Colorado State has a beast named Pierce Hornung. He must be Paul Hornung's grandson. Lesley Visser interviewed him and he looked terrible and sounded worse.
Colorado State led by 1 at halftime and coach Tim (not Les, thanfully) Miles tweeted, "win the half, win the game." Good call coach. Maybe old farts will say a coach shouldn't be tweeting at halftime, but what harm can it do, really? How long did it take, 10 seconds? Then his team shit the bed scoring only 17 points in the second half. Might wanna skip the tweet next time coach.
Rodney (I wanna call him Scooter) Magruder was on fire. Kind of reminds me of when Jacob Pullen was bombing away for K-State a few years ago.
I really missed Larry Eustachy. His firing really was bullshit. A few pictures with co-eds? Big deal. No wait now I'm remembering more details, yeah it was pretty bad. Glad he bounced back though.
Louisville has really gotten better as the season's gone on. They could be dangerous against Michigan State.
Marquette is another really good team. I think Missouri is a favorable match-up for them if they both get that far. Murray State also isn't a team that can overwhelm Marquette with size. Maybe this is the year the Big East doesn't disappoint with a bunch of big teams going out early.
Long Beach State vs New Mexico was the best game of the early session, such as it was. No really exciting games. This one was back and forth most of the way. Casper Ware is one of those players you never get to see but is really fun to watch. But he did hurt The Beach down the stretch with some bad shots. And New Mexico nailed its free throws.
In the last 11 years, 12 seeds have won 2 games in 10 of them. So how come I always get those games wrong?
What a comeback by Harvard. They just got behind by a little too much with too little time remaining. A 14-3 run in 3 minutes, but Vandy hit their free throws.
