    basketball season tips off this afternoon!

    Iowa is picked #5 nationally in some preseason rankings, with returning center Luke Garza the favorite of many to be the national player of the year. Garza, who was the most dominant post player in the country last year, isn’t considered an “NBA talent” but is simply dominant at the collegiate level. the Hawkeyes should start an all-White lineup most games (barring injuries, of course), and they only have one black athlete projected to see the floor this season.

    the Hawkeyes open the year with a cupcake today at 3:00pm central.

    Only in America can a basketball star who averaged 23.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game be considered not good enough for the nba. I've heard possible late 2nd round but hopefully after another great season things will change
    a little. They knock his lack of elite athletecism. What a joke. Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Tim Duncan, and countless others were not great jumpers but still some of the best players to ever play the game. The kid is as strong as a bull and will score, rebound
    and block shots with the best of them. Anyways, go prove the skeptics wrong Luke. We know how talented you are. Let the haters motivate you even more. In a fair world he's a sure lottery pick.

    Not surprised Garza isn't deemed an NBA prospect, neither was Ethan Happ who dominated The Big Ten prior to Garza! They just don't "look the part". AKA too White.

    the Jackrabbits kept it interesting, getting to within 4 within the final minute, but the size differential in the post proved too much to overcome down the stretch.

    the best player on the floor in the game, though, was do-it-all guard for SDSU Friedel (pronounced Fry Dell), who flirted with a triple double for a while before trying to shoulder the scoring load in the final minutes.

    “strangely,” West Virginia only had 2 White players see the court (both were American born) but several African nationals ... “weird,” huh? i guess the natives of West Virginia don’t play much basketball these days ...

    Virginia is a team to keep an eye on. they had key contributions from 3 White athletes in a blowout win.

    Michigan State started 3 White athletes yesterday, including their two leading scorers.

    Gonzaga takes on Kansas today in a matchup between expected juggernauts. Gonzaga, a longtime favorite of mine, is loaded for a run at a possible national championship. two White athletes should be key figures on that run with postseason award possibilities (Kispert and Timme), with two others coming off the bench with lots of talent but unknown expectations. will Zakharov and Arlauskas become mainstays or afterthoughts? only time will tell ...

    South Dakota State with 5 whites on the court right now against Utah State with 3 whites on the court. It's a beautiful thing.

    Edey ( i assume he is white or at the very least not part black) for Purdue is going to be a monster at 7 foot four inches and able to move well. They got a freshman in Morton that is also supposed to be really good but coming back from mono. Add an established starter at guard, with a highly recruited forward in 2021 coming and a highly recruited guard in 2022 and this could be a team for the future.
    BYU is definitely a team to watch unfortunately their black grad transfer guard is off to a great start. Stud sophomore Baxter ( the ultra rare case of a black mom) is mixed as well but looks white. Otherwise they are good for the future.

    Kispert and Timme were dominant for Gonzaga in their season opener, as was highly regarded (potential one-and-done) freshman Jalen Suggs. the trio each finished with more than 20 points while being very efficient, though Timme was called for some questionable traveling violations in the second half. if today was prelude to the season, all three of these guys could be up for some All-American credentials. sadly, Zakharov and Arlauskas only got some garbage time.

    for Kansas, Braun and Lightfoot both look to be important contributors. Braun got the start, and Lightfoot is a long, explosive leaper. it wouldn’t surprise me to see both get more playing time moving forward based off today’s showing.

    Belmont is a team that’s flying under the radar to start the year, but traditionally they’re a tough opponent (though usually they don’t have much size). the Bruins start 4 White athletes, and only have two non-White players who even see the floor on a given night. today they cruised against all-black Howard.

    Gonzaga plays again tomorrow morning on Fox. Iowa plays again tomorrow afternoon, and it’s televised on the Big Ten channel.

    Appreciate the write ups gents!

    Nate Reuvers led Wisconsin with 18pts,9reb, and 5blks.

    True Freshman PF Ben Carlson chipped in 13 off the bench. Sophomore SF Tyler Wahl also with 9 off the bench.

    Athletic big man Micah Potter had 9pts and 8reb including an impressive alley oop dunk. SR guard Brad Davison with 6pts and 5reb.

    the NCAA is gonna accuse Iowa’s Luka Garza of a hate crime for his performance against all-black Southern in the first half today ...

    at halftime, Garza has 36 points (on a perfect 12-12 shooting from the floor) and 7 rebounds. Southern has 35 points. again, that’s in one half! he’s playing terrific basketball.

    if you haven’t watched Gonzaga yet, you need to mark them on your calendar. they are GOOD.

    Timme (28 points on 11-16 shooting, 10 rebounds) and Kispert (25 points on 9-14 shoot int, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals) look like All-Americans.

    Will definitely take your advice @Jimmy Chitwood and watch Gonzaga! Even the ESPN guys are thoroughly impressed with the Zags.

    Right now watching South Dakota State vs Saint Mary's, plenty of White Athletes in this one.

    i should’ve mentioned another player in the Gonzaga game ...

    Justin Powell, a 6-6 freshman point guard for Auburn, is a good looking prospect. i would be curious to learn how he ended up playing for the Tigers ... he is their only White player.

    if Luka Garza stays healthy for Iowa this year, he’s my early pick for National Player of the Year. the big man is an almost impossible cover for opposing defenses, especially with all the good shooters the Hawkeyes put out there with him to keep defenses honest.

    tonight Wisconsin is exercising some of that White privilege i’ve been hearing so much about against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. the Badgers were up 25-0 before allowing the underprivileged, affirmative action, minority heroes from UAPB to finally hit a shot. Wisconsin was up 45-10 when i quit paying attention. basketball equity! LOL

    lol Wisconsin is really handing it to the Affletes. 61-28 now.

    I'm somewhat familiar with Justin Powell he played at Trinity HS in Louisville and then a year at IMG I believe. Had no idea he ended up at Auburn though!

    Noticed Matthew Hurt trending on cesspool Twatter. Christian Laettner was the most vilified player in the history of college basketball. And Duke in general when the team has too many white players. It comes from mostly white's eating their own!

    So the strange phenomenon continues after playing Michigan State tonight.......
    Hurt led Duke with 21 points & 13 rebounds. Most admit he's got a smooth game.

    Check out a few of the comments
    Matthew Hurt is the most Duke looking basketball player of all time

    I miss knowing who I hated the most on the dook team before the season started? Who are this kids? Who’s gonna annoy me the most? Who looks like they say, “do you know who my dad is?

    Matthew Hurt blows

    Matthew Hurt is a soft ass basketball player!!


    Matthew Hurt most punchable Duke face since Grayson Allen

    How Duke could have so many terrible players on one team is crazy. If Matthew Hurt is the best player Duke is in big trouble. Most likely will miss Ncaa tourney, just don't see any bright spots

    Matthew hurt is probably going to look like Dirk when we play them

    Matthew Hurt... the perfect name to be the next white guy at Duke that everyone hates

    Shocked at how poorly Wendell Moore has played. Also, if Matthew Hurt is your second offensive option....you don’t have a second option. What a performance by Michigan State

    Seems to be norm on commie Twatter. Still frustrating to see so much hate thrown at our guy's. Really reminds you of why we document this.

    #1 Gonzaga, and their two potential White All-Americans, plays a very dark #11 Weat Virginia tonight on one of the ESPN channels. Should be good viewing and hopefully a (anti-White WVU head coach) Huggins beat down.

    Iowa has moved up to #3 in the latest polls, while Whitesconsin is now at #4. for those who haven’t seen them, the Badgers start 3 White athletes and, at least in the season’s early going, the 4 players off the bench getting significant minutes. they’re very balanced and tough, as well as skilled.

    West Virginia does have McCabe and McNeil! Looking forward to seeing Gonzaga for the first time tonight.

    Badgers took care of business the other night blowing out UW Green Bay. Sophomore SF Tyler Wahl had career highs in points(11) and rebounds!(15)

    Gonzaga vs West Virginia just started. It's tied 2-2. I'm excited to watch this game. Hope Gonzaga can stay undefeated and ranked number 1 in America.
