  • Hampton knocking off Kentucky tonight would be possibly the biggest upset in the history of the tournament.




  • Come on man, display point spreads, why do you think it's such a popular annual event :D:D

    I like the Irish and SMU to cover tonight




  • So far today:

    - #3 Notre Dame barely survives #14 Northeastern 69-65

    - FIRST UPSET OF MARCH MADNESS!! #14 seed UAB take down #3 seed Iowa State

    - Another #3 seed is gone! #14 Georgia State have taken down #3 Baylor 57-56!!!

    Just amazing scenes in this, R.J Hunter hits a clutch 3 with 2 seconds left causing his dad and coach Ron Hunter to fall off his stool!!

    - #2 Arizona takes care of #15 Texas Southern with ease, winning 93-72




  • UCLA take out SMU 60-59 advance to play UAB on Saturday. Brackets everywhere in ruins slready.




  • Anyone watching the Final Four? Spartans jumped out to a great, but obviously unsustainable start shooting 5/5 from 3 and going up 15-4. The game has been all but over since Duke took a timeout shortly after that however. Duke defense has really stepped up and the Spartans don't have an answer.

    Unfortunatly nit watching it. This year but duke where always gona win and I maintain Kentucky will win overall comfortable.



    I fear Marc madness is suffering from the one and done rule




  • Fell asleep just before the second game, but Wisconsin beat Kentucky! :eek:




  • They need to get rid of the really long shot clock. It's off putting to watch a team take over 20 seconds to set up their offense. Tempo is too slow watching college basketball.

    Ya boy was I wrog I know people said Wisconsin had the tools to challenge them (ie. Two dominant bigs) but thought they would win easy enough they didn't play particularly well come tournament time to be fair notre de nearly had them but for that insane 4th quarter




  • Moved above posts into March Madness thread :)

    Kentucky going down last was a massive shock.

    Duke vs. Wisconsin for the National Title on Monday night

  • Wisconsin seem to have done a great job concealing all these weaknesses that a lot of people seem to think they have. I have to take K over Bo Ryan in the final, I'll probably be surprised again...
