Some things to watch for in this year’s tourney, and yeah I am using the old region names: South Region (Atlanta) This is the toughest region in the brackets. People have projected a Duke/Carolina regional final, but what about the possibility of a 2nd Crosstown Shootout between Cincy and Xavier? Actually Carolina is underrated as […]

The most popular upset pick I am hearing is Texas Tech over Saint Joe’s in the 2nd round. The theory goes that Bobby K. will craft a brilliant game plan to vanquish the Hawks. Has anybody looked at Knight’s tournament record lately? He hasn’t made it to the Sweet 16 in his last 7 tournament […]


As the traffic of this site reaches its peak today, it’s time to give thanks to the folks who contributed to this site’s success. Even though it’s technically a one-man operation here, a lot of people chipped in to make things better. Many people have submitted corrections to the games file used to create the […]

Apparently it came down to UTEP vs. Utah State for the last spot. Andy Katz broke this news about 5 hours before the brackets were announced. I wonder if CBS is going to launch an investigation because clearly a committee member leaked this info to ESPN, violating CBS’s exclusive rights for revealing the brackets. I […]

I updated the Bubble Analysis below to reflect Southern Illinois’ loss in the MVC tourney. I’ll do another update if Gonzaga fails to come back against Santa Clara. They’re currently down 9 with 10 minutes to go.

This is the final bubble analysis that I’ll put a lot of thought into. I’ll be at the Mountain West Tourney this week, so my attention won’t be focused on posting here. This is the first year I have really tried to play along with the committee and I’ve learned a few things. First, the […]

If you can only watch one game on Saturday, ignore the overhyped Duke-Carolina rematch. Instead check out the Atlantic Sun Championship at 4 Eastern on ESPN2. It’s Troy State vs. Central Florida, the two best teams in a conference where the 3rd best team, Belmont, has wins over probable at-large teams Missouri and Air Force. […]

If you were rooting for any team with a “Tech” in its name, it was a good night. Georgia Tech 76, Duke 68. The Jackets end the longest home winning streak in the nation and boost their NCAA seeding. Sorry, but Duke is still a frontrunner for a #1 seed. The current longest home streak […]

It’s not often or maybe ever that a team loses 8 of it’s first 10 conference games and then ends up playing for an at-large bid in the regular season finale. But that’s exactly what has happened to Virginia this year. Tonight, for the 4th time in their last 5 games, they won on a […]
