The 2013 NCAA Men's basketball tournament got started Tuesday with a great game between Liberty and North Carolina A&T with the later winning by a mere point.
The Underrated Gaels of St. Mary's beat the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State.
Wednesday James Madison beat Long Island-Brooklyn and La Salle ran past Boise State.
Thursday things get started in he tournament in earnest. All thoughts and reactions to Thursday's and Friday's games go here.
For the record like the President I have Louisville and Indiana however unlike the President I like Louisville.
Thoughts From Day 1.
Davidson should have pulled the first big upset of the tournament but crapped their drawers to let Marquette steal a victory.
It rarely works out this way but Wichita
State's relatively easy win over Pittsburgh would seem to bode well for
Creighton tomorrow against Cincinnati. Pitt and Cinci split two games
each winning at the others place while Creighton beat WSU 2 out of 3. Always glad to see Steve P. fail.
didn't exactly quiet their detractors with a close victory over Number
16 Southern. Nebraska beat Southern in the first game of the season
66-55. Louisville on the other hand crushed North Carolina A&T by
more than 30.
VCU 88 Akron 42 Final. Oh and Syracuse picked Montana 81-34. Great TV games.
Missouri not play defense or do they just not play defense the NCAA
Tournament? Last year they couldn't stop Norfolk State this year they
didn't stop Colorado State. CSU was the MWC one lone bright spot (more
on that later) CSU Coach Larry Eustachy apparently behaved around
Missouri co-eds this time.
I'm a Nebraska fan. Is it true or a myth that if you win a game in the tournament you get to play another?
beat New Mexico in the Every tournaments has got to have one upset of a
13, 14 or 15 beat a 2,3 or 4. This was a 14 over a 3.
but Harvard beating New Mexico hurt my bracket. Good day for the Pac
12, BAD Bad day for the mountain west. Well except for Colorado State.
Thoughts on Day 2.
Duke didn't look good against Albany but unlike last year they survive and advance.
Another 12 is going to bring down another 5. Wisconsin can't hit Rush in the ass.
Good God Cincinnati's uniforms are ugly. Good God Fuck Creighton.
La Salle beats Kansas State...hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Creighton Vs Duke Sunday. Or as I like to call it F that Sh*t I'm staying asleep.
Duke Vs Creighton. I haven't seen that much evil in one building since...since...well the CPAC last week.
And a 15 beats a 2. Florida Gulf Coast 78 Georgetown 68.
Jonathan's San Diego State beat Oklahoma and get's Florida Gulf Coast next. Word of warning. FGC is the best 15 seed team I have seen. They beat Miami earlier. This will be a good game.
Iowa State gave the Big 12 it's only dignity with a 76-58 win over Notre Dame. Even Kansas 64-57 win over Western Kentucky wasn't anything to be proud of.
I admit it I thought Minnesota did not belong in the tournament after I saw them lose to Nebraska and then lost to Illinois in the first round of the B1G tournament. But they proved me wrong by blowing out UCLA completing a nice first round for the B1G.
It was a disastrous 1st round for the Big 12 and Big East.
