    Michigan barely survives, escapes with 1-point win.

    ...and with Arkansas beating Seton Hall, our last perfect bracket goes down. Two people are now 18 out of 19 (42 brackets total).

    fair points. also, there is a difference between "humor" and satire. Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal is seen as biting satire, though it is not necessarily "humor."

    Nice to see men's teams able to make free throws when it counts. I think URI just hit something like 24 in a row.




    Alaska is the only state that has never had a school even play in the NCAA tournament.

    Wyoming won the tournament in 1943; Utah won in 1944 (over Dartmouth in OT). At that time, there were 8 teams.




    Here is a bit of trivia: what is the only time a #16 seed beat a #1 seed in the Division I NCAA Basketball tournament?

    (it is not "never").

    Harvard women beat Stanford women when the half of Stanford's starters were injured and Harvard was underseeded.

    Said the magic words. He was talking to the referee, referee was just starting to turn away and then he said one more thing that earned him the T.

    After 32 games, there's someone in my work group at 32/32.

    8 of the 42 in our pool.....

    Fortunately for me, I did a "blind" draw where I picked by attributes, not team names, and I had Villanova losing this game anyway (albeit to Virginia Tech... )





    Upsets on the women's side in the first two rounds are very rare. Today, #12 seed Quinnipiac takes down #5 Marguette. There's never been a #15 over #2, but last night it was a one-point nailbiter at the buzzer (missed shot) for #2 Kansas Oregon State, 56-55.

    UConn: 34 assists on 43 baskets. Whomever they have as producer of the live feed does a great job assembling the replay that shows how their offense clicks. Pass Pass Pass Pass Score. No dribble.

    14 teams, ten in the tournament and the mighty ACC is nothing but Duke and Carolina halfway through the second round

    Michigan State was a hearty crew, but Kansas pulls away and wins by 20.

    Against South Carolina, in South Carolina, in a game that should have been in North Carolina, but was moved due to the bathroom bill to South Carolina, which couldn't host until two years prior due to the confederate flag.
