Thursdays NCAA recap

  • Kansas State and USC wasn’t as good as people thought it was going to be. Kansas State won because it had the best player on the court.
  • The win for the Dukies is really a loss, but all that matters in the NCAA tournament is the fact that they came out on top. I remember in the past when Duke was almost a lock for a sweet 16. Now, they are far from it.
  • Xavier survived a scare from Georgia as did a lot of people who had Xavier advancing far in their bracket. Georgia just ran out of gas in the end and Xavier stepped up the defensive intensity. Maybe the Bulldogs finally felt the affect of the long weekend.
  • Christmas only happens in December and that showed today in the Temple, Michigan State game. Temple Star Dionte Christmas had only 3 points on 1 of 12 shooting from the field. Temple won’t win any games if he plays like that.
  • Pittsburgh is continuing its hot play from the Big East Tournament. I questioned how fresh this team would be from a 4 day run in the tough Big East and they are looking very good. The difference in this game is that Pittsburgh is just too tough inside with Blair and Young.
  • West Virginia also continued its hot play. If you don’t defend the three point line against the Mountaineers, then they will kill you and Arizona did not do that
  • Any more injury concerns about UCLA? Yea, I know they destroyed a bad team, but only giving up 29 points?
  • Baylor stinks. They made the tournament because they were a great story, not a good team
  • Joe Crawford was sensational for Kentucky, but he couldn’t do it by himself. Guards win in March and the trio of Jerel McNeal, Dominic James and Wesley Matthews was just too much for the Wildcats. I want to see a Marquette, Stanford matchup because the Cardinals are great inside and Marquette is great outside. It’s a mismatch in each teams strengths.
  • Kent State was absolutely unbearable to watch. How are you one of the best 65 teams in the nation and only capable of putting up 10 points in one half? Absolutely awful.
  • My bad on the Notre Dame upset call.
  • Wisconsin put up 71 points? HOW?!
