Bobby Knight

11W favorite and former Buckeye Bobby Knight will tie Dean Smith for 1st place on the all-time Division I wins list if Texas Tech can beat Bucknell at home Saturday. The win will be his 879th. Combing the record books, I was also able to uncover that Knight is already ranked #1 on the all time F-Bombs Dropped list with 2,803,795,305 in a colorful career. 11W's take is that while The General can lose his mind on occasion, his record of developing kids into successful people is undeniable. In this day age, that ability is more valuable than ever.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Florida Gators big man and leading scorer Al Horford is likely to miss Saturday's game against the Buckeyes. Horford has been slowed by a high ankle sprain causing him to miss the last two games. Head coach Billy Donovan didn't totally close the door on Horford playing so expect it to be a game time decision.
