So, we gotta have a little conversation going about the tourney.

Looks like Isaac had a nice game, Bacon seems to be pushing his way into the lottery

Nice looking line from that Alkins kid from Arizona 8/8, 2/2, 6/6, 0 turnovers, 2 fouls, 20 points,  assists, 4 rebounds, 29 minutes. He looks like Marcus but with better skills and athleticism.

Man, this Purdue/Kansas game is pretty fun. I'm loving Purdue's bigs.

I'd love to watch Jackson several more games, but I can't help but root for the underdog in Purdue here.

Sure, why not?  Leaves a better chance Jackson is available with the 3rd or 4th pick.

Stupid fouls being called. Why not give South Carolina back rubs while we're at it?

Epic Gonzaga / SC game. Thornwell really looked off (maybe from the flu), but was otherwise fantastic.

Love the NBA-style slashing offense, none of that typical college garbage where teams pound the ball for 25 seconds and then jack up a 3 cause they're afraid to drive.

Just a great game. Gonzaga might well have just beaten the 2nd-best team in the Final Four. I like their chances in the Final.

Gotta love Jordan Bell's shot-blocking acumen. His stock has risen in this tourney. Right now he's projected as a late first/early second-round pick, though I don't know if he'll last that long.

I wonder if we could consolidate some of our second-rounders into a late first this year.

Man that kid Collins for the ZaAGAS HAS THE LOOK OF An NBA PLAYER, Collins can score and rebound, he knows where and how to move during a game. I have little doupt that he'll be an NBA PLAYER, Maybe a good one. I wish he'd get picked somewhere in the 1st or 2nd rounders, The Boston CLECTICS COULD BE A VERY GOOD place for how Collins plays. I think the boston Celtics co grab him he slips out of the 1st round. Celtics have a couple earlier picks,,,

Epic fail by Oregon not boxing out on those last two rebounds.

Jordan Bell is going be to haunted by that.

Incredible.

It was, but you have to credit UNC. They quietly dominated that game once they got it together in the 1st half.

Yeah, they were the more consistent team for the last 30 game minutes or so.

Monday should be good.  Meeks and Karnowsky can battle down low,  not sure either team has answers for Williams-Goss and Justin Jackson.  Gonzaga's inexperience could make them play free, or fumble; Berry is hobbled, and UNC has lacked a star since the NCAA investigations started.  I'm jacked.  Who you got?

Collins the x factor for Gonzaga
Jackson for UNC

I think Gonzaga will win a tight game

I didn't see Collins tonight (double-double with 6 blocks, noted), but assume South Carolina did not match-up well down low (they look to be small).  But agree that it'll be a close game, (hopefully) with UNC pulling out a win.  Good team, but maybe more importantly, a very experienced team that seems to have used that to their advantage all tournament.  Gotta make their [dang] FTs, though.  Geez, man.

Collins played well. Could be a decent stretch big in NBA off bench. Decent play making skills for a big guy. Maybe future replacement for Kelly, from same school no less.

Hope Zags win tomorrow. Should be a close game. Both teams have size. Zags seem to have more speed.

Great game for Collins, but he was overmatched against WV's quickness and athleticism in the previous game.  I think he goes back to Gonzaga for another year.

I've watched a lot of garbage games in my life but that one may have taken the cake.. the refs were terrible for both sides all night, both teams couldn't hit a free throw, and the polish bear was absolutely terrible (1for8 fg's). He must've missed every 2 foot shot he took and looked lost on defense.. there were 2 missed calls at the most crucial time that favored UNC, the jump ball call when Meeks hand was out of bounds as well as the next play where the shooter cleared out with his off arm. Just a terrible national championship game to watch. Still proud of my boys for putting the Zags on everyone's radar now

That game made me appreciate the NBA.

No title game will ever suck as much as Butler-UConn a few years back (sorry Brad), but this wasn't far behind. And I say that as someone VERY happy with the outcome. Sloppy, choppy game with just a few moments of decent ball mixed in.

That national title game was garbage.  No rhythm or tempo thanks to all the stoppages.

Make you realize how much of a different level the NBA is on between the refereeing & the actual game play.
