Pitt staying in a zone while Xavier hit open shot after open shot was an interesting choice.
Xavier began taking the air out of the ball up 20 with 6 min to go completely destroying their rhythm. We are now at 1:40 and it’s a 3-possession game!

I just don't understand why both the men's and women's tournaments backload the games to evening. I would be flipping around multiple women's games waiting for more men's games if they put 3 at a time starting 11am.

Ratings pure and simple. Sunday during day people are out doing stuff, with their families, etc. Nighttime is prime time.

K-State getting all the looks they want but are 0-12 from three yet still lead at the half. Things could get bad here for UK unless Cal makes some defensive adjustments.

Good game between K State and Kentucky. I guess I’m rooting for Kentucky because every K State fan I’ve ever encountered had been a prick.

I couldn’t watch the start of this game, but from 10 mins left onward has been fantastic

K State hitting every Ft and they mashed everything from 3, too.

Tough to come back when the other team doesn't miss anything.

Smart > Izzo at the end of that 1H.

Smart situationally utilizes Kolek and his 2 fouls for offense, Marquette scores repeatedly. Izzo keeps Hoggard on the bench w 2 fouls and Spartans come up empty every possession.

Really bizarre injury to the Saint Mary’s player there. No contact was barely moving. Just dropped to hands and knees holding his back. Hopefully just a spasm but he could barely walk while being helped off the court.

Wow, Sparty is going to do it YET AGAIN, aren't they? Thought it would be too trendy to pick them over Marquette, but should have known better.

Like I said, this feels very familiar. Slow start. storm back, then suck for the last 6 minutes with out any pose or strategy to lose by 8 or so. The breathing exercises is a new wrinkle to add to the experience
