So, Miller arrested when he gets back to campus?
No his shots were all well off target.

One of these teams will be in the championship:
San Diego State, Creighton, Princeton, Florida Atlantic or Kansas State

Tonight he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I had no one seeds in my final four.  Have UConn meeting Miami in one semi which is looking good so far. Unfortunately had Arizona and Duke as the others with Arizona winning it all.

Houston lost 3 games during the regular season in a non Power 5 conference. Kansas 8. Purdue and Alabama lost 6. So these were not the dominant one seeds from past years.

Miami finished tied with UVA at 15-5 in the ACC. Normally that would get you at least a two seed but considered a down year for the conference. Kansas State was tied for third in the Big XII and only a game behind Kansas. Creighton lost more games than the others (12) but finished third in the Big East and were ranked most of the year.  San Diego State was also ranked most of the year and won the Mountain West. The only real surprises to me would be Princeton or Florida Atlantic.

I've yet to watch a whole game this tournament, but I might tune into Princeton and Creighton. Personally, I'd like to see Princeton suit up in tiger-striped road unis. Maybe black fronts and backs, with Tiger pattern down the sides and trim on the shorts. Their unis are classics, but it would work for them with orange and black colors. LSU, not so much.
could use more stripes

Clark Kellogg noted the other night how the NBA is a big man’s league and yet the smaller guards can dominate in the NCAA. Wong and Pack for Miami. Noell for K State. He brings back memories of Khalid El-Amin.  Or maybe Kemba Walker.

Does he realize that Steph is listed at 6’2 185?

Sure but if you look at the top ten MVP guys any given year almost everyone except Steph is at least 6’7”.

Mitchell is 6’1, Dame is 6’2, Kyrie is 6’2, Ja is 6’2, calling Paul 6’1 is accepting at least a couple inches of embellishment. It’s rare, but not unheard of for guys that height to be great

True.

Here is the MVP vote last year. First six are bigger guys. Then the smaller guards 7,8 and 9.

So no one sees in the Elite Eight for first time ever. And Texas is the only two seed left. They look good early.

So Princeton can score but can't stop Creighton.  They are smart and should be able to figure it out.

Put up a good fight but couldn’t get stops. Who had Creighton as the only Big East team to make the final 8?

Oops. I forgot Connecticut was back in the Big East.

Two Big East teams eliminated in the semifinals of the BE tournament are in the elite 8, while the two teams who played in the championship are out.

Basketball is weird. :)

But Gonzaga is the higher seed so if they lose it’s another upset. Right?
