SB Nation College sites are joining together and posting some LIVE! analysis on all of the Tournament games.
I didn't watch the early session games but just watched the third batch of 4 and while 3 of them were boring, he VCU-Duke game was absolutely amazing. Duke got more calls than VCU and while it wasn't a total hosing regarding inconsistency, they called the game extremely tight while VCU's biggest strength is their rough defense. A lot like Southern Illinois actually, but VCU is a much m ore faster paced rough-and-tough defense whils SIU likes to slow the game down. That is why I want no part of SIU, although we'll cross that bridge if we come to it.
Anyways, if you want in on the LIVE! Tournament analysis, head on over to:
Card Chronicle tonight and congratulate Mike for Louisville's 20 point win over Stanford earlier today.
Rakes of Mallow, the Notre Dame blog, tomorrow afternoon.
And finally, visit Carolina March, the host UNC site here at SB Nation, for tomorrow night's action, or join us here at RCT for the KU Open Thread when we take on the Niagara Purple Eagles.
OK, now that SB Nation promoting is done let's take a quick look at the 4 games in the late set tonight:
#8 BYU vs. #9 Xavier
I picked X in my bracket (which has totally tanked thanks a lot to Oral Roberts' loss today to Washington State) and see no reason to change. Watch out for Drew Lavender, the former Oklahoma PG, on X and Austin Ainge, Danny Ainge's son, on BYU to duel it out.
#7 Indiana vs. #10 Gonzaga
The winner stands little chance against one of the best teams in the country in UCLA on Saturday, but that is why March is March and they still stand a chance against the Bruins. I picked Indiana in my bracket and will stick to it, although I'm not high on either one and could care less who becomes victorious.
#1 North Carolina vs. #16 Eastern Kentucky
UNC will absolutely dominate, it won't be close, and we'll hopefully have a #16 seed still never have beaten a #1 after tomorrow night's games.
#3 Pittsburgh vs. #14 Wright State
I'm not a big fan of Pitt. At all. And while I think they will win this game and maybe even Saturday's against VCU, they don't stand a chance to make it past UCLA. I have a weird feeling about this game, for some reason I feel Wright State being competitive for at least the first 30 minutes of action. I'm looking foward to watching this game and X vs. Mormons tonight with periodic check ins on the other two, especially IU vs. Gonzaga.
