If BYU Cougs what was a 13 pt lead my brackets will offically be a grease fire.

Scottie Reynolds is getting the total superstar treatment from the refs in this Robert Morris/Nova game. 4 blown calls the last 2 minutes.

Everytime Scottie drives to the rim, he's getting the call. Even when RM cleanly blocks the shot. Going to OT, but this game should be over.

Oh, I just LOVE this. I hope three of the four Big Least teams go down tomorrow too - with Syracuse lasting just long enough for Gonzaga to dispatch them. I'll admit I think the remaining BE teams are pretty good, but we'll see tomorrow.

They lost 3 games in the NIT too, so are what now? 2-6 in postseason play, with one win in overtime against a 15 seed?

Gregg Doyel with an absolutely brutal article about Kansas' collapse:

http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/story/13090780/its-a-crying-shame-kansas-didnt-want-it-sooner


Better late than never, Kansas wanted this game. Time had run out, sadly. Ninth-seeded Northern Iowa had just beaten the No. 1 seed Jayhawks -- the No. 1 overall seed Jayhawks -- in the second round, a 69-67 upset Saturday night that will rank among the biggest shockers in NCAA tournament history.

And Kansas wanted it. Finally.

...

Senior guard Sherron Collins walked toward the Kansas bench to be near someone, anyone, who might feel his pain, and finding nobody to hug, he simply collapsed in a heap in front of coach Bill Self's empty chair. Sophomore forward Marcus Morris was on his hands and knees. So was his twin brother, Markieff Morris.

Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- every year since 1998.
