i went 14-2 on my ncaa sheet.my losses to unc wilmington losing to virginia and maryland to xavier ohio.the best games of the day were notre dame over princeton 60-58 and northwestern 68-66 over vanderbilt.you have to feel sorry for the vandy player fouled the notre dame player when vandy had a 65-64 lead with 15 seconds left. he wasnt aware of the situation. now the state of indiana, is 3-0,and ohio is 1-0(xavier)with 3 other tommorrow with cincinnati the only favorite,the other 2 will be dogs as kent state will lose bad to ucla out in sacramento,basically a home game for the bruins,and dayton which is a 7 seed will lose to wichita state a 10 seed,but i feel the shockers are a better team than dayton and the big ten is 3-2 with wins by northwestern,wisconsin and purdue and losses by maryland and minnesota.michigan and michigan state plays on saturday,

In this year's tournament...
Xavier and Gonzaga both made their 16th appearance in the Round of 32 Xavier and Gonzaga both made their 8th appearance in the Sweet 16 Xavier and Gonzaga are both making their 3rd appearance in the Elite 8
So for 2 schools with such similar tournament resumes, it's only fitting that they are facing each other to see which one will be the first to break through and make it to their first Final Four

So we have two schools that are making their first ever Final Four, one that's making their first since the very first edition of the tournament, and then one that's making its 20th appearance and was just there last year.

cant wait till the oregon-north carolina game and south carolina-gonzaga game. i picked north carolina from the beginning of the season and if the tar heels can stop the quack attack,i am very confident they will win it all.i think south carolina"s bubble will bust against gonzaga.north carolina-gonzaga final would be intriging.
way to go north carolina and gonzaga. i took n.carolina from the beginning of the year and im looking good,and i did pick gonzaga to end south carolina magic run. wow n,c missed 4 free throws in the final secondsbut oregon did not block out and carolina got 2 offensive rebounds and oregon never got a final shot.woohoo!!!!
