Awesome game. Didn't think Wisky could come back after Nova got up 7. Battled through the foul trouble.

Having your PG dribble the ball and run the shot clock down ultimately ending up with your PG having to take a desperation 3 is the college basketball version of the prevent defense.

Hart did not come up in the clutch today. He walked if anything before the stop.

Wisky should have never been an 8.

Duke's road to Phoenix just became smoother.

Meanwhile, clear path for Duke now. Ugh.

Northwestern is the only school in Div I that has played in and posted a perfect undefeated record in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournaments since the tourney's inception in 1939.

I don't think that having another team from you conference advance in the Tourney makes much difference to the Big XII. Best as I can figure, University of Kansas Atheletic Department has an approximate annual revenue of about $100M which puts them in 23rd place of all Universities (Texas is the big dog in the Big XII and 2nd overall). Oklahoma made the Final Four last year (the first non-Kansas appearance by a Big XII school since 2004) and best as I can figure that run brought the Big XII $9.5M so that's an even $1M per school - certainly not chump change, but hardly enough money to make or break a Power Five conference.

I think the real answer as to why my fellow alums root for other Big XII schools isn't about potential revenue but rather because it makes our conference look stronger in the national spotlight (they were intently watching the other Big XII-SEC challenge when all I cared about was KU - UK). I understand that, but still find it hard to root for other teams that are rivals unless there's a compelling player or story-line involved -- like Buddy Hield last year.

Re: College Hoops Postseason 2017 (NCAAs, NIT, etc.)

Hell, if anything I was ambivalent when Lehigh and McCollum beat Duke in 2012. I can't stand Lehigh. I didn't want Lehigh to benefit from it (and I wanted Bucknell to have the only Patriot tourney wins). That it was Duke made it somewhat palatable. And was so happy that Lehigh could not beat Xavier in the next round. It was great exposure for the Patriot League, but much bigger for Lehigh.

I root for the conference in NOV/DEC to build up SOS. Not in March.

And as a Terps fan, hated seeing Wisky winning today. Just like I how hated seeing ACC teams win in March when they were in the ACC.

It was a bad no call but you can't give away points like that.

Good lord that was bad. Collins needs to keep himself in check at this juncture but damn, hard to blame him. That's as bad as it gets.

Glad NW lost, but also glad they made it very entertaining.

Is it me or does Xavier make the S16 practically every year, no matter the coach. Beat down in Orlando.

FSU getting blown out by an 11 seed is the least surprising development of the tourney so far.

It just 'feels' that way, Bill. Gillen, Prosser, Matta, Miller, Mack, etc....

They were simply awful the last month - could only beat DePaul. Now look like world beaters.
