    Big East is rather unimpressive, eh?

    1. Louisville LOST in the round of 64 to #13 seed Morehead State.
    2. Pitt, a #1 seed, LOST in the round of 32 to #8 seed Butler.
    3. Georgetown LOST in the round of 64 to a #11 seed Virginia Commonwealth.
    4. Saint Johns LOST in the round of 64 to a #11 seed Gonzaga.
    5. Villanova LOST to #9 seed George Mason in the round of 64.
    6. West Virginia LOST to Kentucky in the round of 32.
    7. Cincinnati LOST to UConn in the round of 32.
    8. Connecticut advanced to the Sweet 16.
    9/10. Marquette will play Syracuse in the round of 32 - one will go to the Sweet 16, one will be knocked out.
    11. Notre Dame will play in the round of 32 today.

    So, at best, there will be 3 Big East teams in the sweet 16, which wouldn't seem awful given that 11/64 ~ 1/6th of the team,s and 3/16 > 1/6. But considering it was supposed to be full of powerhouses, this has been a mediocre showing at best, including 4 first-round exits, all of which came against non-BCS schools.

    Good, that should open the door for UCF knocking hard for an invitation.

    Nothing new for the Big East.

    Hell of an ending in the Zona-Texas game.

    Apparently, VCU was offended when everyone was saying they didn't belong in the tournament. They've probably been the most impressive team in the tournament, thus far.

    Down goes Syracuse.

    And it looks bleaker for a BE team to win the title. ND plays FSU tonight.

    Am I criminal for picking Syracuse to win it all? What a shame.

    lol @ the fact that Marquette and UCONN are the only BE teams to make the S16.

    My bracket has officially been busted. My national championship teams and 3 of the 4 Final Four teams still are alive, but everything else is in the red.

    Mine's the same way except the fact that 2 of my Final Four teams are gone and my champ is gone. Lol, I don't know anything about college basketball though, I was just guessing based upon limited knowledge and seeding.

    And those teams got in because they beat Big East teams in the round of 32.
    I guess Charles Barkley was right when he called the conference the Big Least.

    At least I'm sneaking into a mid-table position which is fine given my lack of knowledge

    for some reason im still in first... I had Purdue and Pitt advancing to the elite 8 and that didnt plan out.. The SouthEast and SouthWest are mostly in red

    Brandon Knight continues to make Broward County proud. This kid is going to be something special in the NBA. Hopefully he stays another year, I think he could be the number 1 overall pick by his junior year.
  16. Im so nervous...

    So FSU failed to get a shot off at the end of the 1st and 2nd half (to win), then OT (to win).
  18. That layup that Kitchen passed off on was makeable in retrospect. But I could see how in the heat of the moment it looked like he could get blocked.

    Oh well. ESPN got their Cinderella. They're happy.
