ncaa tournament thread

figured i would start one so we could talk about all the action going on without having to create new ones for every game.

Omar Samhan is killing Richmond down low. He had to sit out a while in the first half with 3 fouls, but with 15 minutes remaining he already has like 25 points and is getting whatever he wants and showing great patience.

Samhan is a BIG body...He's

Samhan is a BIG body...He's slow, but he knows how to use his frame. Richmond needs to make the comeback lol. I picked them in this one.

Kansas State is KILLING...Luis Colion is TERRIBLE. Pullen and Clemente are too much for North Texas' guards. Also, too much size. Pullen got hurt about 5 mins back, fell on his tailbone...Hope the pain doesn't last too long.

UTEP and Butler is underway.

richmond does not look good

richmond does not look good at all. Smahan has outrebounded their entire team. The spiders don't do anything special and have zero interior play. The Gaels will be in trouble too. Their guards are not quick on either end of the court. They should get by Richmond today, but if they play a team with size and or quick gaurds that can attack samhan and get him in foul trouble, they will be in trouble.

i wish i was watching utep

i wish i was watching utep vs butler. I guess they figure since saint marrys is a california team, they will show them here. Too bad because that utep game was one i was most looking forward to. I like butler in it.

How about them Racers? Wish

How about them Racers? Wish I wasn't at work, stuck watching ESPN scoreboard and refreshing the page every 5 minutes. I'm debating whether to wait the Richmond-St.Marys' game out, or go ahead and drive home. Toughest decision I have been faced with all day.

it's 15 and growing for saint marys, you could probably go ahead and drive home. Yet another bad pick by me, at least i got KState correct.

what do you guys think about

what do you guys think about the big east so far? Seton Hall got blwon out in the nit. UConn barely won by 2 in the NIT. Notre Dame lost today. Villanova needed a comeback to win by 3 in overtime vs robert morris. Is the best conference in america looking a little overrated, or is too early for that?

I always said the Big East

I always said the Big East was the deepest conference, which I think they are partly because they have like 20 teams in the conference. I think the Big 12 has the better teams though, at the top. The Big 12 is top-heavy, but the Big East has more good teams.

In what league would Gordon

In what league would Gordon Hayward be the best draft prospect in the UTEP-Butler game? I'm not sure he starts at UTEP. This is the second straight tourney where he gets matched up against an athletic team and looks incredibly pedestrian.

Finally, someone who doesn't

Finally, someone who doesn't think Hayward is that good. Everyone should know by now that I think Gordon Hayward is a poor mans version of Adam Morrison. Yes, that bad.

UTEP is playing very

UTEP is playing very uninspired D right now against Butler, and are only up by 1 right now with less than 16 mins. They have a bunch of guys that feel like they can win by just showing up. They better step it up, they should be up by at least 7 or 8. They have advantages all over the court, they are just too selfish right now..

Im wondering what you guys

Im wondering what you guys think of Karon Abraham from Robert Morris.

Hes a freshman and had 23 points against Villanova.
He could shoot the ball and drive.

He is way too small to have an NBA career, but Im wondering if anyone thinks he can develop into a really good college player who could lead Robert Morris to some more tournaments and higher seeds than 15.

Im just wondering your thoughts cause he impressed me

I still think they will be SUPER good next year though..

finally someone makes me look smart, thanks butler. I told tezo the other day that butler will out execute utep and shelvin mack will match culpeppers production. That almost makes up for puttin notre dame in the elite 8.

You had Notre Dame getting to the Elite 8?? Man...That bracket is messed up worse than mine would've been had Villanova lost lol.

Northern Iowa vs. UNLV is about to be underway...This is a game I had a fairly tough time deciding on, but I like Northern Iowa more.

knicksfan, don't get me

knicksfan, don't get me wrong. I was pulling for Old Dominion. Im all 4 the little guys. How about harangody only having 2 points until that last second meaningless tip in gave him 4. Fans call him out for the team being better without him then he stinks in the first round. Tough way to end what was an amazing college career. I honestly feel bad for him.

Yea I changed the UTEP game.

Yea I changed the UTEP game. I had them getting beat in the 2nd round against Murray St. Now I'm going to have an extra loss on my bracket. Damn.

Kentucky v. ETSU is on. John Wall is falling asleep ON THE BALL on defense, gave up 6 of Kentucky's 10 pts.. Kentucky up by 2 with 15 mins in the 1st half, but I think they should spread. They're up despite not playing all that great. Patterson is playing like a man amongst boys...Very strong out there. Cousions has made some nice passes.

UNLV up by 2 vs. Northern Iowa. Come on guys..

Really G'Town? Really? Armon

Really G'Town? Really? Armon Bassett is shooting well. I liked his stroke when he was at Indiana. But I don't need G'Town losing right now...I had them going kinda far.

Kentucky is stretching like everyone knew they would.

Northern Iowa is losing, and they let UNLV dictate more than they would've liked. If they keep it half-court, they should win. UNLV has some holes in it's half-court D and they aren't that efficient.

Washington up on Marquette...I'll watch that one.
