Wanted to have a dumping ground for various games of interest for this week's tourneys.

At the moment I'm watching Pitt destroy BCU - 56-30. Barring a total near-impossible collapse, they get Cuse next. Xavier Johnson is aiming to be the next Kemba!

7 years ago, this was the best week of the year.
Very excited to watch ACC and AAC tournaments though. ACC will be very interesting, per usual.

Northeastern punches a ticket to the dance. Nice win over a good Hofstra team with an NBA guard. I am thinking #13 seed possibility. Could be #14 with any bias against the MM.

Those NIT bubble teams lost another at-large spot with that game. I think they're probably on the 13 line.

Gonzaga looks like a mess right now. This could get interesting if St. Mary's can get to halftime with the lead.

Northeastern/Hofstra was a very good game. Lots of talent in that game between Vasa and JWF.

I've always liked Gonzaga, but I'm always leery in March of those teams that are frontcourt-heavy like the Zags. I can't see guys like Perkins and Norvell putting the team on their shoulders.

Vance just went on an 11-0 run to put UNM up 2 on Wyoming.

Providence-Villanova tomorrow night should be fun.

Will be interesting to see what St. John's does tonight - they lose and probably head to the NIT.

Syracuse against Pitt and no Tyus Battle - Jalen Carey should get a lot of run tonight.

Cuse sucks, without Battle their offense should be beyond abysmal

Call me nuts, but I think Pittsburgh has a chance at the upset. Their two guards have really improved the past couple weeks and Wilson-Frame can drop threes. Without Battle, not really sure how good Cuse's offense is.

wilson-frame with 6- 3"s in the half. LOL
I said earlier I thought Pitt had a chance. But if you'd told me that Johnson and McGowens were held to a combined two points at halftime, I'd expect Pitt to be down by 20, not up by 6.

During the Louisville/Notre Dame game the announcers gave a small notch to UConn when Durham and Enoch were guarding each other at one moment. They basically said something along the lines of “former Uconn on former Uconn here” and discussing where UConn would be if we still had them because of our front court issues.

Xavier Johnson needs a Plan B. Going up against Chukwu for layups certainly isn't working.
