KSR’s Guide to the Madness – Friday Afternoon Session


We’re not playing, but you know you’re still going to watch. Earlier in the week, we previewed each region of the bracket: MIDWEST, EAST, WEST, SOUTH.

Get your finger on that boss button and settle in for a day of procrastination with KSR’s Guide to the Madness. First, if you’re not around a TV, here’s the link to watch all of the games online: MARCH MADNESS LIVE

Friday’s afternoon games are:

1291129848756 creighton-blue-jays-girls-love-b-jays

(10) Cincinnati vs. (7) Creighton, 2:45 p.m. ET (CBS), MIDWEST, Philadelphia

Cincinnati relies on its defense and Creighton shoots the lights out. Creighton’s Doug McDermott is the nation’s second-leading scorer (23.1 points per game), so in order to have a shot, the Bearcats have to shut him down.

(13) La Salle vs. (4) Kansas State, 3:10 p.m. ET (TruTV), WEST, Kansas City

La Salle beat Boise State on Tuesday in the First Four, and also upset Butler earlier this season, so they’re capable of pulling off an upset, but they’ll have to stop Kansas State’s Rodney McGruder first. Also, WTF is on that woman’s head in the picture on the right?

(16) James Madison vs. (1) Indiana, 4:10 p.m. ET (TBS), EAST, Dayton

#TeamNotIndiana rules dictate you must cheer for every team Indiana faces. Therefore, GO JAMES MADISON. You were my favorite president, swear.

(10) Colorado vs. (7) Illinois, 4:40 p.m. ET (TNT), EAST, Austin

A lot of people are picking Colorado to upset Illinois, which is pretty much dependent on the performance of Brandon Paul, Illinois’ senior guard. If he has a good afternoon, sorry Colorado. Go look outside your window at the beautiful snow-capped mountains or drink one of your state’s fine craft brews.

    What kind of sick twisted tournament is it where I find myself enjoying Marshall Henderson beats Wisconsin?

    Shows that if Nerlens hadn’t gone down, UK would have been in the tournament for sure (the Ole Miss win was tossed out by the committee) and likely Sweet 16.

    Your pic for Colorado isn’t right. Colorado are the Buffaloes. Perhaps you are thinking of Cal, who are the Golden Bears.

    Colorado is the The Buffs, not Bears, wrong UC in the last picture.

    Henderson reminds me of a taller, more athletic version of Patrick Sparks who forgot to take his medication. He is out of control but fun to watch.

    #1, I was one of the fans who was quite vocal saying that I thought UK got screwed out of a tourney berth, even after the Vandy loss, but out performance at RM sure did shut me up about that!

    I think the Kansas St chick is wearing some kind of bizarre insane asylum mask like they had on Hannibal Lector, just painted purple. She must be a biter.

    Why is Cincinnati playing in early 1990’s swimming trunks?

    A big Thank You to Ole Miss for offering the SEC a bit of redemption after Mizzou’s flameout.

    You want a FF you could exactly be excited about and root for any of them to win? How about Creighton, Kansas State, VCU, and Miami.

    Looking at Cinci’s record, trying to figure out why they were so solidly in the tournament. I’m not sure it’s better than ours, yet they’re a ten seed?!

    #1 Had Nerlens not gone down, we would have been an 8 seed, at least I think. Perhaps much better.
