Let March Madness Begin
LET THE MADNESS BEGIN AS THE NCAA TOURNAMENT TIPS OFF TUESDAY NIGHT IN DAYTON - AND WE'RE CHOCK FULL OF OPINIONS ON THIS YEAR'S BIG DANCE
Geez, please allow us to get something off our chest as we start off this NCAA Tournament-filled column:
If you watched ESPN's two-hour Selection Show from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time last night then you had a few yucks with Kentucky head coach / comedian John Calipari and you learned a little something about the sport's young stars (see Duke's Zion Williamson and Murray State's Ja Morant) but, when it was time for "experts" Dick Vitale, Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams and Rece Davis to make their Elite 8 /Final 4 /National Championship Game picks, you were assaulted with nothing but #1, #2 and #3 seeds ... really, guys, we need you for that?
March Madness Off To 4-0 Start This Week
FLASH! March Madness Off To 4-0 Start This Week
I am pleased to report March Madness is off to a powerful 4-0 week, opening Monday with my biggest play of the post-season as #22 Wofford (-7) beat NC-Greensboro, 70-58, in my 100-unit Mid-Major Game of the Year. Yesterday it was 3-0, with the highlight being underdog Saint Mary's win over #1-ranked Gonzaga, 60-47, as a 14.5-point underdog.
This is a reminder that anything can happen in the post-season when so much is on the line. Saint Mary's went into its game with Gonzaga as an NCAA "bubble" team, if that, and had to win to the championship game of the West Coast Conference to get to the big dance. Win it did against the #1-ranked team in the country and gets an automatic invite to the NCAA classic.
