The mighty have fallen- U of Kentucky will accept NIT Bid if offered



The last time the school played in that tournament was 30 years ago. From ESPN- The three letters Kentucky fans would rather spit than say may soon be coming to fruition.

Former Texas Western head coach Don Haskins dead at 78



He took the school now known as Texas El Paso to an improbable major championship in 1966. Forty years later a movie, 'Glory Road', was made about Haskins and his team. The AP obituary is below the fold. RIP Coach.... [Full Story]

And the Champion is Kansas



In the first five minutes of the second half we saw four lead changes. The fight was on. At this point both teams are sucking from the field. Kansas has went to a Box-And-One defense that is actually favoring Memphis and Memphis refuses to leave the man on man leaving... [Full Story]

Mediocre Game So Far



Again, reporting live from San Antonio: With 3:50 left in the first half we have a tie score at 28-28. Kansas is hitting 60% against the Tiger's 42% from the field. Both teams are struggling from the stripe with Kansas going 1-4 and Memphis 3-8. So far, it's a sloppy... [Full Story]

That was a Hell of a Game!



Again, reporting live from San Antonio: Kansas came out on fire and at the ten minute mark in the first half was dominating with a 21 point lead. At that point Kansas was hitting 76% to NC's 30%. Add to that Carolina's zero % from the stripe and a huge... [Full Story]

Memphis Smokes UCLA



Reporting live from San Antonio, I can tell you that was a beat down of historical proportions in the second half. Memphis went into the half with a three point lead but the second half separated the hype from the talent. Memphis managed to totally shut down UCLA's phenom Darren... [Full Story]

Cal hires Ex-Stanford coach Mike Montgomery

Sweet 16: The East is Settled



The East was a perfect win for the seeding committee. We have the top four seeds colliding (the only part of my bracket that is healthy). Other than a scare to Tennessee by Butler, the others have arrived here in fairly dominating fashion. North Carolina has posted a margin of... [Full Story]

Sweet 16: The Midwest is Settled



The Midwest was another regional that experienced a couple of interlopers into the Sweet 16 that were likely not on too many brackets. Honestly, who had Davidson and Villanova in the Sweet 16? So, how did this happen and what does it mean for future games? Villanova upset Clemson and... [Full Story]

Sweet 16: The South is Settled



The South Regional played out pretty much as expected. We ended up with the Number one, two, three and five seeds in the Sweet 16. How they got here however might be an indicator to future performances. Michigan State cruised through the first round and beat Pitt by 11 in... [Full Story]

Sweet 16: The West is Settled



The West offered its share of drama but the Sweet 16 teams are finally locked in. UCLA and Xavier shouldn't surprise anyone but who expected Western Kentucky and West Virginia? West Virginia will no-doubt pull the patented "Bob Huggins choke" against a superior team in Xavier; so I guess that... [Full Story]

Finally an Upset in the South?



Not really. A five beating a four is hardly a shocker. The Stanford victory over Marquette was some fun basketball to watch unless you were Stanford Coach Trent Johnson. The offense for the Cardinal was hitting on all cylinders but the defense was atrocious and almost cost them the game... [Full Story]

More Drama in the West



The West Region has been and continues to be a source of intrigue in this tournament. Duke fell to seven seed West Virginia. This actually wasn't a big surprise given how Duke has played in this tournament. They apparently left their three-point shot at home. Xavier looked very solid against... [Full Story]

The South Region Quietly Moves on



Of all of the madness from yesterday, the South regional has hardly been mentioned. That's because the higher seeded team has won every game. While all of press is about stories like West Virginia, Siena, San Diego, etc..., the South is marching on. I know that anything can happen but... [Full Story]

The Midwest Region is a Total Mess



The higher seeded team in all four games on Friday played poorly. Yeah, that crumpled piece of paper you saw lofting across my office being chased by a stream of cursing was my bracket. Each of these games warrants a closer look but I think the one that stands out... [Full Story]

East Regional Team to Watch



Butler took care of business against South Alabama 81-61. This was a seven seed beating a ten seed so no big deal, right? They are also from less than premier conferences, so again, no big deal right? That's why I'm here sports fans. This is a big deal and I'll... [Full Story]

West Region Wrecks Everybody's Brackets



Well, at least wrecks most West Regionals for the Sweet 16 picks. Western Kentucky stunned Drake on a last moment shot in overtime. Like that wasn't bad enough, just a couple of hours later San Diego toppled UConn. The great story here is that either a 12 or a 13... [Full Story]
