NCAA Tournament 2012 Thread

I wanted to make one of these earlier but I got busy doing other things. Kinda thought it would be cool to make a post for everything that has to do with the tournament, AKA the most exciting part of the college basketball season. Any thoughts about what has already happened/is happening? BTW, glad KState pulled out the win! :). And I heard the refs in the Cuse v. UNCA game were terrible.

Some semi- current news

UK dominating WKU early. Vandy holds off a late run from Harvard. Casper Ware sucked in the loss to New Mexico.

EDIT: WKU went a 7-2 run, so my first statement is false.

I think I had Vandy losing to Harvard. :(. They picked a good time to actually win a tournament game. Losers. But at the same time, Im glad Vandy is striding. They have had one of the most talented core group of players in the country for the past 2 years and they are finally playing like it to end the season out.

Casper Ware was a huge dissapointment. He is just a chucker, nothing more than that.

I picked Harvard over Vandy

I picked Harvard over Vandy too. Still pretty upset about the 'Cuse refs as well, cost UNCA so bad.

I never really liked Ware as

I never really liked Ware as a prospect. He's been inefficient all year. He's a scorer and he's a good athlete, but I tend to think he's a chucker and he can shoot a team out of games just as much as he can keep them in against quality teams.

Wisconsin looked great today.

Wisconsin looked great today. It was vs Montana but if theyre hitting their threes then theyre tough to beat (over 50% today). Jordan Taylor finally looking like the All American he was supposed to. Not sure how they handle Ezili next round though.

Jae Crowder with another great game.. 25 pts 16 reb 4 ast 4 stl 1 to.. Such a relentless player, he'll be in the NBA next year.

Syracuse deserved to lose. Any UNCA fans on here?? Id like to know their thoughts on the game.

Looking forward to Witchita-VCU, ISU-Conn tonight and hopefully at least one upset, not even a 9 over an 8 yet!

WVU and Gonzaga up now! I

WVU and Gonzaga up now! I picked WVU in this one, I dont know if the Zags have the workhorses to go to war with WVU who is one of the most physical teams in the nation. Whoever gets to 65 first will win though, Im thinking. WVU does go on long scoring droughts, especially when Kilicia (sp?) is out of the game.

Truck Bryant is TERRIBLE.

Truck Bryant is TERRIBLE. He's a combo guard who can't shoot very well, takes bad shots, isn't a good playmaker, and he isn't an athlete either.

Im 0-1 in upsets so far with LBSU hopefully VCU can help the cause. That top right portion of the bracket is looking suspect right now with Cuse and Vandy fending off upsets and KSt didnt look that good against Southern Miss

Not a single soul on WVU's roster can create their own shot. They are going to lose this game.

This has not been the best

This has not been the best start to the ncaa tourney. No upsets, no buzzer beaters and really only a few close games. I guess it can only get better from here!

anthony jones that is......................

jk, he had no basket but he's rebounding pretty good, and displayed nice handles when he pushed the break on that 1 play, even though he got called for the charge. pierre jackson going at it, he gonna make a name for himself in the tourney like i said

I swear I think Anthony Jones

I swear I think Anthony Jones is the biggest sleeper prospect out there. He's a 6'11 SF with a good 3-point shot and nice athleticism and impressive length. He's just not aggressive and he's skinny. He's an oversized SF with intriguing skills. He lost his spot to Quincy Miller as a Sr. this year, and he's underachieved for someone with his tools because of fluctuating intensity throughout his career, so he has questions. But he's real intriguing.
