I also cheer for Univ of Dayton since I used to work there and got to watch Jimmie Binnie from DSM play.
It is really hard to not like Northwestern basketball.
Any team playing Iowa.
Last years Kentucky team. They were so fast up and down the court. When they got a defensive rebound John Wall was halfway up the court waiting for the ball which they always got to him. Also very good inside with demarcus cousins and the 5 total underclassmen that got drafted. Big John Wall fan!
I grew up around Omaha and was a Creighton fan before I became an ISU fan, so the Jays are still my #2 team (but I don't care as much now that Altman is gone and McD is there). I usually cheer for both Drake and UNI as well to support the in-state teams. The only conference opponent in basketball that I can stand to cheer for is Oklahoma State. I'd love to go to a game at Gallagher-Iba someday.
As for other major conferences, I'm cheering for Oregon in the Pac10 now that Altman is there. I cheer for Vandy in the SEC, mostly because I love their strange court set-up. I don't really care about the Big 10, but I've started to like Illinois. I always love watching any Big East game, and Louisville is probably my favorite team from that conference.
My other favorite team is Duke.
I guess you can call me a bandwagon jumper, but I have like them since about the mid 80's when Danny Ferry was playing. I love the atmosphere inside Cameron, and think that Coach K has a great mind for leadership.
I always cheer for the Mo Valley teams as long as they don't play ISU. I'm the type who can't watch a game without rooting for someone, usually its the underdog. So teams like Gonzaga,UNI,Butler, or any non bcs schools that have made recent tourney runs usually get my support.
Any team that plays Iowa.
Wisconsin- Bo Ryan baby
What's with all the Illinois love? Gag!! The only thing I like about Illinois is that's where the Bears got their uniform colors.
AFA as other teams are concerned, I was a Drake fan as a child. Then a Houston fan in the early 80's with Phi Slamma Jamma. UNLV was fun to watch in the 90's, but now its the Aggies.
