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.
