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.
