Put a $1 on the underdog to win each of the last five games today. Maybe I should have done that with Arkansas also. Nice comeback.

Yep. Always a day late and a dollar short.  Princeton looking good. The more I think about it the Arizona choke was almost as bad as Purdue. Princeton only shot 4-25 from three land. And still pulled the upset.

Ivy League deserved a higher seed.  They are a better conference than some who got higher seeds. But so be it. I think Harvard was the last Ivy to make the sweet sixteen. I believe Baylor or Creighton is next. That will be tough.

Wasn’t on national tv so does not count!  Bradley versus Cazzie Russel I believe.

You were right. Cornell in 2010. Harvard won a game two times last decade but no sweet sixteen.

Not a bad dozen years or so for the league from 2008 up to COVID.  From 2010-2019, 4 teams teams advanced to the round of 32 when none were a top 8 seed.  I think they were all double digits.

COVID hurt them a few ways.  The Yale team was pretty good in 2020 - had a couple of bigs who ended up playing serious minutes for Alabama and Notre Dame as grad transfers, another who played his year at Colorado, plus a terrific guard in Azar Swain. It would have been fun to see them in the tournament.  That team wasn't necessarily favorites to win the Ivy tournament because Harvard hosted the tournament and was very good too. Besides the 2020 NCAA tournament being cancelled, the Ivies cancelled the next season, too, so a lot of these upper class guys transferred.  It kind of killed some of the momentum from the prior decade, and left them with very inexperienced teams this year.  That especially hurt at the start of the year, when they were playing the non-conference schedule, always on the road when playing power conferences. Hurt the RPIs/BPIs. The upside, it may have led to under-seeding. I'm looking forward to seeing how the teams do next year in non-conference games.

I joined the CBS one.  I just pick local teams, a National’s school (SD state), or a school near a relative!

SD State looks like a good pick.

I’m taking the Wildcats in the next game  ;)

The K State guard duo of Noel and Johnson brings back memories of the Purple Popgun Pair from the mid 1970s. Chuckie Williams and Mike Evans. And that was before the three ball. Don’t think they made the Final Four.

The NCAA men’s game has gotten so physical it reminds me of when the gym coaches would have us play “Russian” basketball in high school. Contact allowed. Just no fill out tackling. Tennessee I noted yesterday literally had its defenders run right through the screeners. One time they knocked the screener down and no call. They know the officials can’t call everything. I still like the game but it’s just gotten too physical.
