    Good point. very true.

    they get smoked.

        I'll disagree here. Most people will say that SIU "outplayed" Kansas, but I odn't think that is the case. SIU's defense was great but Kansas has the potential to play much better that that even agianst that kind of defense. They were careless with the ball and didn't play to their strengths. They did a terrible job of trying to establish their temp in that game too. When it looked like KY was going to blow them out in the first part of the game it was because Kansas played their way with itensity. I don't know what happened to that. kansas played terrible and I don't know if they would have won without the help of the refs. They better play much better than that if they want to beat UCLA.
        You know what the sad part is, KU shot about 20% better than SIU yet they barely won. I can only imagine if the Salukis would've had a decent shooting day what would've happened. My guess is that they would've won by 6 or 7.

        Regardless though, 3 horribly calls costed SIU overtime. And if that wasn't enough, 3 horrible turnovers by them at the end of the game. I'll give credit to KU for adjusting but this was SIU's game to lose, and they did just that. If they can make a simple pass they win this game. The two straight turnovers they had late on bad passes resulted in transition points for KU, and Falkers turnover late was absolutely awful. SIU could've and should've won that game. Kansas should be thanking their lucky stars on that one.

        Again, on paper, SIU doesn't come within 10 points of Kansas. And this goes back to Self's inability to coach. A monkey could take this team to the Final 4 with all the talent they have. Collins, Chalmers, Robinson, Wright, Rush, Arthur, Kahn, all of those players are Big 12 1st Team caliber (ok maybe not Kahn but the other guys are definitely)....I could go on and on with this team. But KU was effective when they scrapped Bill's lousy offensive game plan and just used their overall abilities to take over. If they face Florida again, they will lose, I'll guarantee it right here. I'm not that impressed with UCLA right now and I expect them to get passed the Bruins, but if they face Florida, I've got the Gators.

                  For a Freshman he is so impressive same shooting form as Butler same size and strength, sort of a flat type shot, and they both rebound well for their position.

                            Hell no!! Oregon baby!! Go Ducks!!

                            The reffing lately has not been good, which is sad. A travel like that should be reviewable IMO. And by GS's non-response to my post, I assume he agrees that Georgetown cheated out a victory on that one.

                            You CANNOT miss a call like that with no time left on the clock. Hell I called it and I didn't even have a good view of it. It's a bunch of garbage.

                              That's too bad! Sometimes it's better to no call if you're unsure and that was an instance right there. Georgetown and UNC will be an interesting matchup, assuming UNC wins.

                                I can't say that I've seen the game so I can't comment directly on the call, but Lifting the pivot foot alone does not constitute a travel. The player may pass, shoot, or call a timeout in that position. It's only a travel once the foot is returned to the floor, or if a dribble is started.

                                Even is it was a travel by rule, travels are so rarely called that blaming this one non-call is kind of ridiculous.
