Just arrived here at the media seating in the Verizon Center, which is...not very close to the court. Anyway, Marquette is currently throttling Miami, 41-23, at the 14:47 mark of the second half. Also, we've got starting lineups for IU and Syracuse:
F — Christian Watford
F — Cody Zeller
G — Jordan Hulls
G — Victor Oladipo
G — Yogi Ferrell
F — C.J. Fair
F — James Southerland
C — Rakeem Christmas
G — Michael Carter-Williams
G — Brandon Triche

mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Miami's Trey McKinney Jones has a couple of nice assists in a row, and Miami's showing a little bit of life here with 8:19 to play. The Canes are still down 14, however. It's going to take one heck of a rally to make this interesting.
It didn't get more interesting, unfortunately. Miami still trails, 57-42, with 4:50 remaining in what will be its final game of the season. The Canes absolutely cannot make a shot right now, either. On their most recent possession, it seemed like they had four offensive rebounds without a made basket. Rough.
I wasn't sure whether Miami's loss of big man Reggie Johnson for this weekend would be a huge problem or not...but Marquette is outscoring Miami in the paint, 30-20.
Howdy, Oaken! Good to have you here tonight.
Oak is in the house!
You've got to love Oaken's use of emoticons!
Marquette did indeed finish off Miami, so the winner of IU-Syracuse will face the Golden Eagles. A couple of pretty good storylines there: if it's IU-Marquette, it's the battle of Tom Crean's former employer and his current one. If it's Syracuse-Marquette, it's a fight between two Big East rivals.
Wait until he breaks out a

The best one I have used was the when you missed the game in Chicago
Possibly my favorite moment on the thread this season.
Both IU and Syracuse are out on the court for the final few minutes of warmups. The clock says we have about three minutes until warmups are done.
What up SD?
Also, for those of you who don't know, Ohio State leads Arizona by six with a little over three minutes remaining. That might be worth a watch...I believe it's on TBS.
We getting people in the thread tonight. Love this. Hopefully I can post all game. I had to take a time out in the Temple game
Indiana: Hulls, Watford, Oladipo, Ferrell, Zeller.
Syracuse: Michael Carter-Williams, C.J. Fair, Brandon Triche, Rakeem Christmas, James Southerland.
Watch for IU to come out with Ray Lewis intensity tonight -- John Harbaugh gave the pre-game pep talk.
It's good to see a pretty good crowd here tonight...the gang's all here.
Also, just a disclaimer, the Internet has not been kind to me so far. It’s been drifting in and out.
Zeller in the high post, Oladipo running through the back door. Indiana draws a shooting foul to start the game.
Shot-clock violation on IU's second possession. I'm not sure if Ferrell realized that the shot clock didn't reset after a near-turnover by Hulls that ended up in Watford's hands.
Hulls on Triche. Triche attacks right away and gets a layup. Some early looks at the matchup talking points.
2 on Christmas.
Rakeem Christmas sits with two fouls.
