After an early drubbing, straight chalk makes an impressive rebound!

We may not be the best at picking them but at least we didn't do this!

"Oh noooooo.

Of the more than three million NCAA Tournament brackets entered on Yahoo, no oneís has more points than James Kikiís. He nailed some early upsets. He had seven of the Elite Eight teams correct. He has a perfect Final Four. He is tied with two other people for first overall, just three games away from a $50,000 grand prize. James Kiki will not win. Here is his bracket. He forgot to pick a national champion."

But holy cow were 'Nova good tonight
the walk-ons - WALK-ONS! - got 2-1/2 minutes of game time in the national semifinal

The likelihood of anyone shooting 71% in a NCAA Finals is highly unlikely.  If either team does - it is probably lights out.
Oklahoma shot a miserable 32% from the field.  UNC pounds the ball inside, so shooting that poor would be highly unusual for that type of squad.

UNC shot a "mere" 52% from the field and 82% from the free throw line. 

Biggest loss UNC has had for the year is 6 points.

Congrats, airboy!  I gotta pull for 'Nova to stay true to the Big East roots, but, it wouldn't make me sad if the Tar Heels won either.

My wife and I pulled for the Wolfpack back in their last NCAA Championship Appearance in 1983.  We were even UNC undergrads at the time.  Don't turn into a Dookie.

The only time I supported Duke was against Nifong

On a completely different but similar note, I watched the women/ladies NIT Championship game the other night. Florida Gulf Coast Univ. which is about 45 miles from my home, vs South Dakota State. FGCU Got beat but it was close. But the thing that amazed me, and I don't want this to sound prejudiced in any way, South Dakota didn't have a single black girl on their team. Even on their bench. I know there's probably not a lot of African-Americans in South Dakota but I never would have thought that it wouldn't even matter to anybody. Maybe the young people are headed for a better world.  O0

That final shot is going down in NCAA history.  Wow.

Sorry, Airboy - you win the bracket challenge, at least :)

I'll unpin this tomorrow and we'll count down to next year.
