All games are on one of the 4 channels. No Pacific Coast games only.

Wichita State VCU is huge for me (besides the obvious interest in Syracuse) today...

I have VCU in my Sweet 16...

Click between the regular screen and gamecenter a few times. That usually improves it.



Hornung is looking real good for Colorado St.

Indeed, it started out really not working but the picture is flawless, on a PC and on the iPad. I am all set, two TV's side by side and the laptop and the iPad. I will be surrounded by hoops for the next 12 hours. My wife is questioning her decision to marry me.

Colorado State needs to take care of the ball, turnover city right now. 16-2 to start the half, hopefully Colo St can make something of a game out of this.

Murray State's defense has been smothering. If their offense was half as effective, they'd be up by 30.

Hopefully UNC-Asheville can keep it close for some 16-over-1 drama.

How about 14 minutes later. SU down 5 to UNC-A. And playing terribly along the way. SU has earned every bit of this 5-point deficit so far.

I am........unhappy.

This is what Ken Pomeroy posted before all the Melo drama.

This is the year a 1 loses to a 16

The crop of 16 seeds in the 2012 tournament appears to be the strongest ever. I went back through my ratings going back to 2003 and then the SRS ratings at College Basketball Reference for data before then to find the 16-seeds that were ranked the highest. These are the ten-highest ranked 16-seeds of all-time:

Year Team         Rank
2012 Lamar         102
1993 Wright St.    105
2009 E. Tenn. St.  111
2006 Oral Roberts  115
2012 Vermont       120
2012 UNC Asheville 121
1986 Montana St.   124
2008 Portland St.  127
1987 Penn          130
1985 Southern      130

Yep, 2012 has produced three of the strongest 16-seeds in the history of the tournament. Consider, too, that comparing the raw ranking of a 2012 team to teams from the Ď80s and Ď90s isnít totally fair since there were fewer Division-I teams years ago. A ranking close to the top 100 is more impressive now with 345 teams in the mix than it was when there were 50 fewer teams.

Frightening how bad the defense for SU has been. And the shooting. Like, bunches of little 7 footers that result in back rim misses. And poor foul shooting. And settling for 3's. YUCK to the whole damned half.

I hope they come out and have one of those 16-4 runs to start the next half or it's going to be great-oogly-booglies as they bow out to a 16 seed. First. Time. Ever.

Triche got hosed at the end. Should have shot two shots on the double bonus, as the foul came *before* the shot clock went to zero. Very clear on that. Shouldn't have been a 3-point play, obviously, but why did they take the foul away?

Ken Pomeroy tweeted that UNC-A has the smallest frontcourt in Division I. With no Melo, if UNC-A can do what they are doing to SU, how the hell are they going to beat anyone else?

BYU making a mini-run to cut the deficit to 8, but Marquette answers strong and it's back up to 14.

The David vs. Goliath story is fun (for non 'Cuse fans, anyways), but I expect the Orange is going to get their heads out of their rectums and crush UNC-A in the second half.
