    Michigan choked. Missed their final eight shots. And yes, an ugly game. Only 10 points combined 7 minutes in to start. I was hoping for a combined point a minute rams display of revolutionary basketball.

    Interesting. I would guess a couple things are factors in this:
    No Friday night games. I think that is the worst night for tv viewing.
    Less people congregating in bars watching together.

    hey, dope, point a minute = a 40-40 game. “combined point a minute” = 20-20

    U R High isn’t known for its mathematical computational programs, smarty pant Haaaavaaahd on the, hock, hock, Patoo Hooooccckin’. Was it too much to hope that the half time score would be 10-10 and thus a point a minute, half a point per minute per team, Hineystein?

    If Baylor can somehow win the whole thing against Gonzaga. I would call that a victory for me since that was my finals prediction.

    barely. Like i said if baylor beats Gonzaga in the finals i might have an outside shot. I'm sure a few people ahead of me probably have the same outcome though.

    TIMME!!!!!!!!!

    That game was fantastic.  UCLA balled their hearts out.  Gonzaga looked amazing the whole game too.  One of the best college games I have ever watched.  

    That Jacques kid from UCLA has a lot of heart.  I see him doing well in the NBA.

    Suggs, Ayayi and TIMME are an amazing front court for Gonzaga.  I don’t see anyone beating them as long as those 3 are together.  All 3 of them are playmakers and that is tough to beat.

    I guess Gonzaga blew their load against UCLA and had no more intensity in the tank.  Baylor came out getting stops and on fire from the 3.  Zags couldn't catch a break or a stop...

    Did not watch a minute of college basketball....finished 2nd in a small pool and 156 out of 1,165 in a larger pool.  Would have been top hundred had Gonzaga won.

    Was interested last night but ended up watching baseball and reading a book until I crashed out around 10.  :lol:    

    Figured Wobbie would text me if anything cwazy was going on.  ;)

    That's pretty similar to me vs my wife. She picks matchups based on which mascot/logo she likes better. She would have beat me this year if UCLA had beaten Gonzaga.

    If Baylor can somehow win the whole thing against Gonzaga. I would call that a victory for me since that was my finals prediction.
    Are you in the mix?

    barely. Like i said if baylor beats Gonzaga in the finals i might have an outside shot. I'm sure a few people ahead of me probably have the same outcome though.
    I was dead early. I bet the vast,  vast majority of those that have Baylor Gonzanga have the Zags winning it all
    The best I can do is Fourth 😐
    Turns out that if Baylor wins, my wife wins.  I didn't even realize that.  She's in 5th or so, but everyone above has the Zags. 
    😆. Yeah I saw that. 
    Three  years ago, my teenage daughter won it.  Neither of them watch a lick of basketball. 
    That's pretty similar to me vs my wife. She picks matchups based on which mascot/logo she likes better. She would have beat me this year if UCLA had beaten Gonzaga.
    My wife is not so insane that she ignores the little numbers in the brackets, but fundamentally, she uses the same strategy as your wife.  When the numbers are close, she goes with colors and logos.  Or states that she likes to visit.  As good a strategy as any, clearly.

    I was 2 points from third and like 7 from first. D'oh!
