MT, despite the 9 point loss had a chance against Butler. They started the game scoreless for the first 3-4 minutes. Missed I think 6 straight shots to open the game. Had they been out to an early lead (because Butler was also terrible to start) it could have been a different game. Instead Butler lead by about 10 all night and that's how it ended.

My bracket's basically broke, but I don't seem to care.

Or at least I won't until UK blows it in the Sweet 16.

OK who had South Carolina beating Duke?

And how can anyone be a Kentucky fan anymore, it boggles my mind!! Really you never even know who plays for them anymore, it's just a bunch of mercenaries in Kentucky jerseys. Name their starting 5 from last year without looking it up.

Remember you cheer for the laundry not who is in it. And unlike previous years this team has two seniors who play important minutes, and several sophomores. There are a max of 3 one and dones this year(Fox, Monk, Bam)

and last years starters were Ulis, Briscoe, Murray, labrissiere and usually Poythress

I had Duke going to the Final Four. My East bracket is dead.

I think that Kentucky will lose to UCLA. Cal, oh wow, I could write all night about him.

Look at Enes Kantor, never played because he got money on a high school age team. Poythress is playing for Ft Wayne. At least he came back for his senior year at Kentucky after blowing his knee out. Lots of one and done guys.

Well, every team I had any interest in is out. Back to hockey. Like I ever really changed my focus. I didn't even bother to fill out brackets.

Poythress screwed himself by not going pro after his freshman season. he would have likely been drafted. Hope he works his way up from D-League.

I like basketball, I just have a hard time keeping up with it like other sports. The game is too repetitive for me really. Scoring half the time isn't exciting and the constant fouls annoy me. Regarding certain teams I can get into it, but as a sport I can keep up with it's way down there. I will say though that I was pretty into it when I lived in the city of the NBA team I like, it just doesn't have tons of staying power for me now that I'm gone.

I don't like the whole leaping from the three point line and shooting inside the arc rule. Last night both Wisconsin and Florida had buzzer beaters that should have been two point baskets.

And the result would have been the same... a one point Florida win.. just no OT

This seems like a new wrinkle basketball needs.

Jump from behind the line but float in front of it before release? 2 points.

Jump from in front of the line and fade behind it before release? 3 points.

Also, I found myself flipping back and forth between the Preds and the NCAA games last night. On at least one occasion I may have gotten confused that players were allowed to precede the ball going over the center line. I'm a basketball guy and hockey offsides is now poisoning my mind.

Did you start screaming at the ref for not catching it?

Why are teams cutting the nets down? Shouldn't that be reserved for winning the championship? This is like when baseball teams have champagne celebrations just because they won one round in the playoffs.

If UK would've won, I would've won $200 and already won my bracket pool because everyone else's was so bad.

Now, if UNC wins I'm out. If UNC loses, I'm in a "guess the final game score" tiebreaker.

Teams have always done that in both sports. Plus you know sports are supposed to be fun.
