James Harden is talented but . . .

I know James Harden is an excellent player, but what Herb Sendek (who I have some respect for) did with him at the end of Pac-10 final was the most atrocious piece of coaching I've seen this weekend (and there has been a lot of bad coaching this weekend).

What the hell Sendek was doing twice running an NBA-esque 1-4 set with Harden on an iso in the final minute of Arizona State's stunning (and damaging for bubble teams) loss to Southern California mystified me to no end. Your team runs the Princeton offense for heavens sake! You know, passing, cutting, all five guys moving? You know the things that make your team so difficult to defend. How could you do this to me (and all the other Terrapin fans you #@#$)

What is it with coaching and the last two minutes of games because while I may not know jack about recruiting or dealing with teenagers, I swear I could sit on the bench and do a better job of coaching the final two minutes of a college game than most of these people.

This is an open thread with a bunch of purposes. Who do you want to see get into the NCAA tournament that is on the bubble? Where do you think American will go and who might they face. Other than James Harden and Blake Griffin who are you looking forward to watching in the NCAA tournament, whatever the reason maybe? And whatever other college basketball issues might be on your mind.

I will answer the last question. I want to see Saint Mary's make it so I can watch Patty Mills. And in this year of craziness, I think a healthy Mills could help Saint Mary's emulate the legendary George Mason Patriots. The similarities are there. Like GMU, Saint Mary's lost in its conference tournament. Like GMU they will be a (somewhat) controversial choice if they get picked. The one major difference is that if Mills hadn't got hurt, Saint Mary's would be easily in the field and a lot of folks would look at them as a sleeper for a Final 4 berth. Well Mills played a game Saturday night against Eastern Washington and all reports say he is now 100 percent. Get on Saint Mary's if they make it to the Big Dance.
