    BIG10 is now down to 3 teams remaining…
    and if Kansas is to win the Final Four
    they’ll have to beat at least one or 3
    1st Purdue
    2nd Michigan
    and lastly Wisky

    Oregon’s facing a true point guard in Walton,
    and this deficiency will hurt them bad therein.

    As if that’s not enough, the Boucher loss will
    let Michigan drive to the hoop all day,
    lest theWolverines go off on 3-ball bombing…
    This will be Oregon’s worst point-spread loss.

    Press Virginia Mountaineers will take out the Zags.

    Team ball-pressure on every touch by Wms-Goss
    and the ball out of his hands slows down the Zags.

    If BYU can apply pressure to beat them in Spokane
    then Press Virginia will turn them over big time.

    The BIG10 proves to be the greatest conference since the Tourney’s start.
    BIG10 was an afterthought compared to the ACC & Big 12 when projecting
    which conferences would have the most teams remaining at this stage

    Kansas must somehow find the way that Purdue, Wisconsin, and Michigan
    could not find to slow down the 29th double-double from Caleb Swanigan,
    Mr. Indiana Basketball, who racks up double-doubles like the mini-LeBron
    that he is — 20-point, 12-rebound against Iowa State who could not slow
    his PURDUE TRAIN down – Selfie should expose his magic Jayhawk sauce
    or go home (by train)…

    Selfie Squad 38-point win vs. #16 UC Davis, 20-pt win over #9 Mich St.
    shot 56.3% & 53.1% w/ great 3-pting – nothing new there really since
    they rank 5th nationally in 3-pt FG %age – shooting a seasonal 40.6%:
    Already hit 19 3’s 1st 2 games of tourney. 1 great PG’s enuf – KU’s got 2 !!

    #7 Mich is the lowest-seeded team left in the Midwest
    and still has not crashed & burned: got to Kansas City.

    Their Mich practice uniforms are as cool as Oregon’s.

    Orego lost Sr. F Chris Boucher to season-ending ACL tear in Pac-12 Tourny.

    Boucher 2nd-leading rebounder, 3rd-leading scorer, but Brooks ought to get
    a few good looks – he’s hit double figures in scoring in 14 straight games,
    while Dorsey has taken the Tourney by storm in scoring 51 total pts the 1st
    2 games.

    W/ the Brooks/Dorsey combo at its best, Ducks + Wolverines — both top 20
    nationally in FG%age, Thursday’s clash in KC should feature plenty of points,
    but the more entertaining OVER just never turns out that way – now does it.

    PG – [b][u]Frank Mason III[/u][/b]
    21.0pts / 3.5reb / 6.5ast / 1.0stl / 0.0blk
    Mason = Naismith Player of the Year Award finalist
    Mason = 1st Kansas player to lead Big 12 in scoring –
    since the 2004-05 season when former Jayhawks’ F
    Wayne Simien accomplished the feat — and that’s
    just how Bucknell, a #14 Seed and 14 point dog to
    Kansass beat them back to Lawrence.
    Mason’s tremendous 3pt shooting ability, ranked 16th
    nationally in shooting 48.7 % on 150 attempts during
    the regular season, makes him a danger to the whole
    Selfie Squad concept if he is shut down (or even just
    has a cold-shooting night — Because the next dude
    is a double-double machine that similar teams could
    not contain.

    I refer to the wierd weapon SF/PF/C [b][u][i]Caleb Swanigan[/i][/u][/b],
    Biggie’s at 18.0pts / 13.0reb / 5.7ast / 0.5stl / 2.3blk

    Compared with his adversaries:
    G – Derrick Walton Jr., Michigan, SR
    18.0pts / 6.0reb / 8.5ast / 1.0stl / 0.5blk

    G – Tyler Dorsey, Oregon, SO
    25.5pts / 5.0reb / 1.5ast / 1.5stl / 0.0blk

    The powerful ACC has only one team remaining
    after earning 9 NCAA Tournament bids.
    But it had to have the help of the Refs (& TV-cash)
    to hold off Arkansas in the 2nd round.
    Roy Williams’ team leads the nation in skipped classes
    and offensive rebounds at nearly 16 per day & contest,
    respectively = NCAA-best +13.1 rebounding margin.

    6 years after back-to-back appearances in the final
    national championship game, Butler is again the dog
    because their 76–64 win over No. 13 Winthrop and
    their 74–65 win over No. 12 Middle Tennessee State
    were NOT flashy. But But has whipped some big-buts
    14 of 23 total wins coming vs. teams that qualified
    for the field of 68, and after knocking off defending
    national champion Villanova twice during the season,
    it’ll now have an opportunity to butt-out the butt of
    last’s year’s runner-up North Carolina.
    Butler has yet to trail in this year’s FF tournament.

    This year’s South Region games are in Memphis.
    John Calipari’s former team before this Kentucky job
    he took in 2009. Memphis.

    Calipari takes the court there for the 1st time since
    leading Memphis to the Conference USA title via a
    64–39 victory over Tulsa on March 14, 2009.
    This is a rematch from this season when the highest-
    scoring team in the nation, leading in seveal offensive
    stats, none other than the UCLA Triple-B-Ballers shot
    53% to end Kentucky’s 42-game home winning streak.

    Just one year ago, a [color=Red]’Fire Alford'[/color] banner
    was being flown all over the UCLA campus after they limped to
    an overall record of 15–17. Now Steve Alford has led UCLA
    to 31 wins entering a Sweet 16 showdown with Kentucky.

    The secret to the BBBall + 5 other players averaging
    double figures in scoring are TJ “Sweet” Leaf,
    Bryce Alford, Issac Hamilton, Aaron Holiday
    and Thomas Welsh –
    they’ve only turned the ball over only 3 times
    in the 2nd round vs. a physical Cincinnati defense,
    and by the time this team gets to Phoenix, she’ll be waiting.
