Lucky shot.

Nice shot and nice job of defending the shot. That was a great game to watch. Both teams played well and it's always hard to watch anyone lose a game like that. Both teams well coached.

Making the Badgers great again.

Birkel said...

Again?

Steven Davis said...

Happy that the Terrapins made it to the next weekend. Terps are strong on talent, weak on coaching, and Kansas is a tough draw, but if the Terps can get them into a transition game, something they don't deliberately do, they can cause damage.

Bay Area Guy said...

Wisc at the buzzer! Those are some great kids there.

Everyone has Kansas to win it, though.

Rock Chalk.

Lucky shot

Only if you think the players don't spend a lot of time practicing that very shot.

Koenig didn't hit a 3-pointer for the first time in 40+ games in the ugly Pittsburgh win. (He does hold the team record for consecutive games with a 3-point shot)

Mark said...

Good for Koenig to come through twice at the end.

We won't make it to the final like last year, but they did well making it through the first weekend.

Not sure where traditional guy was when we were playing in the championship game last year.

One of those games where neither team deserves to lose. Now if Nigel finds his shot as Bronson did, this Badger team could be very dangerous in their regional.

MadisonMan said...

I thought this was amusing.

Lucky shot.

Doesn't matter.

Meade said...

@MadMan, that there is some high level trolling:

"Xavier University (/ˈzeɪviər/ zay-vee-ər) is a co-educational Jesuit, Catholic university located in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States and is owned by Bronson Koenig.[7]"
Also an additional school motto was listed as "It was a lucky shot."

Great games yesterday!

I concur with Jason Gay: My NCAA bracket passed away last Friday, after a brave but short battle with optimism. It was barely 24 hours old. It enjoyed the touch of a felt tip, soft music, red wine, long walks on the beach, and, fatally, as it turned out, Michigan State men’s basketball.

I thought it was cool that despite the Michigan State upset the Big Ten got 3 berths in the Sweet Sixteen. Then I realized that with the new schools added to the ACC, they have six: Miami (3 seed) in the South, Duke (4 seed) in the West, North Carolina (1) and Notre Dame (6) in the East, and Virginia (1) and Syracuse (10) in the Midwest.

Despite Syracuse's double-digit seeding, it's easy to imagine an all-ACC regional final in the Midwest because, incredibly, they face a lower-seeded team in the round of 16!

And, no, I still can't figure out what a school located in the center of Indiana is doing in the Atlantic Coast Conference. I've heard of ocean-front property in Arizona, but putting Indiana on the Atlantic seaboard takes some unique lack of geographic skills.

I have Wisconsin winning it all. I pick them every year, in honor of my Grandmother whose maiden name was Badger!! Go Badgers!!!

Meade said...

Go wendybar's grandmother! (Homerism has a long and respectable tradition in college and high school basketball.)
