    Any idea if we’ll be the final CBS game on Sunday at 5pm or will we be earlier or another network?

      If we’re playing Wichita I’d say we’ll be that prime time slot…

    First 2 days of the tourney are basketball heaven.

    It’s shitty we have to play NKU
    I’d like to support NKU and wish I could root for them for a game or two. Quit pairing is up with other state schools. Crappy. I hate the NCAA

      It was awesome when Morehead knocked off UofL, but I get what you’re saying.

      Yeah…had to play WKU in 2012 too which sucked

    Vandy upsets Zags. Probably the only 1 seed they could hang with if they shoot well. KU losses to Iowa St.. Butler upsets UNC. SCAR beats Duke. Nova only 1 seed to make it unscathed.

      dude south carolina sucks. they’re playing like trash. as much as i’d love to see USC beat Duke, i just can’t imagine that happening. hope i’m wrong, though.

    We have to take them one game at a time. Over-confidence can be difficult to contain sometimes. They seem to be playing with a purpose.

    I like this teams mentality going forward. Its clear they are playing for each other. No more Monk hero ball anymore. Wichita/Dayton will have to gameplan for Fox/Monk/Briscoe/Bam… each one can and have gone for 20 in a game. Its hard to do that. I think these two games will be good for them to get ready for 16 matchup with UCLA. UK is good enough right now to not have problems with first weekend if they come to play like they did today. If they are growing like they have been then the 16 matchup will be epic following an 8 bout.

    I admit, I least wanted to see UCLA and to potentially face them in the round of 16? Even the second round game is going to be way tough. I think I fear UCLA because they beat us when I thought we were flawless. But a lot has changed, and the narrative is not offense on this team anymore, no more Billy Tubbs outscore-’em with no defense style games. So maybe when we actually defend, maybe with some revenge on our minds, we can avenge that loss. Of course, UNC will be thinking the same thing if we make it that far.

    It feels like a 2011, 2014 path and yet… wait, we’re a #2 seed?!

      UCLA doesn’t play much defense, generally when they’ve lost it’s because they were cold from the field. Sounds like UK before February. I’m just hoping our defensive effort stays high, we *could* beat anyone playing this way

    Big Blue and Green beer. I’m down!

    What happened to the higher seed playing first?

    Chris Webber and Len Elmore are back. Hope they don’t get paired together.
