College Basketball 2016: Houston, we have a full court press

Recommended Posts

Full disclosure, until this season, I thought that Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono's name was "Archie D'Acono".

Villanova is one of my alma maters (grad degree) and this is the first game of theirs I watched all year.  My biggest takeaway - they looked better when their uniforms had split numbers.

Perry Ellis can go be in Viagra commercials now that his career is over.

Have fun with Buddy, Nova!

 

Seriously, great win by Nova, they fought hard. I just wish we got KU vs Buddy 3.0.

So far, Oregon is showing why they didn't deserve a 1 seed.

 

Likewise for Kansas as #1 overall, right?

 

Self took a lesser team in terms of talent to the Elite 8, but they lost to a bunch of little dudes and whose responsibility is it NOT to have lesser talent?

I'm on the road right now and didn't watch it, but wow Cuse is in the Final Four. I thought the game was over at halftime.

Being a 1 seed in this years elite 8 sucks. 0-3 so far, UNC still has a chance to advance.

Syracuse Men's and Women's Basketball Teams are both in the Final Four....

 

Nobody cares. Sorry.

 

 

For as much as some wanna brag up the ACC, if UVA and UNC both don't cash in tonight, it's kind of a fail IMO.

Syracuse fan here. I don't think a team that underperformed for most of the season is quite a Cinderella. This isn't Davidson, you know?

 

Anyway, what a win. Virginia just fell apart in the second half and Cuse did all the right things. I didn't think the team would make the tournament, win against Dayton, and now here we are.

Remember when Doug Gottlieb (or someone else that was on-set for the Selection Show) said "What?!" when Syracuse was announced?

 

I guess they proved they belonged.....

Well, I'd consider them a quasi-Cinderella because of that. This was a talented team, but also one that many didn't consider a tournament worthy team. Yes in the sense of situation, no in actuality.

Like when "experts" (Gottlieb was probably one on 'em) threw a bitchfit about VCU making the field a few years ago.

 

When it comes to picking between the 45th and 50th best at-large teams, who cares? Just let 'em play!

Yeah solid run for the Orange, but it's not like they aren't an elite basketball program. This isn't the "shocking" run some are making it out to be.

Big conference. Legendry school. Down season.

 

A great example of this is when UNC made the 2000 Final Four as an 8-seed. They didn't belong, but when they made it, nobody was really shocked.

How the hell did we do that?

 

Great day for the Orange with both hoops teams going to the Final Four, bringing the total to 4 teams this academic year making a Final Four. Don't think we'll add to the two national titles we got from Cross Country and Field Hockey, but it sure is great to see the women's team reach new heights and the men doing.. whatever magic they're doing

That was an epic choke job by UVA in the 2nd half.  Just shows that none of the #1 seeds were all that dominant this year.  Even if UNC wins tonight, I'd say Oklahoma is the favorite to win it all, especially with how Hield is playing.
