So ESPN was talking today about how the tournament needs to be extended further into April because they really need best of three so you're sure to get the true champion. Why? Because their Duke Zion Williamson narrative fell apart.

The tournament became the torment for them.

But what MAKES the tournament great is that is one and done.

Do quit whining, ESPN.

We like "upsets"!

So the Sweet 16 was:
1-2-3-4
1-2-3-4
1-2-3-5
1-2-3-12

If your criticism is not enough lower seeds... is that the committee's fault? 

On the other hand the final four is quite well spread

No softies left. It should be a hard fought final four.

Wasn't a criticism, just an observation.
I don't follow college ball much at all, but the lack of upsets seems rather rare.

let the kiss of death continue


my crystal ball had a team from Michigan meeting an East Coast power that started with the letter "V"  in the finals

so shall it be:

Cavs v the "300" spar Monday night.

Just checked and I had a Texas team (Houston) meeting a Michigan squad on Monday.

Seems I was a round late for that collegiate Armeggedon.

Clearly my crystal ball, and confirmed by my ouija board, Tarot vards and celestial alignment seems to indicate the winner of Sparties-TTech will be the national champ.

Good game.  Texas Tech was great.  Hats off to them.

Virginia did not face any the toughest competition this bracket. 

But they made the most of the breaks.

Deserving champ.

Didn’t watch the game but this definitely sparks joy.
