NIT is on. Yale at Vandy at 9.  We didn't get a top 16 seed and got a tough draw.

Hell of a way to end your college career (this was his final year of eligibility).

yeah, he somehow figured out how to top losing to UMBC as the biggest blunder in school history.

One of the members of my pool had UVA winning the whole thing. Ooops.

Maryland barely beats WVU, WVU missed a last second game winning shot.

Most years, you won’t go wrong having uva out in the round of 32. They just find a way to lose

Watching a highlight of the UVA game ending reminded me of this one. Just a total brain fart. Feel bad for the kid.

They hung but not enough. Now Princeton is hanging with Arizona. I picked Arizona to win it all.

Alabama wins despite Miller scoring 0 points. 0-5 FG, 0-3 3P. :shock:

Apparently he's suffering from a groin injury.

Unable to watch but listened to the end. Sounds like the defense won it for them.

They play good ball in the Ivy and some of the kids even go to class. 15 seemed a low seed but I guess their out of conference record was not so great.

My final four is still intact. I've lost Arizona out of my Elite 8. I have Alabama, Marquette, Houston, and UCLA with Alabama beating Houston in the final.

I have Alabama winning over Houston with Kansas and Duke in the final four. So far, so good.
My elite 8 is intact and I’ve just lost UVA from 16

UVA has had so many memorable tournament exits over the last decade.

Tousan is supposed to be the top player among the grad student transfers next year, or maybe they were saying the whole set of announced/likely transfers. May be the best player to come out of England, or at least Newcastle.

As for Ivy ball, they never get a power conference at home (except Penn when they play a Temple or Villanova at the Palestra, which isn't really an away game for the opponents), so their out of conference records against quality oppnents are always going to be tough, but they tend to do well in neutral site tournaments. Yale had Kentucky tied at Rupp in december 5 minutes into the 2nd half, and in the NIT had Vandy at Vandy down 3 with 6 minutes left. Cornell I think came within a bucket of beating Miami at Miami.  UConn stopped its series with Yale when Jones started to beat them, and they can't get a game against BC anymore.
