Interesting first couple of days. That Michigan State game the other night was great from just a viewing standpoint. Ohio St and Purdue losing were interesting. I can see Michigan getting knocked out with one of their best players likely out.

Looking forward to UCLA - BYU tonight.  Bruins better be ready............just last week I watched BYU take Gonzaga to the limit in the Mountain West Conference Championship game.  BYU led for maybe the first 80% of the game.  Gonzaga guard Jalen Suggs ended up sealing the deal with help from Kispert.  Suggs is a freshman and I doubt he will stick around.  Likely the #1 pick in the NBA draft if you ask me.

UCLA 73 BYU 62.  Bruins look TOUGH.  I heard an announcer say before UCLA's play-in game vs. Michigan State:  "Bruins are massively talented, it's just a matter of Coach Mick Cronin getting them to play together."  It looks like that is happening and I doubt ANYONE wants to play them right now.  GO BRUINS.

#12 Oregon State 80, #4 Oklahoma State 70.  Yet another upset.  Pac-12 is now 7-0 in the Tournament.  Four Pac-12 teams play again today:  Oregon, Colorado, USC and UCLA.  GO BRUINS!

Big Ten has been embarrassing. Probably the best conference this season. I think they can be out completely tonight. 😮

Agree. I live here in the Midwest, Purdue fan and I really enjoy the Big 10 in general. They always seem to get the most teams in , but really never ruffle to many feathers. This year was bad.

I prefer college ball way over the pros for many reasons. This is one of my fav time of years as far as sporting events. Great fun to be had.

That Michigan / LSU game last night was great. At least The Big Ten got one team in the Sweet Sixteen.

Gonzaga 93 UCLA 90, OVERTIME.

Without a doubt the greatest college basketball game I have seen in years.  And an all-time Final Four classic!  I would predict there are approximately 8 players from this game that will have NBA careers, probably 5 or so will be first round picks.  I never thought that UCLA could beat them, but I DID think that making UCLA a 14 point underdog was really a stretch.  If I were a betting man I would have put some cash down on UCLA to beat the spread.

UCLA lost their last four games of the regular season!  But as sometimes happens, in the Tournament, they finally began to gel at the right time.  Their talent was never in question, the question was whether or not Mick Cronin could get them to play together.  Obviously he did!  They beat Michigan State, Abilene Christian (???), Alabama and Michigan to get to The Final Four.

Good post!

UCLA did not lose that game, they just ran out of time and did not have the last shot. They have nothing to hang they're heads about. What a game.

That was one of the best played & exciting college bb games I've seen in years. Two really good teams going toe to toe.

What a game by Baylor - they looked scary last game, and really took it to Gonzaga.  Well deserved ...

@sang:  Agreed, that one was not even close, Baylor shut the Zags down right from the get-go.  SMOTHERING defense and unbelievable 3 point shooting. 

Despite that, I expect freshman Jalen Suggs of Gonzaga to declare for the draft and if I was calling the shots I would make him the #1 pick.  I've seen enough of this guy to know he's "got it" and he'll only get better.   I think sophomore Drew Timme of Gonzaga probably hurt his draft placement in that game.  He's an elite college big man but last night showed that he may have issues with the bigger and more athletic forwards he will go up against every night in the NBA.

a fantastic season for college basketball that ended in a pretty lopsided game.
