SUMMARY: This game captured my intrests for a while but it gets boring after a while as well. The anouncers say the same things over and over and over again. The pro hop makes it unbeleivbly easy to get closer to the basket and get a layup.The game had tons of teams which was to my liking and had confrence tournaments NCAA,muia,and both NIT tourniments.I was a bit dissapointed that in the mascot game some of college teams weren't there.(I'm not sure how many) Includeing my favorite team. These probably doesn't bother other people but when I was setting up my schedule teams would say they didn't want to play me yet I asked them again and they said yes. And also when I was making my schedule I had won the national chapionship the year before with Kansas State and was ranked preseason #6 and I asked Syricuse and their response was 'Are you kidding we didn't even know that your team existed."

What doesn't make sense is an inherant lack of offensive sets in the game. There are plenty of plays, but there is simply no point in using them. In fact in most cases the computers defense is so good that if you do run a set offense, you'll experience turnover a...
