Some thoughts

  • This week the number #1 seed is going to be real interesting.  I think people are going to be 50-50.  In my humble opinion, Pittsburgh deserves to be #1 because for the 2nd time this season, they beat UCONN WHILE they were #1!  Incredible.  Yeah sure UNC got their regular season ACC title (yawn), but who did they beat?  Duke.  Yawn.   Think of it this way…DeJuan Blair always seems to bring it hard against the best big men in the country.    If UNC played Pitt, couldn’t you just see Blair flipping Physco-T over his shoulder onto the floor?
  • So Louisville wins the BIG EAST regular season title, yet is the 3rd BIG EAST team in the rankings….go figure.
  • TWO Loss teams during the week: Marquette, LSU, Purdue
