    Great game. Wonderful tourney so far for general fans going for an upset or close games and great endings.

    Stayed up to watch the UK-Wisconsin ending with my wife. The first tourney game I've watched this year. So fun! We were rooting for UK as they are the local team and they share colors and mascots (almost) with my alma mater. Harrison made a YUGE shot, especially when you consider the Wildcats had taken only 4 3-pointers the whole game and made 1 of them - AND he had only scored 5 points up to that point.

    The announces were criticizing the defender for giving him space, but even the defender was outside the arc and met his hand on the release. It was a long range bomb that rattled in. Pretty fortunate.

    Not sure why you're upset with me.
    I just answered TaS' question.
    Basic cable has different meanings and
    offers different things in different areas.

    WHO said they were upset with YOU? I'm upset with the TV business, Mr sensitive,,,,,,, I've worked for the cable industry since 1994, so if 91% of americans had cable/satellite , I'd never see my house. What you probably are translating is the percentage of areas where these communications are available. But believe me , it's a very shady business.

    I wasn't sensitive...I'm a piston's fan so being sensitive doesn't happen anymore.
    I just offered a website which shows data about the saturation of cable and satellite TV.
    Cable people frustrate me because of many reasons. I'm sure we have a lot of common ground here.

    Great game! When Kentucky had the last shot I was telling my cousin (who is not a big NCAA fan) "Hey, the #2 (Aaron Harrison) score the game winning shot when the defeat Michigan last week, watch out" ... And what we know happend, it happend!

    Great game! ... I couldn't watch the Florida vs UConn game but I'm downloading it right now.

    Yep, he hit a three to beat Louisville last Friday, so he was Mr. Trifecta in knocking off three tourney giants with game winning threes, three games in a row. If he does it Monday night then we need to draft him....just as the go to man in crunch time.

    If he gets the ball in the championship game while down 2, he's going to get quintiple teamed.

    Little under 60% of HHs have wired cable.

    Shabazz looked better than Peyton Siva did last year..... The Michigan Fab Five would have dominated these Kentucky freshmen. These guys were too loose and never really shot the ball when they got in the paint. Every drive to the hoop was a toss up and hope it goes in.......even in the semi finals......They just kept it close enough in the second half vs both Wisconsin and Michigan to win. This game was lost at the free throw line... though where the Huskies were perfect and the Wildcats were less than 60%..

    All of those guys need another year of seasoning, but you know Randle will bolt...
    When does Gores reach out to Kevin Ollie to see if he wants to coach in Detroit? :captain:

    I think they did a pretty nice job considering their inexperience. If the Wildcats had pulled of that win, they would have been the youngest team in history to win the tourney.

    That free throw shooting really killed them though. They drew tons of fouls, and were in the bonus./ double bonus a large part of the game, but couldn't capitalize.

    I love it when Dick Vitale is wrong....he kept pulling out that cowboy hat saying that Calipari would would be wearing it with a smile every time someone asked him who was going to win the wildcat games dating back to the win over Michigan.....

    Kevin Ollie, an LA high school player who attended UConn in the mid nineties is getting a lot love.... He was an NBA journeyman playing on 11 or 12 teams during his NBA tour. I think he signed a long term deal with UConn, and he won't leave there for another program, but I expect him to be coaching some NBA team whenever that contract is over. After all, if Mark Jackson and Jason Kidd can jump to a HC job without any experience,then Ollie can do it too.

    Great game! Like almost everybody, I think it was obvious that the poor % of ft is what hurt kentucky so bad.

    Looking at Napier, what is the ceiling for this dude? I thought of a less scorer Kemba Walker. What you say?

    Napier could be the next Mateen Cleaves.
