KSR’s Guide to the Madness – Thursday Afternoon Session

madness-guide

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

Thursday’s afternoon games are:

(11) Saint Mary’s vs. (6) Memphis, 2:40 p.m. ET (CBS), MIDWEST, Auburn Hills, Mich.

Memphis has three McDonald’s All-American and a should handle St. Mary’s easily, especially since St. Mary’s may be without Jorden Page. However, if the Gaels’ Matthew Dellavedova gets hot, watch out. Maybe this is the year Memphis fans can finally get over losing John Calipari?

(14) Davidson vs. (3) Marquette, 3:10 p.m. ET (TruTV), EAST, Lexington, Ky

This isn’t your older sister’s Davidson team. There may not be a Stephen Curry, but there are several talented players, including De’Mon Brooks and Jake Cohen, who could give Marquette fits. Marquette is bigger and more physical than my Wildcats, but nothing can stop this proud alum from picking an upset. GO WILDCATS!

(16) Southern vs. (1) Gonzaga, 4:10 p.m. ET (TBS), WEST, Salt Lake City

This the first #1 we’ll see play, and I doubt it will be much of a game. If anything, tune in to marvel at Kelly Olynyk’s hair. It is a thing of hippie beauty.

(12) Oregon vs. (5) Oklahoma State, 4:40 p.m. ET (TNT), MIDWEST, San Jose, Calif

Oregon got snubbed by the Committee with a low seed, and combined with a healthy Dominic Artis, that may be enough fuel to upset the fighting Marcus Smarts. But there’s a reason Smart is projected by many to be the top pick in the NBA Draft. If he gets hot…forget about it, Ducks.

    If a 16 seed beats a 1 seed, not only does that mean there’s a 50% chance it happends against Indiana or Louisville, but it also mean free Crazy Bread from Little Caesars on April 8th!

    Did coach make a serious attempt at Smart for our PG? If not, why not? Are the Green and Yellow Girls College Cheerleaders?

    Ouch Ms. T…was that a shot at the Cats…

    “Memphis has three McDonald’s All-American and a should handle St. Mary’s easily, especially since St. Mary’s may be without Jorden Page.”

    Because, you know, a team with a few All-Americans should never lose to the likes of St. Marys. It’s not like they’re Robert Morris or something.

    I’m in IT so I have the access to stream the games on the web. I look in the corner and there is a “Boss Button”. I clicked on it and it turns the screen into an outlook inbox w/ an open email. LMFAO!

    Early going makes it look like Marquette and Pitt might be the first two BE teams to make an early exit.

    Is it true that Buzz Williams is the illegitimate long lost offspring of Curly Howard from “The Three Stooges”?

    Rerun at 5:30 of that documentary on the Cats that I was too depressed to watch on Sunday. http://www.trutv.com/shows/more_series/index.html#hpt=nav_shows2

    How did Louisville survive in a league with a juggernaut like Pitt?

    Love them cheerleaders. Satellite needs a cheerleader cam that we can put in the corner of the screen. If the game gets stale check out the babes.It’s a great idea!
