hoping it's not at white American players' expense.

    UCLA wins as expected.
    The announcers talked about Lonzo Ball from start to finish.
    No doubt he is a great player, but TJ Leaf is also a great player, and also a freshman.
    The storyline could easily be (and should be) this incredible freshmen duo. But instead it's all about Ball.

    Meanwhile here's the stats from the game:
    Ball - 15 pts 4 rbds, 3 assts
    Leaf - 23 pts 6 rbds 2 assts
    Welsh - 16 pts, 8 rbds, 3 assts

    So really Ball was the 3rd best player tonight for UCLA . . . but as far as the media is concerned, he IS the team. So annoying!

    I think with Ball, the media is already covering up the very real possibility of a majority white UCLA rotation winning the NCAA Championship. So naturally they are trying to give a black player ALL of the credit, and hype him up as the reason a team full of white guys could be so good. However, those of us who actually watch UCLA can see that Leaf, Alford and Welsh are just as big of reasons for UCLA's success. With Ike Anibogu (spelling?) hurt right now, it doesn't help the media's cause, as that gives white reserve Gyorgy Goloman Welsh's backup minutes as well in addition to Leaf's. I'll give Bill Walton credit again: even though he hypes up Ball as well in the games he did this year, he still gives Leaf a ton of credit as a great player and reason why UCLA got turned around this year.

    Watching the Notre Dame - West Virginia game right now. WVU is another nearly coal black team that is allowed to basically play football on defense by the referees. Constant hacking, grabbing, and holding, and no fouls called unless they pretty much knock the offensive player to the ground. And the cuck announcers praise WVU how they are "the best pressing team in the country." Well yeah, defense is a lot easier in basketball if you are allowed to constantly grab your opponent.

    This game is just pis#ing me off. The Irish need to get aggressive and angry.

    They get home court advantage because the South Carolina government acquiesced to the globalist agenda and removed the Confederate battle flag from the state capitol grounds. The globalist-controlled NCAA then ended their boycott of not having tournament games in the state. This is in contrast to neighboring North Carolina, from which the NCAA removed all tournament games because the state courageously passed the bill to not let transgender pervert mutant freaks from using the same bathroom as women and little girls. The pedophile degenerate satanic globalists want to expose our wives, daughters, and mothers to abuse from perverts, so they do everything in their evil powers to make this happen. All part of attacking and demoralizing humanity and morality and turning us into their compliant slaves.

    God bless the state of North Carolina for standing up to these satanists. I hope Duke and North Carolina meet in the championship game as a big FU to the NCAA. I also hope North Carolina never gives in to this globalist aggression.

    I've said it before, but could you imagine a white team like Notre Dame running this press? Their team would foul out by halftime. West Virginia is like VCU, able to constantly grab and hack without many fouls getting called, and it's ridiculous. They're also shooting really well from the field. Notre Dame is only down 7 though. Hopefully they can rally in the 2nd half.

    Notre Dame is done. It's unbelievable some of the stuff getting called on Notre Dame, yet West Virginia somehow has 0 fouls in the 2nd half so far!! Absolute BS.

    Hey, this how Wisconsin lost to Duke in the final game 2 years ago. The Badgers got called for 2 fouls in the first half and 13 in the second. The refs can basically determine the outcome of a game if they are so inclined and the talent difference isn't too great.

    Didn't even watch most of the 2nd half. After West Virginia was only up by four, they went on a big run (fueled by grabbing and fouling - most of which wasn't called) to get it up to 10 again, and I turned it off and didn't even bother. Throw in the fact they shot the lights out, and it's not a fun watch. There's still a lot of our teams left - Wisconsin, UCLA, Duke, Butler, Purdue, Virginia, St. Mary's, Arizona, and maybe even Michigan and Northwestern. UCLA, Purdue, Butler, and Virginia all have great chances to advance today, while Arizona or St. Mary's will advance. Duke should advance tomorrow as well.

    Well, Wisconsin is doing holding steady against Villanova. However, Happ has been afflicted with "playing defense while white" fouls, having picked up two quick ones before the 10 minute mark. Koenig has come to play again today, having hit several big shots already. Badgers up 20-12.

    Meanwhile Nova should have already been called for about 5 reach ins. Go Wisconsin. Refs make sure to keep the game close anytime Badgers start to pull away.

    Wisconsin up at halftime by four, 31-27. The Badgers played great without Happ in the lineup, and managed to keep their lead! Illikainen and especially Pritzl got some good burn off the bench in the 1st half. Hoping for a good 2nd half for the Badgers.

    Now Koenig is on the bench with three fouls. Wisconsin still up four, though.

    Wisconsin is going to have to gut this one out; now Happ is on the bench with three fouls as well!! Curious how often this "seems" to happen with white players, isn't it? Villanova has been pressing, and they've only got 2 fouls in the second half now too!

    Cronin allowed Connor Barwin (former Bearcat football player and current NFL DE) to play some decent minutes for his exclusively tar-hued team in 2005 and 2006. Aside from him, I can't think of anyone else in the subsequent 10+ years.

    Wright on Villanova just took a roundhouse swipe at the ball when one of the Wisconsin players was dribbling and almost dislocated the guy's shoulder, knocking him to the floor in painful agony. This forced the ref to actually call a foul on Villanova.
