    Eleven point lead with 39 seconds left and the refs tried and did succeed to cover the spread. Good win for the Cats.

      Not exactly perfect, but ok. I do have a co-worker from Buffalo, NY who is crowing about picking last night’s game correctly.

      No, but mine’s still in pretty good shape. Only three wrong picks, and all were teams I had losing in the second round anyway.

      I picked Arizona over Buffalo, but had them losing to us in the second round.

    • ukjaybrat
      11:04 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      RG. there only two types of people that picked arizona to lose.

      1) ppl that really WANTED that to happen so UK would have an easier game in round 2 (which to be fair was probably a lot of uk fans)

      2) people that probably made 100 brackets and that happened to be one of them.

      i highly doubt there were that many ppl outside of new york that thought arizona would lose

    • ClutchCargo
      11:08 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      ukjaybrat, there is actually a 3rd type: people originally from Buffalo who don’t even follow basketball. I work with one of those, and she has been crowing this morning!

      Jay, I did make the full allotment of 25 Brackets on ESPN because I want that $10,000 Amazon Gift Card, but I picked Buffalo in my “Dream Bracket” because I did watch some Arizona games this season and saw them as a beatable team. It wasn’t so much that I knew anything at all about Buffalo, I just like to go with a couple of not trendy upsets.

    Insomniac pro tip: When you’ve been up for an hour and a half in the middle of the night, and are feeling like you’re ready to go back to sleep, DO NOT check Twitter and find out that ARIZONA GOT BEAT! I’m on 3 hours now.

    It was funny, scrolling Twitter. It took 3 “The Cats will play Buffalo at… on Saturday” before it sunk in that it didn’t say Arizona. I’m SO relieved that if we lose, it won’t be to soon to be vacated cheaters.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:19 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      Yep. Woke up at 4:30, went for BR break, then checked phone. OMG!!! So now I am going on my third consecutive night of 5 hours or less.

    • Well, I stayed up and watched the game. Epic! The second half was a pure beat down.

    • ukjaybrat
      10:27 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      i woke up this morning and the first thing i did was check the scores in the espn app and my wife who was up for an hour already was telling me AS I saw the score but neither of them registered until about 30 seconds later. my waking up process is brutal.

    • Booby Petrino
      10:28 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      I woke up around 4 and looked lol

    • Realme
      10:29 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      So, was anyone actually asleep at 4 am? lol

    • I was! I usually wake up before the alarm goes off but not usually that early (I don’t think).

    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      cg, since you saw the game, what is the key to a UK victory tomorrow? Defend the 3-point line?

    • That’s a factor for sure. Now, if I recall, Matt said in the post game that the fact that the Bulls like to play fast plays into our hands. Bilas said he saw a ton of straight line drives toward the basket that weren’t defended well, so that has to be watched.

    • ClutchCargo
      11:11 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      RCF, I watched the game, and I can tell you we need to bring the energy. Buffalo plays with reckless abandon and all-out effort, so no lead is going to be safe. Not unlike a decent Arkansas team.

    • J-Dub421
      11:21 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      CC, so like every other game we’ve played? We’re well prepared for a team that wants to bring it for 40 minutes.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:47 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah, we should be pretty well battle tested by now. Probably 80% of the games we have played have been a dogfight. We should be used to the pressure of a close game.

    Buh Bye streak! Now if we could get people to stop obsessing about the so called “rule of 71”, we’d be a way less annoying Twitter fan base.

    • You can thank MJ for that though.

    • ukjaybrat
      10:28 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      Rule of 71 is absolutely dumb. correlation not causation. and it’s not even that great of a correlation.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:32 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      Oh well, had to end sometime – at least it wasn’t during a loss in the first round. Maybe if we had Baker we could have hit one.

    • I’m kind of glad it ended honestly. I could not believe my ears when I heard that guy in the post game ask whether Matt would have taken the win in 2010 v. the streak.

      Are you serious? I’m no Mensa, but is your IQ your shoe size? Yeesh.

    • Realme
      10:46 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      2 of the geniuses I follow on Twitter said after the game that they would rather have kept the streak going. Another did a Twitter poll asking which one fans would have chosen. Others complained bitterly. For one it was his least favorite victory ever. I don’t know what’s wrong with people.

      True that; I couldn’t believe they didn’t call those fouls on shots at the rim.

    • ClutchCargo
      10:53 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      This is true. But I would much rather see the refs let that stuff go than to blow the whistle every time down the court, like we see throughout the season in the SEC. Lack of depth could get to be a big problem for us if that changes.

  13. runningunnin.454
    10:43 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

    Been watching ncaa tourney and NIT with the rule changes…takes getting used to. But, if they want to clean up the game; defense fouls when they’re behind in the last minute…offense gets 2 FT’s and the ball. Last minute won’t take 40 minutes to play.
    We all know those fouls are intentional, but the refs won’t call them.

    • At end of UK-Duke game in 78, Dick Enberg yells “Oh they didn’t call it!” when the Duke guy fouled James Lee on his way to that awesome dunk. I’m glad they didn’t because we had been missing some free throws (Macy & Shidler I think, of all people) and Giminski kept hitting those turnaround jumpers.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:53 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah, and please do something about the flopping and the crappy block/charge calls. I know it is often a judgement call, but there should be some clear delineation they can come up with on what is a block and what is a charge. IMO, if the defender gets set AFTER the opponent leaves his feet, it should be a blocking foul EVERY TIME. Can’t understand why that is so difficult to call.

    • ukjaybrat
      10:59 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      “offense gets 2 FT’s and the ball”

      i’d be ok with 1 shot and the ball. 2 and the ball is a bit excessive.
      I hate the fouling in the last couple minutes because it is by rule an intentional foul. but they never assess it as an intentional foul. which is dumb. if they actually called these things intentional fouls, then players would stop doing it and would give more incentive to actually play defense (or just give up when you know you’ve been beat). fouling non stop for 3 game minutes is excruciating.

    • ukjaybrat
      11:00 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      it eliminates all skill of the game and makes it a free throw shooting contest. not fun to watch nor does it measure who’s a better basketball team imo.

    The guy that said Mckillop would out coach Cal and that’s why Davidson would beat us last night must feel like a dumbass today.

    • ukjaybrat
      11:00 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      yeah he didn’t out coach anybody. only reason davidson was in the game at all was because they hit so many threes to start the second half.

    • ClutchCargo
      11:04 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

      My guess is that guy feels like a dumbass every day. Or maybe he’s such a dumbass he has no idea how dumb he is. 🙂

      They’re pretty good. It was the worst possible matchup for Arizona, who also kinda looked like they didn’t want to be there after awhile.

    • J-Dub421

    11:54 am March 16, 2018 Permalink

    Someone else had crunched the numbers previously. I have read other articles that said similar things. Duke, UNC, and Kansas are often over seeded and underachieve. When those teams are good, they’re really good, but in down years they get overseeded and crap out early.
