    Pack wins 84-82 on two FT’s by Cat with 0.5 seconds left.

    We beat the Baptists yesterday.

    Today it’s time to take care of the Methodists.

    Tomorrow the Vatican!

    We are set up for a divinely inspired run.

    I think we hang with them for the 1st two minutes.

    Dos Equis Amber. Debating on hitting the moonshine in the freezer :)

    I would bet everything I owned on the Devils, unless they plan to rest their starters (and 6th man) for the NCAAT.

    I’d bet $100 of someone else’s money on the Pack. It just seems like a Pack thing to do (beat Duke today that is).

    We all may need some of that “shine” Mista by halftime. I just don’t see Pack getting past Dook. As much as I hate see Pack loose, I hate to see the Cheats breeze into the finals. And if we beat Dook and then perhaps ND, then just too much to ask to see a tired short bench team like the Pack beat da Cheats. It will take some Devine Intervention either way.

    Well, between Scotch and nothin’, I suppose I’d take Scotch. It’s the nearest thing to good moonshine I can find. –

    I for one am really enjoying the Big East Tourney, Live from DC.

    This match up begs for a 3-2 zone for the perimeter-oriented devil’s. I wouldn’t spring it on them until the 2nd half so k can’t attack it at the half.

    Jay Williams seems convinced we’re gonna throw a junk defense at them. Been saying it since yesterday.
    I’ll be satisfied if we throw any defense at them.

    SIGH. I didn’t put any actual moneys where my mouth was.

    Nice start, but worried about fatigue in the 2nd half.

    Too early to be second guessing bets !! If Abu stays aggressive and out of foul trouble, we beat Dook. Go Pack !

    Smart feller. Not to be confused with a fart smeller.

    WTF was that call?

    This is maybe the worst defense we’ve played all season.

    ^Maybe, but Duke has hit a couple with hands in their face.

    And I’m with Wuf, can’t believe that call for Mav’s 2nd. Was that Eades on that call? Mike’s usually better than that…

    And needless to say, the offensive performance by us is not remotely sustainable.

    Ingram is a tough matchup for Abu.

    EDIT: BTW what is this defense called? 3-2 stand-around?

    #101030

    A very soft 2-3 zone.
    Yeah, that’ll work against Duke.

    Oh hell…if Ingram is out this might get interesting.
