I'm not sure Edey's style will work in the NBA, but it sure is tough to beat with collegians.

He’s projected as a late first round pick. Defensive 3 seconds alone changes his game.

a stronger, more athletic Tacko Fall.

Tacko was a heck of a college player. Defensive player of the year in college, won a game in the NCAAs, high % shooter.

NC State being in the final four is a 1 in 23,512 chance, lower than the odds of being struck by lightning:

I thought the odds of being struck by lightning is 1 in 300,000? Maybe that's the odds of dying from a lightning strike.

odds of being struck in any given year is 1/1.2 million. That's the basis of 1 in a million risk standards in the US.

The foul at the end ruined it for me. I’ve never seen that call on what should have been the last ply of the game

She pretty clearly pushed off.  And I saw a still shot and her feet were set so far apart almost like she was going to do the splits.  But if MJ was coming off the screen they probably don’t call it. Or Caitlin.

For the past two rounds, the refs have been in the tank for Iowa. I’m expecting major foul trouble for all of SC by half time.

And the run is over. NC State could not match on size or outside shooting. Could be the second time a 1 loses to a 16 and comes back the next season to win it all.

Good game for 30-35 minutes or so. Should be a great matchup for the finals.

I'm not sure how that goes for a guy who needs overwhelming talent to compete

Once upon a time he used to coach.  Maybe he can find that again.

this is reminiscent of when Villanova ran through the tournament a few years ago.

Most dominating tournament performance ever. Amazing run for UCONN.
