  • Just thought I would start a thread for tournament games. MSU already looking like they will roll. Butler Bucknell looking like a good game so far.

  • Lol I have MSU to the final four so it was god to see them play so well. Looking like Butler will pull out the win over Bucknell but its been a good game.

  • Pitt gets dominated by an impressive Wichita State team. SLU cruises in its game and Memphis and Saint Mary's in a tight one.

  • Pittsburgh is my only loss so far and it seems like Memphis should win so I'll be 4/5.

    Couldn't decide between New Mexico and Wisconsin reaching the final four but I chose NM. I've got Kansas, Miami, Louisville, and New Mexico in the final four. The west is going to be a fun division to watch....Gonzaga, Wisconsin, Ohio State, New Mexico, and Arizona....damn.

  • I cant STAND the Zags. Just cant. Like the Dawgs and Cougs, will root Pac-12 come tourney time (NOT BOWL TIME). But, for whatever reason loathe the Zags.

    Michigan's GOOD. I'm not just saying that because they're beating SDSU, and I picked them. They're just better than I realized.

    That was an AMAZING finish.

    If the NCAA knew what they we're doing Davidson would've been seeded higher. Kind of a shame those two GOOD teams duked it out early.

    Agreed.

    This whole tourney is wide-open. If ever a time for a mid-major to win it, its this year.

  • I have a general question about the end of games. You know when one team is down by a few buckets in the last couple minutes, they continue to foul the other team when they get the ball? And then when the team losing gets ball they shoot 3s to try to reduce the lead? Why doesnt the team thats ahead also foul the other team so they cant shoot 3s? In theory the game would just go back and forth with foul shots with the team down a large majority unable to really come back in such a short amount of time.
