College basketball update

This year college basketball has been very interesting and exciting with lots of huge upsets from the best teams around the nation.

On November 25, Virginia Tech came off with a big win against Michigan St., who was ranked #3 at the time, beating them 71 to 66. This caused Michigan St.’s ranking to fall to #11.  

The rest of the top five, as of December 5th, are: #1: Louisville, #2: Kansas, #3: Maryland, #4: Michigan, #5: Virginia.

Ohio St and Arizona are making big pushes to try to get in the top 5 with both teams going undefeated on the season right now.

Oregon basketball had a big game when they faced Seton Hall, who was ranked #13 at the time. Oregon edged them by just 2 points. With no arguments, Oregon’s, Myles Powell, is probably an NBA top future draft pick. He is averaging 22.6 points per game this year as a senior.  

Also, another great game saw an improving Florida St. team go up against Tennessee, who was ranked #17 at the time, and who looked like a powerhouse in the SEC Conference. Florida St. won by 3 points in a very closely contested game.

Michigan beat North Carolina and Gonzaga, by big margins, to stay undefeated this season 7-0, but they lost a big game against Louisville.

While Memphis basketball been struggling to get wins easily, this might not be for long, after James Wisman, a projected 1st round pick, should be coming back to play after he had to sit for 12 games and pay a hefty fine after receiving money in high school.

Unranked DePaul hasn’t been getting put on notice after an 9-0 start to the season with a big win over a highly favored Iowa basketball program.

In women’s basketball, Louisville also came up with a big win over number Michigan in a good early March Madness matchup.

Stanford is the new #1 team in the country, for women’s basketball, with pulling off some big victivites over the weekend.

Next week, college basketball for the women’s and men’s teams should be very exciting and nail biting with conference play getting closer. Teams should be ready to play their rivals.

Should you get Disney+?

I think it was no secret when Disney came out with Disney+ on November 12, 2019. But, though it sounds packed with an endless amount of shows and movies, should you get it?

First of all, Disney+ is a streaming service recently launched by Disney. It has a variety of shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. It is packed with hours of classic Disney movies and series from many years ago, as well as newer content. Specifically, it has about 500 movies and 7,500 TV shows. 

To be fair, Disney has done a really nice job at making Disney+ affordable for many people. At $7 per month or $70 per year, it’s less expensive than Netflix’s cheapest option at $9 per month. Also, unlike Netflix, they do not charge extra money for quality changes. 

Personally, one of my favorite benefits of Disney+ is its ability to download. All of the shows on Disney’s streaming service have a small button that you can click that allows you to download them. This means that for road trips or vacations where there may not be internet or a bad connection to WiFi, you could just download what you’d like to watch on the app and have it available any time, anywhere. 

Disney+ will also be adding content as it continues to be used. Many newer shows will also appear after their appearances in the theater and as a home-video, including movies like the realistic version of Disney’s The Lion King.

There is a good chance that there is something you will enjoy watching on there. After all, it was announced they reached over 10 million people that have already subscribed. 

So, in the end, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in the content that Disney produces. If you subscribe and pay the monthly fee, you can cancel at any time. If you don’t know whether or not you should, there is a seven day free trial that might help you to make up your mind.
