Put the biscuit in the basket

Have they made the rims smaller or something?

Just this past week, you had Savannah State held to a record 4 points in the second half against Kansas State in an 85-25 loss back on Jan. 7.

Then St. Louis scores all of 20 points -- 20 freakin' points! A record low total -- in a 49-20 loss to George Washington.

I kind of understand Savannah State's woeful performance as they were overmatched vs. a Big 12 team. Quite frankly, what's Savannah State doing in Division I in the first place?

Unfortunately, Division I college basketball has about 40 Savannah State's mucking things up.

New Jersey Tech? North Florida? Kennesaw State? Longwood? Did you even realize these are Division I schools? Are you kidding me? But that's a rant for another day.

Back to the business at hand.

What's the Billikens' execuse? This isn't some infant program and they were playing against a team that, statistically, they were superior too.

So what happened? The were 7 for 48 from the field. They missed 23 consecutive shots. They were 1 of 19 from 3-point range. I've never seen such ineptitude.

But I actually think the worst stinker of all came via Michigan State on Saturday.

The Spartans could manage a pitiful 36 points in a loss to Iowa. Sure they didn't set any records, but going into the game they were the sixth-ranked team in the nation sporting a stellar 14-1 mark. So how does this happen? How does a team with championship aspirations manage only 36 points?

Sadly, I don't think we've seen the end of this atrocious scoring as its been happening all season. Remember that 47-44 barnburner between Louisville and Miami (Ohio)?

Based on the way teams have been shooting this year, I think another team is going to give the Billikens a run for their money.
