Round 3, GO:
Louisville (1) > Tennessee (4) :thumbup: Stomped 'em.
N.C. State (1) > Notre Dame (5) Yes, 66-63!
5' 4" Sr G Raina Perez is the heroine at the end - steal, 2/3 court dribble and a layup to take the lead, defensive rebound and 2 foul shots to ice it. N.C. State to the Elite 8 for only the 2nd time ever, last in 1998.

Connecticut (2) > Indiana (3) :thumbup: Stomped 'em.
16 Elite 8s in a row. Nice, but now go NC State!
3-0 Yippie.
Also, Michigan (3) barely beat South Dakota (10). :yawn:

Three #1s and a #2 says something for the seeders.

Final 4, GO:
Stanford (1) > Connecticut (2)
Louisville (1) > South Carolina (1)

Champ preference, descending order:

Stanford (1)
Louisville (1)
Connecticut (2)
South Carolina (1)

Ordering them by increasing numbers of letters is purely accidental. :crazy:

I try to be tolerant, but a bunch of 'Cocks playing for the Women's Championship is going too far. Call me a traditionalist, but the winning women should be dogs.

UConn broke its recent semifinal jinx this year, but it had never been beaten in the final before. Amazing.

May not last, but:

Halftime
8 Loyola Chicago 33
1 Illinois 24
Illinois has never led and the last tie was 2-2.
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... =401310888

:shock:
Damn.

Go Sister Jean.
Loyola won this 2021 MM 2nd round game :clap: , then lost to 12 Oregon State in the Sweet 16.
In 2022 10 Loyola lost to 7 Ohio State in the 1st Round. :(

Sister Jean turned 103 yesterday! Her mind still seems sharp and she attributes her longevity to good food, "hopefully" good prayer and hanging out with youth.

Idle thought - Do booths selling jerseys and other gear inside basketball tournament venues get renamed 'Merch Madness'?

Aha, still might be happening in the tourney, but I'm not original: Link
