Game 9- 7th Place Game

Cherry, Bekaert & Holland 94 – Holiday Inn Portsmouth 80

In the toilet-bowl game, CB&H were finally able to get into the win column. Being down by 6, they caught fire in the second half, and cruised to an easy victory against the winless Holiday Inn Portsmouth team.

The Jump. That is what GM's expect from their sophomore studs. As rookies, they are given the benefit of the doubt. It's the first time through everything. The travel, the money, the expectations, the League. By their second year, they are expected to produce. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the players who successfully made The Jump this season.

Game 6- Consolation Game

Norfolk Sports Club 89 - Cherry, Bekaert & Holland 88

Two losing teams from the previous day met in the early matchup. A fairly exciting game that went down the wire, where Chris Lofton hit a tough 3 point shot to give his squad a 1 point victory.

While Saturday's Final Four match ups didn't live up to the billing with a dream-scenario four number one seeds turning into two blow outs, there's still hope that Monday night's match up between Memphis and Kansas can have the excitement to make up for it. Here are the prospects that are rising and falling from Saturday's semifinal games in San Antonio.

Final Four Preview

I’m glad it came down to this.

Maybe I am in the minority, but I am happy Davidson didn’t beat Kansas. I was rooting for UCLA to come back against Texas A&M.

Nothing pleases me more than the guarantee that the best team in college basketball will be selected from the four best teams in college basketball. Cinderellas are great and all – for two weekends. After that, it’s time to define a champion, and, in doing so, define a season.
