Old commit Daniel Bejarano playing well for Colorado State.
Frank Haith not doing the Barnes tree any good.
That tree = lack of tourney success.
Well crap, , Harvard is taking out my adopted #2 team. This sucks.

Yeah New Mexico is gonna ruin my bracket
Mine is done. Had them in the elite 8.
On to next year and a waste of $50.
CSU was the lone bright spot for the Mountain West tonight with both UNLV and New Mexico losing to double digit seeds. Harvard isn't even that good this year.
I wonder how much longer Haith has in Columbia. The fanbase was unhappy with the hire, unhappy with the loss to Norfolk State, very unhappy with the mediocre showing this year, and now it will be livid with the second straight one and done and the new loss being in a game against an unranked team and in which it was behind by double digits for most of the second half.
I'm going to the Frank Erwin Center tonight for the tourney,, anyone know If I can bring in a backpack as long as I allow it to be searched? On their prohibited items, large bags/backpacks are listed but no specific size.

What would you need to take in?
Take a man purse
I went 10-6 on my picks yesterday. My upset bids went to shit and NM/Ok st f'd me. Hoping for better today although in money play the one bet I made was for Davidson to cover so I made some money
12-4... nailed some, missed some horribly

it would just be an empty bag for my bike lock.
I know they check women's purses when they walk in but I don't think they let full size backpacks in. Maybe a small bag they would
The Big 12 sucks sooo bad. KState getting throttled by Lasalle, nearly halftime.
Shows just how far we have fallen. From being able to compete with the best teams around to getting beaten down in a conference that might be the worst in the country (out of major conferences and the best 2 mid majors)
Gonzaga's side of the bracket couldn't have gotten any easier. All the higher seeds won. They get past WSU and the will face a double digit seed in the Sweet 16.
A team is choking in Austin and its not us, so there's that. Illinois has 2 pont in 10 minutes in the half.
Well I guess Texas could be in worse shape than it already is if Bruce Weber was the coach.
Started to think the same until realizing Weber beat Barnes 3 times this year
I feel bad for Jordan Henriquez. I really thought for the last couple of years that he was very underrated. He had a great game--17 points, 12 rebounds, 5 blocks--then he fouled a guy while trying to get a rebound to give LaSalle the winning free throws and missed a jumper to go back in front with 12 seconds left. Tough last 30 seconds to to end the career for a guy who I thought always played with a lot more effort than many gave him credit for. He just wasn't coordinated enough to ever be a consistent offensive force. I'm going to miss watching him play.
I still get a kick out of the story about Martin going on the home visit and babbling incessantly for 5 minutes before Henriquez said, "Coach, I don't speak Spanish."
#3, 4 and 5 are out. I actually have OSU coming out of the west; but the road to the elite eight has been wiped clean.
The biggest upset of the tourney. FGCU is up by 16 over #2 seed Georgetown. One of the guys in my Saturday morning spin class was a Georgetown administrator before retiring and a huge Hoya fan. He has to be in shock at this point.
If you have a PG and athletic forwards and guards that can shoot and rebound you can play with anyone.
Comer is the best player on the court right now. Controlling the tempo of the game.
Refs are letting Georgetown get away with a lot of contact.
You've got to be shitting me with these last 2 calls.

You have to be kidding me. A 14 foot in the air alley-oop lob when you are playing for a #15 upset and are up by seven. That was sick.
FGC makes their free throws down the line to hold on to the upset. Hope Phil survives the ordeal.
Comer is a great PG who can't really shoot. However you surround him with forwards that excel in pick and roll and a couple of shooters he doesn't need to be a great shooter.
Georgetown are some punks, not surprising considering the coach.
three 15 seeds have beaten a 2, in the last two years. crazy.
