HEY, BASKETBALL EXISTS: SEC has three in the Elite 8!
The SEC is the top conference in this years tournament, without a doubt.

RE: HEY, BASKETBALL EXISTS: SEC has three in the Elite 8!
As an SEC fan, this is good. It would be better if it wasn't the same old teams in Florida and KY. Imagine a Arkansas vs. KY and Florida vs. south Carolina matchup both being played today.

(I'm not trying to negate Vandy's season. But Arkansas played North Carolina well throughout that game. In order for Vandy to be in the Elite 8 they would have had to play tough against Gonzaga and West Virginia).

Not saying it is not impressive, but we need a wider top than Florida and KY, same as we do in football with Alabama.

Well the Zebra's reprized their performance in the last three minutes of the Arkansas game. They swallowed the whistle under the Kentucky basket while close jump shots got mugged and called the touch fouls under the Carolina bucket giving the Heels the free throws and distance they needed to close out a close game.

I'm glad South Carolina gets their first final four as they truly earned it. I'm just sorry the Gators had to play another SEC school to reach the Final Four!

Congratulations to both on a wonderful season and the Cats who deserved a better fate!

Thanks JR. When I saw John Higgins as the head ref for this game, let's say my confidence took quite a hit. I believe UK is only something like 3-9 all time with him as ref... with the majority of those games important tournament matchups over many years. Not to play a crazy conspiracy theorist, but when your team who has the best winning percentage in NCAA history, yet only has a Cleveland Browns-like percentage with one particular ref, who is always at the scene of controversial calls that always go against your team without fail, never for them, it makes you wonder. Weird that that's the only time we see a guy that's been nicknamed "the Hatchet Man"....

Anyway, on the bright side, congrats to the Gamecocks! Bring the title home for the league, brothers!

The coaches of various teams should each be able to strike one official they do not want working their games. They don't get to pick the refs, but each coach can remove one. This should never happen at this level.

Does anyone know if they plan to upgrade Colonial Life Arena? The scoreboard seems outdated and there are no led ribbon boards that I saw. Just wondering with the Gamecocks success this year if they are going to pump some more money into the program.
