Today’s Live Blogs: NCAA Tournament, Second Round (3/17/07)
Posted by Mike on March 17, 2007
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I can’t believe we’ve gone through the entire first round of the NCAA without a single upset. The ultimate example of how past success has little bearing on future results. VCU and Winthrop can still surprise us. Wait, no! I have Oregon in my Final Four! Don’t do it, Winthrop!
3:20 pm: #5 Butler vs. #4 Maryland. After disposing of cold-shooting Old Dominion, can Butler shut down Maryland’s transition game?
5:45 pm: #7 Boston College vs. #2 Georgetown. If the Hoyas win, it helps my bracket. If the Eagles win, it helps my beloved Tar Heels. I can’t lose in this one!
8:15 pm: #9 Michigan State vs. #1 North Carolina. On Tar Heel Mania. When UNC has a mental lapse, even a team like Eastern Kentucky can have a 32-9 tear on them. The Heels got away with a comfortable victory in spite of the lapse on Thursday; the Spartans will not be nearly as forgiving if it happens again.
