    Rhetoric question for O Wise Ones…

    When the heavy underdog wins on a shot at the buzzer that’s an ‘upset’…
    But IF you, beat them in every column on the box score, totally destroy a team’s will to win and win going away by 20….

    How is that legitimately called an ‘upset’ ?

    Tony did handle the loss with class, and I’d expect nothing less from him. He is a very principled man. The better team won, last night.

    If the better team won what does that say about the glorified #1 in the tourney.

    There is absolutely no denying that UVa was the best team in college basketball this season. So what it says, literally, is that anybody can beat anybody on a given night. Nobody disputes UVa wasn’t the overall number 1. What they did was incredible.

    I’ve seen a zillion folks pick Michigan State to win it all. They looked terrible against Bucknell.

    KU struggled with Penn for a while. Gonzaga struggles with UNCG. Texas Tech struggles with SFA. Auburn struggled with Charleston. Arizona loses. Miami loses. Wichita loses.

    Point being – if you don’t bring it, you are going home. And you might even go home if you do. So much parity right now in college basketball.

    If I could re-pick, seeing what we’ve seen so far, I’d go all in on Nova. Easy road to the Final Four.

    Yeah Nova looks like your best bet.. Cheats are up there too, I really believe they have a pretty easy path.

    I ran Nova all the way out to win.
    Gave UVa two wins.

    …But put State in the Elite 8.
    Much alive, through 3:40 Saturday, that is.

    Rick Barnes looked like a deer in headlights. Loyola head fakes made the vol defenders look like beagles chasing a rabbit.

    ^Yep…

    Cougars spent too much time talking to each other and the refs in the second half…
    A bit un-rattling…

    Still a great game…

    GO LADY PACK!

    Sans Loyola-Chocago, the favorites hold serve.

    Crushing loss for the Coogs. Sorry, Tex.

    I’m really liking UMBC today. You guys are aware a #16 has never lost in the round of 32, right?!
