First off, congratulations to the Florida Gators and Bucky Badger for giving us our first truly epic game, where both teams fought like scalded dogs and nobody derped away the ending. Florida just made the last unbelievable clutch, dagger play.
#11W Xavier v. #1W Gonzaga (6:09, TBS)
A friend of mine told me that the Jesuits were like the Marines of the Catholic church. Well then, ooh-rah X!! I recall talk about the Zags joining the “Catholic Seven” when the Big East re-formed in the wake of mass defections to the ACC. But ultimately, they stayed West, and slightly less geographically misfit Creigh-Creigh became side #10, joining #s 8 and 9 Xavier and Butler. Anyway, this will be a fascinating matchup on many levels. Really looking forward to it.
#3MW Oregon v. #1MW Kansas (8:49, TBS)
One of my hazy thoughts derived from this tourney is that I have vastly underestimated Dana Altman’s coaching chops. He will rise even higher in my estimation if he can get the Ducks (and their retina-scalding unis) past this one. Kansas, as always, can get right fucked.
See everyone tonight!
