Sounds like minor (but maybe valid) complaints that went unaddressed until somebody got thoroughly pissed. Never works to keep hoping complaints will just go away.

... Go Iowa ...
:lol: 85-53 Baylor. Go Ducks!
2 OR, first time ever in the Final 4 - 67, 1 overall seed Baylor - 72, and the game was really even closer than that. Darn, but good on the Ducks for their run.

... Perennial champ UConn plays tonight's perennial contenders 1 Notre Dame - 2 Stanford winner on Fri. Go Stanford, then either Stanford or Notre Dame in the semi.
Oh well, go Notre Dame!
Another good game - 2 UConn, 12th straight Final 4 appearance - 76, reigning champ 1 Notre Dame - 81.

Go Notre Dame, Catholics rule, Baptists drool!

Today is the day. Of course Bryce and Jared both came down with whatever it was that the NC guy had. Both were better and practiced yesterday, but weren't 100%.
Bruce says that they will be fine today.

Wow, 31-28 Auburn at the half, provisional congrats. I won't be mad if Auburn wins one or both games. I will be mad if MSU wins one or both games.

Edit: Oh man, epic comeback, epic collapse! Sorry.

Go VA (the 'good enough' team) vs TT or MSU.

Crap, the girl gymnast gropers of MSU win :( . VA is the only #1 left. My last chance to get $5 back dies :( .

Go VA > TT.
:happy-cheerleaderkid:

As they've been doing all tourney, TT's D was smothering. MSU held to 51 points on 32%, both season lows! I want VA and don't know what Vegas will say, but I would bet on TT straight up.

Edit: Early Vegas says VA -1. Won't surprise me if it flips.

27% of us put VA in the Final, 8% to win it. No one put TT in the Final.

Not sure what it does for Avenatti, but this shit just got real for a bunch of folks:

Michael Avenatti releases documents alleging Nike paid families of top college basketball recruits

Deandre Ayton - Arizona
Avenatti also suggested on Twitter he had proof Nike was paying Shaondra Sampson, the mother of Zion Williamson, for “consulting services” while Zion was still in high school. The payments, according to Avenatti, came through Nike’s vendor portal and began in 2016. (Duke)
North Carolina
Bol Bol - Oregon
Brandon McCoy - UNLV

More to come.

He did. But hard to believe he missed the huge double dribble that allowed them the shot.

Foul calls are sometimes judgment calls and some games are called close and others more of a let them play, but double dribbles are always called.


That said, Auburn did great. Played great, acted great, first ever final four and only lost by one.

I couldn't have asked for more.

If you enter "virginia" in YT's search box, "virginia double dribble" pops up as one of the top search terms, 2nd only to "virginia vs auburn".

    After all, it was another "should have won easily game" and the probable bad call went our way that helped us to the playoffs.

    Texas Tech was in the Elite Eight for the first time in program history, let alone the Final.
    1 year after becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed - U of MD Baltimore County, homeboys! - VA is in its 1st Final.
    Cool, dynasties suck

    It was unranked until beating TN for the 1st time on 3/9!

    Florida

    Worst officiated game of the season. Plenty of bad calls both ways but the last one would have been 3 foul shots for Florida, but the call went to favor Auburn for a 3 point win.
