Deandre Hunter isnít worth the difference between the #1 overall seed and a #16, though.

Congrats on your bracket.

Still it was a morale blow I wager.

No idea how that last shot actually went down.  Good for Loyola.

So DeAndre Ayton, according to Jay Bilas, is so good its already time to call him a hall of fame talent, but he couldn't get his #4 seed, most of the year top 10 ranked, team past a #13 seed team from Buffalo.

Hmmm.

Well with Loyola-Chicago's win, my bracket remains perfect.  TP, tar.

His defense is a real problem.

Ive read a couple several articles that claim he's convinced himself he's a power forward. Someone has to get in that kids ear and find a way to get him to buy in to being a dominant physical presence at the 5.

I had VA picked to lose as they lost a player with a broken hand.

Didn't folks know this?

You had them lose in the first round to 16th seed?
Yeah. Anyone who claims they thought UVA missing one player would make them worse than UMBC is lying to themselves.

So does UMBC have a chance against Kansas State today?  I am a big12 fan, but I don't mind Kstate getting upset today if it gets the UMBC guys into the sweet 16.

I saw a funny tweet yesterday that I think applies. I can't remember where, but it went something like:

UNC getting blown out right now by Texas A&M.

Hopefully this holds.  The only thing better than UNC loss is a Duke win!

UMBC can play some defense. They were outstanding defensively against UVA and are great tonight too.
