NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Regional Quarter Finals, Day 2

We could call Friday “Giant Slayer Day”, at least on the Men’s side of the Tournament. In addition to the big one, the crushing defeat of Virginia (picked by many as the top seed to win the whole thing) by University of Maryland, Baltimore College, a historically Black College known more for turning out Physicians, …

NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Regional Quarter Finals, Day 1

Friday, Day 1 of the Round of 64, was not exactly overpopulated with upsets. Virginia, Minnesota, and Villanova, that’s it. Otherwise pretty much what you would expect. Tennessee got a Century, good for them. Doesn’t look quite so impressive now, does it? Unfortunately Lady’s Basketball does not have the financial support and development it deserves …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Regional Quarter Finals

Sorry. Distracted. 140 – 52. Tournament Record (121, Men’s or Women’s) shattered. Not 3:1. Not 149+ (most points ever, Men or Women). Room for improvement. A-. I don’t think there’s a team on the Men’s side who can hang with them if they swapped today. Even less so if they had a few months to …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 2, Round of 64, Evening

Let me say I’m pleased as punch that the Orangemen played their way into the big dance. I haven’t made many predictions today (they’re mostly wishes anyway) but I’m highly gratified when they make me seem not quite such an idiot as I actually am. Wednesday’s Results Seed Team Record Score Seed Team Record Score …

NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Evening

Once again the Women get snubbed by having only the one Network (ESPN) and even only one Channel (ESPN 2), the second best one (though some would argue who wants to watch Sports Center 24/7 and I would be forced to agree) at that. It’s not like Disney doesn’t have dozens of Channels on your …

NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Afternoon

Look, the Women’s game is just superior if you care about Basketball at all. Sure UConn is dominant and part of it is that they play from the Tip straight through because of their conditioning but it’s not like they’re bullies in the Paint- this is not Hockey. They rebound with authority at both ends …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Evening

The winners of the 2 Play In games that took place Tuesday are appearing tonight. It’s hard to call any of the Play In games upsets because they’re between 2 identical seeds but normally teams that win in an upset are marked with an Asterisk (*). Teams are presented higher seed to the left, the …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Afternoon

Gaaaaaaaaaaaah! Ok, this installment is complete. It takes you through 6:45 pm. None of the winning teams that played Tuesday night are appearing until the evening so the results are not relevant. Do I have some favorites? Sure. Rhode Island because they’re Rhode Island and I live in Connecticut, plus Oklahoma. Wright State because they’re …
