Okay jet -- you'll populated a preview of upcoming matchup for now let's flashback to charities that. Blake Griffin returning to the court for Oklahoma less than a minute and scary moment for sure their fans.

And he also set the NCAA record for career free throws made in the game. And is -- you know those there's some great players up there and community is very tough spot you know it's an honor.

Foxsports.com. Okay much more to get too including a little insight into the Aussie invasion of Saint Mary's in northern California hoops is -- continues after it. Welcome back to hoops hysteria I'm Bryan Webber coming up Utah head coach Jim Boylan will join us -- stopper bringing back Jeff Goodman Jeff let's previous on the big games this week's starting in the big twelve Oklahoma taking on Missouri and the Tigers bounced back from the big loss to KU. Yeah they need to I mean obviously you don't want to -- -- be golf tournament. With a couple you know absolute -- -- -- got to play -- pride itself airport thought that you did different during games. What you don't -- all the the big -- as well because. -- thought -- can't forget that number one's feet even if you don't win the big twelve regular season if they win out it goes up at a Houston Oilers are reluctant candidate. Without going through different we've got rejected would -- only eleven minutes. I think there's your report report on your terms of the number one seed in the dirt places -- she'll be able with the we're we look against Kansas we are a legitimate you know. Top -- this type team and we need to get our swagger back to make sure that we don't cold you know caught up. -- you're down. When you don't have the eyes of the team like Oklahoma and Missouri make up that would be. So later court in this super beef -- -- typically prefer -- luckily he's not a quality. Stick great guy but I think you'll be able to handle I think he'll do well more often. But did return him to really worry satisfactorily. -- -- perfect certainly not a 100%. Terms of being out a week of practice. I'm not sure you'd like to be completely back for the start bringing. In other big twelve action -- -- on a roll like Kansas coming up that big when we talked about -- Missouri who has the edge in this one. You know you gotta like this right now by our record really plays first wife right now I mean they're there he was fifth in the league. Will be wiper for fifth consecutive big twelve title. You know walk worked really really -- -- I don't know that you going get a right now there's. They're really struggling report porn star player not -- coach to -- him in big kudos but again not really hit. People take it over game and dominating. You know by himself and put it came -- -- back. So this one's going to be keeper Bolton is what a big twelve got a lot of good games certain on the stretcher. Let me put you on the spot you think Kansas is going to win the big twelve title. Ideal ideal absolutely I'm. Right now they're quite it was just about any team in the country. Okay let's head to the Big East. Pittsburgh with a real tough week taking all Marquette -- -- will this help them or hurt them as they get out for the Big East tournament a New York. Not I think Pittsburgh is going to be okay here especially. All of the really felt defeated the -- better we saw what DeJuan -- didn't hear that she's could be. While some around. Seen that you felt goes both important factor for anything anymore in the upper. But I I -- -- -- this group often that he can hold you don't hear what are we got the best of them. A couple three years here but I it is going to be a tough one. Are you gonna win on the world just look at it just felt like without Jerome Dyson and up Felger of the work in progress for. Part of the reason -- struggled a little bit against Notre Dame and all of the other night. So I'll push you for another prediction you come looking to wrap up the Big East title with a win over Pitt do you think they get it done. Now I think Pittsburgh going to win this game I like a matchup -- like the toughness of Pittsburgh. You know that mental fortitude I think they're going to give this horrible. Okay Jeff we'll talk more basketball would you and a bit right now let's get a little international labor Saint Mary's certainly has a global dimension to the program and back. Five other players hail from the land down under our Christian Anderson caught up with Patty Mills and other aussies making an impact for the -- Saint Mary's OC has a connection comes from a friend Bob wants festival arm and tape on them that you -- it was -- it's because it. I'm mostly go to us right a lot of them think and days and -- though very comfortable Panthers through the president's. Trust. Coming from Melvin which has caught a lot better over the California so those are a big. The big -- me coming out of the west coast. The guys into the Australian institute of sport want to hear that I kind of think like the Chinese and having -- Virginia and make it where it got eighteen hours a day and take away from their family it's not anything like that for you guys wasn't. -- -- Not it's pretty intense sexually drew they only practiced like three songs that I. We do like it's not as intense as like to a session so we do officiating in the morning. An individual during the afternoon and like Austin region team practice. -- -- -- It meant to be there around but those other two threes that I'm I'm really -- had a had a Grubman is plateaus. And -- -- really helped me. Voted this might become -- -- whose name is there in the country as a what don't you care about American Americans. So. And they other. You know what the -- difference is not that much mode and it's saying he is truly like. Bulls easily get more out this calm not say anything to anyone -- rarely has the Fossum that it. And Americans is sometimes -- most sensitive to us that you say don't I think abuse policy difference. Tasting it but -- take buses are sitting here today. Messaging me gamers back Evans says it's not one of the top sports in Australia. For me I'm not much difference. It's a whole armor and what's your favorite thing about American culture. You know him the most fun thing was the metal support that. You know people with giving behind. Closed so in any sport and that -- be impossible. Hopefuls -- what -- it -- -- passport. Q it's very nice places because I don't on this crazy it is something that you thing. You know you see that much -- back. But others loved the atmosphere Phil just told them hospital experiences line on a team get anywhere else in the world that that college feel that barman. That's once and lost on -- -- all been here full of years now and our plans are much of god and movies. Christ and when somebody new things and good near relationships. Is the end Neitzel of the world -- he can get that -- girls. Okay Christian thank you let's talk about the Mountain West Conference for that we're joined by Utah head coach Jim Boylan Jim tipped ball for the he's and I told you the utes would be ranked. Number nine in the RPI this late in the season at a team like global Illinois UCLA how would you overactive. Well I would have been doubtful and and probably surprised but. You know we did sit up the schedule that I -- -- -- In the -- -- -- never -- -- -- We did have a schedule -- -- packages in the top thirty in the air. And you know -- story didn't. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- states wonder the utility states wonder -- the Oklahoma's right there are so. We put good schedule but we've also gotten other teams we've played they've war and then that little sure PI. It took over a program that have fallen on tough times coming off back to back losing seasons what was the biggest challenge in changing the culture. Accountability for your actions in the ownership of of the system and -- of how we do it in. You know once you establish the system however one of things Garland. I like getting my guys to take ownership of it too human guys step -- horrible. I had a lot of guys that. Didn't want to be coached. Just wanted to be right. And that elusive combination. During your stint as an assistant with a rocket to coach a pair pretty good big men yelled may get a team -- you want how does that help you in the development of -- double with you to. Well I think first level of credibility I think that's important. -- listen to be right away. Didn't have a net to -- what you convincing for him to a understand that I can help implement. Then where he wants to go to coach guys who we want to be like so. That was really a big help for me. In in general in recruiting and run in this program I think approached and -- has been a great. The effort for us in what we're trying to build but you know what -- Luke was a good player and again here didn't think you work hard enough to Dickey was tough enough to think cared enough. I didn't think he was invested. In what was trying to be Garvey was kind of a separate entities. And you know he took ownership of how he plays that you wanted to play well. -- didn't take ownership of winning. But making his teammates better and united like that I obviously that's that's -- -- was great that's Leo was great that there is great dead. And it destroyed the talking about that instill that in the him -- and understand he can't do little. You also worked for Tom Izzo of Michigan date I'm sure you learned a lot from -- but what was the biggest thing you took away from your time working in East Lansing. Will debate the united two different stints with -- When I was there the first time. When I was GA and I was third assistant. The only kind of movement way up we live together. So we are both single and live together in all the it was work in basically works at all. I learned a ton from him we -- to try to judge. We have good teams while we're there -- good players in. Sort sought I was an assistant coach how he worked. We used -- how we supported as head coach and learn from that in the -- but he came back -- saw him as a head coach established head coach. In how we operated as program what he what he thought was important. You know. You know -- he made -- guys accountable. I don't know of war and what -- would generous with me. When I was when I went back for the second time he. Tried to explain everything to me. His score went back it was for me to become a head coach he wanted to help -- do that. I don't think I don't know either it was you know -- what happened -- -- -- going to -- so fast but. It was just a great great experience for me. Finally on paper the mountain west could and four maybe five teams the NCAA tournament how confident are you -- we'll get that made it. I think we're four bid league. That's my opinion outside I think reform this week. It and right now -- seen in. Kind of people that into account of each other here towards the end you know we'd be the biggest -- -- meat grinder game we go to -- -- -- and you can see that down the stretch and -- unbelievable conference tournament. With competitive games in in the very supporters. But I think we're forbidden the we've -- -- -- -- we've racer. League schedule. And we've got really good teams in. You know content here this week it's. It's really turned into. Just a great basketball league -- places to play. As good environments plane and I also think we're becoming a coach's lead to. -- was what Lon Krueger stuff on paper roses and Steve Fisher. Steve Belfort. Quality improvement we've made here so it's. It's exciting exciting for the future for the sweet. Jim thank you best of luck in the tournament it's time now -- -- done of the week let's start with the stuff. Trent Johnson and LA can clinch their SEC title with a win over Kentucky that's thirteen consecutive conference victories for the Tigers. Many thought Johnson was crazy believe example for the by you what he had tiger on a major role. -- done in the wake of the Missouri Tigers could have won seven straight games before they were blown out by the defending big twelve champions Kansas. 1965. Mike Anderson's team dealt a huge -- what they try to win the big twelve this year they shot just. 35%. From the field and -- you -- nearly three of seventeen from beyond. Okay we return -- that'll tell who's in who's out. Yeah NCAA tournament after this weekend's action. Both sisters coming back after the. Welcome back to hoops -- I'm Bryan Webber coming up we'll hear from West Virginia head Coach Bob Huggins on his return to answer daddy but first let's welcome back in Jeff Goodman Jeff. Another exciting week in college basketball leaving empty ecstatic. I'm disappointed as we get up for the field of 65 so let me ask you about two teams who could've punched their ticket to the big dance this week. You know wanted to think Tennessee they were there were certainly have the inside. Going into week but the win against Florida. On the roading -- bill that put him squarely in. Humidity -- and and -- -- believe -- played -- talked about schedule and to get that want to -- that Florida's number. That gets the ball right in the -- a few years ago. The other thing about it and not -- People like you get their victory over Utah. Put that -- pursue -- in the about what they've won seven of their last city. We'd win over Utah they -- swept aviator being. I think job right now the Cougars are are are certain lock -- the -- -- public are. How about two teams and other bubble burst. Well -- -- without I think and about your football or our sport right now if you get into that think you -- considerable. And it's going to be tough for them to overcome that. Because then they're really out the -- week the -- Gideon. You know they booed at about a who's got a tough year this year realistically be Aggies to play well. And have a good record to 25 or always thought the couple games of the lack. But they're all legitimate top fifty win. Maybe even top seven -- when it came to get cute earlier this season trying to grind -- the world team. Probably any other that would give -- and I'm not -- -- can get him elected when the -- idol. The other team that I -- is got you on the outside today is important USCB. They just swept. -- is the crowd they ever did we give it to him under the 500 mark in the fact they're really really. Struggling and it really surprises me -- they have the talent I noted doctor some injury problems. Throughout the season but they're pretty healthy right now and they did not playing like -- double eternity. Okay Jeff thank you to bearcats had a great run -- Bob Huggins his head coach but fired in the 2005. And -- Huggins has taken over his alma mater West Virginia -- in daddy's still remembering the good times with -- the -- they honored their former coach this week. People say you can never go home again. But West Virginia University head Coach Bob Huggins returned to Cincinnati for the first time since he was let go as the basketball coach at UC. And 2005. Huggins -- the bearcats to fourteen consecutive NCAA tournament appearances from 1992 to 2005. He said that he knew coming back to fifth third arena would be emotional and that eventually it would get the best up. I don't know this question what's going to script itself is going to have a special place in my heart I mean I thought. You know -- I couldn't help but I don't. Europe and become very emotional. Limited to. An important in my -- to do so I didn't want them that it won't but I don't disrespect reflective look. And I knew it was going to happen wanted to look what I mean honestly I was and from their bachelor. And so you're Senator. McCain morneau or commitment and realize those -- two wrong bench until. The officials came over there. I've got enough. I don't know -- members of. -- There wasn't a completely sweet homecoming for Huggins as his mountaineers lost to the bearcats. 65 to 61 against that his team can rebound this weekend against USF and try to make a bid for another NCAA tournament. From fifth third arena in Cincinnati Ohio on John mariner Lester dot net college network. Okay let's bring back Jeff Goodman to have a break down his top five teams in college basketball let's go to number five where you have the Big Ten regular season champs. I deal I'll go with Michigan State out of their last week. They come up with a pretty good win on Sunday. Illinois Champaign. And got big they're just start big LB you don't read Bob Morton look a little bit like himself. Obvious start to collect a little bit on all cylinders right now like -- whose -- group. Cody -- number four this week. You know -- -- suitors. You know they they they haven't Alberto -- -- career but I think they've built -- can't forget that you know two -- three spot. And might have been there at fully correct -- not gotten hurt me you know a lot a couple of games. But I still like the Steelers right now. Lot of people think North Carolina as the best team in the country you have the number three how come. Well I still think it suffered some some bad losses in a car or does not quite as good in the Big East. You know that Boston College plot the Maryland law -- -- -- -- -- -- But I think meek cal a lot of ball horrible and their biggest issue right out still to me is he expects. So we're left with a pair of biggie teams who do you have a number two. Go with Pittsburgh you know built a lot of the Providence. F Providence knocked -- down one spot. But I still think you're very very close between wanted to right now. And that puts you come back at number one but they have a tough week coming up -- they hang onto the top spot. Yeah I mean this is going to be top form I mean they go to Pittsburgh. I still think Pittsburgh and up beat them and it takes the number one spot next week. But that it all comes out of the Big East are men -- hope these two teams play in the championship game. All right Jeff thank you we'll talk you later in the week and now before we go let's recap the best plays of the week in college basketball. That'll do it for this edition of hoops hysteria for your college basketball need to keep a log on the foxsports.com. I'm Bryan -- we say goodbye with the best. From college cheerleading this week.
