  • LSU just beat Kentucky. I don't think Big Blue will be dancing.

      • Villanova's played well in the first half thus far. Not getting my hopes up though, Louisville's shots are going to start dropping eventually and they showed how quickly they can close after a couple nice possessions earlier.

        • Just wonderful that Michigan decided to collapse in this half. I really hate Mike Davis.

            You contradicted yourself here.

            "We can now officially count out UConn as championship contenders".

            "I didn't see them as elite without Jerome Dyson anyway".

            As a UConn fan, I thought we were finished when I heard Dyson was out for the year. You can't overstate his value to this team. Dyson is/was a solid defender and reliable scorer. Without him, we're stuck with Craig Austrie (most ******* useless pathetic excuse for a basketball player....good at NOTHING) and Kemba Walker (amazing talent, but can't shoot from ANYWHERE).

            We lost to Syracuse because we don't have any perimeter shooters. Price tries but he had a bad night. Our bigs kept us in the game, but we were lost offensively when they fouled out.

            I still think our starting 5 is good enough to make a long run, but we have absolutely no depth (aside from Edwards - the man) and it will be near-impossible for us to go the distance and win the tournament.

            Pitt, on the other hand, is probably my favorite to win it all. Blair is a monster that no team can defend. When he stays out of foul trouble, he cleans up the glass and gets a ton of 2nd-chance points. Sam Young has a complete game offensively and he's difficult to defend. I'm not a huge fan of Fields, but he's a Senior PG and a good floor general, which is big in March.

            Don't jump to conclusions off one game (Pitt), but Connecticut hasn't been the same without Dyson. I guess it took a 6-OT game for people to realize that.

              If Louisville plays this well all the time they will be unstoppable

                • Geez Michigan looked bad tonight. No one looked worse than Manny Harris though. He couldnt do anything but turn the ball over. And did Mike Davis even miss a shot this game?

                    Obviously they won't be knocking down shots at that percentage on a consistent basis, but if they can stick around and have stretches like that they'll be ridiculous. They're incredible at contesting or blocking shots and getting their hands on the ball. Their defensive ability is just really going to bother teams come tourney time, and if they can score some they're going to be tough to beat.

                    Hopefully Temple pulls it out against Xavier.

                      • We really played like crap in the second half. It's ok, I'm pretty sure we're still in. I just hope we don't end up playing a team like West Virginia in the first round.

                            We'll probably be stuck playing WVU now that you've said that.
