Open Thread- NCAA Tournament
Mt St Mary's beats New Orleans 67-66 to open play in Dayton. The game featured two of the three shortest players in D1. UNO started a 5'8" guard, and The Mount starts a 5'5" guard who led the game with 23 points.

UNO's coach has to regret his late game decision. UNO cut it to a 1 point deficit with 34 seconds left. He opted to play defense straight up rather than fouling. The Mount ran the shot clock down and missed a shot. UNO got the rebound but was forced to try and go the length of the court in 2.9 seconds. Puzzling decision.

If Wake played just a little bit of D they'd be a really good team.

The Deacs looked good at times. There just weren't enough good times...

Most didn't think KSU would outgun Wake but that's what happened. You can't win when you allow the opponent to shoot 81% for the game on 2 point field goals.

Notre Dame survives Princeton - I knew Princeton was good, but that was closer than I expected.

UVA survives against UNC Wilmington.

That's two ACC teams advancing already today. Hopefully FSU and Virginia Tech make it four!

Open Thread- NCAA Tournament
A little tournament trivia. Since the NCAA tournament expanded in 1985 only 5 teams have won their conference regular season championship, conference tournament championship & the national championship.

1985-86 Louisville Cardinals (Metro)

1991-92 Duke (ACC)

1997-98 Kentucky (SEC)

1998-99 UCONN (Big East)

2006-07 Florida (SEC)

Kentucky & Florida won their division (best conference record)

Dang. Hokies were within striking distance of Wisconsin at the end, just couldn't get over the hump. Yet again, lack of size allowed too many offensive rebounds.

Really proud of this team though, they never quit even despite the adversity of losing one of their best players and running with a 7 man rotation. Buzz has brought basketball back to Blacksburg and the future looks extremely bright at Virginia Tech.
