March 25th, 2007
Ohio St

Best Performance: Tajuan Porter, Oregon

Make all the short jokes you want. Call him things like “diminutive” or “pint-sized” and write stories implying his 5 foot 6 inch, 160 pound (if that) frame is somehow a huge disadvantage.

Just don’t say it to UNLV.

Friday Sweet Sixteen Review: No Upsets Again

March 24th, 2007

The familiar theme of the tournament continued tonight with the underdogs taking the early lead, followed by the favorites coming back to earn the victory. It happened (again) with Florida and continued throughout the evening with Georgetown and North Carolina overcoming double-digit deficits.

- Lets be honest, you've been disappointed with Greg Oden's play. He's been less future hall of famer.. and more Dikembe Mutombo on an off night..

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!

 

Besides Saturday, pretty much a ho-hum weekend

March 20th, 2007

Well, my bracket was officially done for at about 1:50 PST on Friday, when Winthrop did waht many expected them to do and beat Notre Dame. I had the Irish in the Elite 8, thinking that the good effort against Georgetown combined with the fact that not too many besides you-know-who on ESPN had them winning that game. I was wrong. Some other flame-outs from my bracket:

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.

- Amazingly, all of this year's Sweet Sixteen teams came into last week within the Top 22 of the CHN Top 50. The "lowest" ranked team was Tennessee at #22. In the AP and Coaches Poll, they were all within the Top 34.
