#547115 In the ACC tournament last night, the Hokies lost a 21-point second half lead and lost to Notre Dame, 71-65. :shock:

#547117 Very bad performance on both ends of floor by VT, and bad coaching.

And after further review, ND had some help from the 3 guys in striped shirts.

Yeah I was watching that game. Tech fell in love with the 3 ball in the first half and had 0 offensive flow in the second. It was painful to watch Reminded me of how WVU season has gone!

Sitting in a Waffle House for lunch outside Knoxville, TN — and this made me snort coffee through my nose. Well done!

PS - of course I know MBB has halved and not quarters. But my game does it the right way. Haha

#547152 Louisville played well for about 3/4 of game. UVA is just. That. Good.

Notre Dame squarely on bubble. Boy, they’re such a different team when Wells is healthy. There’s talk every year about how committee handles a team that’s injured coming into tournament. Seems rare that we discuss what to do with a team who was w/o key player much of season, but is healthy again.

UNC started out like chumps, but finished strong. Even as a Tar Heel fan, I find it hard to believe they’re good enough to stay on the 2-line. Maybe they surprise me and earn it today and tomorrow. But I still would bet they lose early-ish in tourney. Committee will still give them enough respect they win first 1-2 games, but a tough aggressive team like a West Virginia or an AAU urn or a Michigan State - who they could meet in Sweet 16, will reveal their weaknesses, I believe.

Big XII going chalk yesterday is fun. That WVU/TT rubber match is going to be an all-out war tonight. Preparing for WVU in one day on no rest cannot be fun.

Big East is a freaking fun tourney to watch. Nova is LOADED, but I like Providence. Dude with great hair can flat out COACH! And you can tell his players LOVE him.

How about MTSU losing in CUSA?! I think the fact they lost yesterday to lowly Southern Miss, combined with the fact their coach went all NFL coaches and benched his starters in last game of season which seemingly didn’t matter, makes this team miss out. A loss yesterday only, and I think they would stay. I hope committee makes them pay, just to see MTSU fan base go nuts on coach for doing that in regular season.

Today will be fun! Unfortunately Imwont be anywhere near a TV for most of it, because I’ll be watching Tennessee girls basketball all day.

We’ve been Ed Cooley fans for awhile now. We got to see Providence play in the first round a couple of years ago. Dude can flat out coach. He does more with less than anyone in the Country. Thinks outside the box. Loves his players and his players absolutely love him. I’d love to see him get a ‘Big Time’ job but he seems to like Providence. But someone needs to get that man a raise!!

By olldflame
#547490 It's not horseshoes or hand grenades, but we came so close to beating that UNCG team as well as Houston, who are a 6 seed. Looking forward to seeing how GA State, the NCAA tournament team we actually BEAT does against Cincinnati in a 2/15 game tomorrow.

While I would like to say I think we could have given Nova a better game than Radford did today, the fact is, we had 3 chances to beat them this year and lost all 3 times, so we will never know. Personally, I am not a fan of Radford in general, but from what I know, their basketball team has pretty much stayed classy this year.
By ballah09
#547522 It's crazy to think we should've won the Houston and UNCG game.

Ballcoach you stay saying dumb stuff. It's all about match ups and Nova would've lit us up from 3. We would've lost by 30+ easily.

No, they didn’t.

Kansas is the weakest of the 1-seeds.

Lost a final four team in my bracket with Zona’s loss. Sean Miller practically ran off the court.

Loyola(Chicago) is UVA’s mini-me.

URI is FEISTY.

Heart breaks for VT. Love me some Buzz Williams! Foul trouble killed them, I think. Sexton (Alabama) is the REAL DEAL.

Michigan looks sloppy. Too much time off?

Looking to tomorrow: LET’s Goooooooo MOUNTAINEERS!

It’s obvious ballcoach lives in an Alternate Sports Universe.

Guess the fact that NO PAC 12 made it out of the first Round ends the ‘Should USC have made it” debate.

I don’t trust The Mountaineers. Love them to death though.

You think HCTG was wearing some old Buffalo gear last night?

This Tourney really is wide open

No. WVU won convincingly Kanate was in early foul trouble like usual but did fine. The little fellow in the post for Texas did foul out on a questionable call but may have gotten away with one on the first shot. Either way Texas should have pulled that one out

#547622 How about CBS letting the Nevada coach drop about 5 F-bombs on live TV. Doh!!

I’ve seen Bamba and Kanate a lot. Haven’t seen Marshall’s guy. Kanate is better than Bamba.

Kanate is the best I’ve seen. But I wasn’t alive for much of Wilt or Russell. It’s like he’s truly playing volleyball out there on defense. It’s fun to watch. The Texas fellow isn’t bad. But he’s better than the kid on West Virgina’s jV team Play Basketball Play Basketball

You said ‘Best’ not ‘Leading’ shot blocker. Would you let that verbal slip pass in Quiz Bowl? I think not!!! If I played in the Midget League I’d lead the World I’m blocked shots. Doesn’t make me the best!
