I think this whole SEC BS is just to get me mad before #4 vs #13 in Spokane.
You Ivy Leaguers are too smart for that I hope.

Good start by Yale.  Really dumb play by the Auburn player to get thrown out.

yale has had a lot of errors. I wouldn't call them unforced because Auburn's D puts the pressure on forcing the bad passes, but the turnovers and missed layups are killing them. Wolf and Mbeng have these days where they just do not hit their shots. Also, those missed free throws have hurt in the past. Pace has been good. Not a bad half, but should be 2-3 point game

Still hanging but can’t make the threes.

March Madness baby.  Auburn had so many chances. Unfortunately it ended at about the same time as Colorado/Florida.

Basketball twitter is sure having a fun time with Sankey's pre-tournament comments about wanting fewer auto-bids.

heart still working. I love watching Mbeng on D. As for Poulakidas, his entire game is step back jumpers. Not going to drive by you. Nice to see him go off.

JMU looks great early on. Stifling defense.

I heard that Yale couldn't send their band so the Yale band at the game was actually Idaho's, in Yale sweaters.

William and Mary hires Brian Earl as its new men's BB coach. Led Cornell to a 22-8 record last year and a birth in the NIT.

is Wiliam and Mary D1?

Earl is very good. He's losing some seniors, but otherwise Cornell is a good program. I wouldn't think this was a step up

this has happened before. The year Yale beat Baylor in Providence, the pep band was from a New Haven high school. Jones I think liked the high school band better than the Yale Precision Marching Band

Yes. Only one of a handful of schools who have never made the NCAA tourney. Yea seems weird.  Not a step up.  Earl is a Princeton guy.  Will try not to hold that against him.

William and Mary, Citadel, and West Point are the only teams in existence at the start of the NCAA tournament system who have never made it.

W&M competes in the CAA. Their football program has gotten better in recent years, hopefully this is a good sign for the basketball program as well.

Next three game parlay is Yale +13.5, JMU +5.5 and Houston minus 23.5.
That worked out. Playing with funny money now.
