U.C. IRVINE loses 79 to 80 AT UCLA ! Those 5 returning

  • starters for UC Irvine must be pretty good ???? Also Duke's veteran players (Even though Senior Guard,Andre Dawkins did not play last night & 6'11" Redshirt Freshman ,Marshall Plumlee did not play last night for Duke either) still managed to defeat the #1 rated recruiting class in America !! How sweet it is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also St. Joseph's of Pennsylvania & Memphis State both won their openers by LARGE margins. That makes 17 of the 29 teams/schools that reportedly had all 5 starters back that got started with WINS !! Sometimes the less experienced team pulls off an upset, but the huge majority of the time it is the team with the most Experienced & battle tested players that wins the game .. Even Kentucky last season had what I consider to be the most Underrated Senior player in the country in D. Miller and they also had two Sophomores who chose to return to play for Kentucky instead of going pro. [Of course, they would have had to take a pay cut to go pro,VBG !!!]
