Who are you picking tomorrow and in the FF??? ie who wins it all.
These games from the 16 on have been highly contested. The E 8's were all hard fought. Should be a fun weekend of basketball.
Go Zags!

2 4 seeds, a 1 and a 9 seed.

Michigan over Syracuse (could go the other way)

Champion: Louisville

The E 8's weren't really hard fought, Michigan just took it too Florida game was not ever close... Syracuse embarrassed Marquette... The Duke Louisville game was close at half until Louisville decided to just wallop Duke in the second half and make it unclose.... Then Wichita St. was just throttling Ohio St. until 2 of there best players both got hurt around the same time and allowed for Ohio St. to come back, but they were able to both get back in the game with around 2 minutes and secure the win. Honestly if they don't get hurt Wichita probably wins by 20 just like the other games. I felt all the E 8 games were embarrassing and the loosing teams failed to game plan right and failed to show up. Save for Duke until the second half.

They were very hard fought.Those kids worked very hard. That's different from wide margin victories. So what's your pick?

I had Cuse over Louisville at the start...see no reason to change.

The odds makers have Mich. by 2.5 and Louisville by 10..

Agree with your prediction, bartruff. Without the injury to Ware, would have been a closer call.

Managed to unload my tickets (center court, 15th row) taking only a modest haircut. Lessons learned (I think): don't book hotel until late, there will be lots of cancellations; and pay more for fully refundable air ticket. Would welcome contrary advice because I believe Zags will have another chance, perhaps in 2 or 3 years.

Shockers have a chance if Armstead doesn't play anymore. He is awful and a punk to boot. Thinks he's in the NBA.

The game is also atrocious, made worse by Kellogg and Nantz trying to convince us it's exciting. It's not.

If they beat Louisville maybe we can have some ammo to argue against the over-rated talk.

It is no huge consolation either way, but since someone has to win and someone has to lose, I would just assume have Wichita win it all as not.

I doubt it really matters b/c it sure seems to me that once Syracuse gets on these little late season runs of theirs, no one beats them.

I haven't watched one minute of BB since they lost and now watching two minutes of this, I know why. . . God it hurts.

WSU is for real. We got beat by a damned good team. I believe, so far, we have even played the best game against them of anyone in this tourney.

Unfortunately, we had to play them first.

I would still say Zags are the better team. In the 1 game scenario, WSU had some 3ball magic going , Bell was hurt, a Few Zags had brain freezes at the end of the game. And that's the way the it works sometimes, Sad.

me too. I was referring to Marshall's halftime speech to his team when he said Louisville would tighten up, but a pressing team like Louisville is made to pursue a lead

how about some of this Harlem Globetrotter stuff from Armstead?

Tough loss for Wichita. Our own guys must have watched . We were close but WSU shot the lights out and we shot 35%. SO it goes in the tournament. Congrats to WSU on a great season. Something tells me Louisville got pretty locky to pull this one out.

I always wonder what it would be like to be a fan of either team in this last game. Hearts must have been in their throats all game......the hallmark of a good contest I think anyway. THose announcers seemed to be struggling to find enthusiasm.
