-- On "(College) GameDay" Kansas destroyed Texas, affirming my prediction that sans P.J. Tucker the Longhorns are due for a long and difficult season. The Jayhawks looked like a completely different cast of characters from the ensemble that left Villanova vulnerable and confused.

Losing to the Fighting Illini is one thing but, in the eyes of the NCAA Tournament committee, getting thumped is another. Then again, Dan Monson's squad is in good if not great company. Both Gonzaga and Wake Forest went down hard.

-- Don't look now, but Wake Forest's Eric Williams is on a tear. In his past three games, the junior center has averaged 26 points while making 75 percent of his shots (33-of-44) from the field. Rob Daniels of the Greensboro (NC) News & Record credits "Big E" with Wake's gut-check victory over Miami. He's right.
