Up 5 with 5:38.

Up 5 with 5:38.

They went 8-0 to swing from down 5 to up three.They are draining the 3 ball now, Princeton helped them there missing some easy shots and a terrible in bounds pass...Princeton getting a little rhythm going too, good day of games so far...Gotta love it

Pretty cut and a nice dish for the Princeton score and a block at the other end to get the ball back...3 point game 4:30 left

I only had them winning this one in my "Gut-pick" bracket and had them losing in my "thought-out" bracket.

I just have to laugh @ BYU for starting 5 white guys. They don't stand a chance at winning the championship. They may not even get past Wofford.

What's funny is they were struggling against Wofford until they put in Abouo, who I think is their only black guy. He pumped up the energy and scored 10 points in the 2nd half helping them get the blowout.

Yeah, that hurt my bracket a bit. I had St. John's going to the Elite 8.

Didn't see the game. Did Gonzaga just play that good or did St. John's not show up to play?

Sorry, rockdawg, I just peeked in at the score every 10 minutes or so as I was afraid I'd jinx 'em.

From what I saw, they played very well. Of course, I'm biased. My husband, BIL, brother, his wife, FIL all went to Gonzaga and my niece is a sophomore there.

Gonzaga played really well, they showed up & really wanted it.

Not a terrible 1st day for me. My "gut-reaction" bracket went 12-4 w/ no 3rd rnd games affected, whereas my "thought-out" bracket went 11-5, but I had Utah St. advancing next rnd.

Yeah, I got hurt by Utah St. next round in my "thought-out" bracket (I think that "13-0 when holding opponents under 60" dazzled me a bit).

This is BS! The game is being interrupted to hear Obama talk about Libya?
Right now, there are Americans getting killed by the thousands each year in Los Angeles and he's talking about Libya and interrupting our games. Ugh!
They could play it instead of a commercial.

Please tell me that like half their squad got SARS or something!! :blink:

Butler down 1 with 7 seconds left against number 1 seed Pitt

matthughesfan21
03-20-2011, 01:18 AM
Butler scores to go up one, and a HORRIBLE foul on Butler, Pitt goes to the line for 2 shots with about a second left...WHY WOULD YOU FOUL THERE!

matthughesfan21
03-20-2011, 01:19 AM
It was at halfcourt, why the need to foul, may have just blown the game right there despite being the best player on the court

matthughesfan21
03-20-2011, 01:22 AM
Misses the 2nd one....Pitt fouled Butler on the rebound, and now Matt Howard goes to the line for a chance to win, tie game...Just needs one.....what a freakin crazy last 7 seconds, HOLY SHYTE

matthughesfan21
03-20-2011, 01:24 AM
Howard drains the first....


Two stupid fouls on both sides, just completely unnecessary...THe pitt foul was pure stupidity, he had the board just cut your losses and go to OT, but instead you have a brainfart and let them win with an easy free throw....Butler upsets 1 seed Pitt 71-70

Hey, don't sweat it, I didn't pick us to beat Purdue, either!! :laugh:

Honestly, I assumed that when they shut down our 3-pnt shooters, we'd panic & collapse. Instead, we pounded their AllAmerican big man & dominated the paint! :happydancing:

On a happier note - the city of Richmond, VA has 2 teams tonight competing to make it into the Elite 8.

Agreed. I'll be rooting hard for the Spiders (which will be really wierd for me, given all the years of cross-town rivalry :blink:), but it's not gonna be an easy night for them.

I wouldn't mind that, but I'd prefer to beat UNC. The ACC has been ducking us for a long time, so it's always fun when we get to chase 'em down & whup 'em in tourneys.
