DukeWhat a boring great weekend of March Madness! The games were so poorly played exciting! Man, there were so many favorites Cinderellas making deep runs in the tourney!

 

2007 NCAA Tournament: All-Second Round Team

March 19th, 2007
Ohio St

Best Performance: Ron Lewis, Ohio State

In the best game of the Tournament so far, there were plenty of great performances to choose from, particularly from two Buckeyes who willed their team to an improbable victory. Neither of them was named Greg Oden.

Not that Oden, who ended up with his umpteenth double-double, had an off night. But after fouling out with his team down nine and less than three minutes to play, it was up to Oden’s teammates to step it up and save their season. You probably know the rest.

Daily Dribble: NCAA Tournament Day Three

North Carolina

- A lot of talk the first two days about the lack of upsets and the lack of excitement.. but I think today's 3 overtime games more than made up for it.

- Mike Conley's 11 points might have owned overtime, but Ron Lewis owned the game. When things broke down for Ohio State, he pretty much got them to overtime by himself.

Countdown to Selection Sunday can legitimately be made in hours at this point. Less than a week to the start of the tournament. Less than a few months before we start previewing the 2007-08 season..

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: How does Tommy Amaker still have his job? Michigan's loss to Ohio State today means they'll be back in the NIT once again. Maybe they should just call it the Michigan Invitational Tournament at this point..

NBA general managers don’t see college superstars the way most people do. GM’s see them as potential soul mates. Or, more aptly, potential soul team-mates.
