Barring a slew of upsets, I would expect the West final to be the late game Saturday and the East final to be the late game Sunday.

Yeah that's what I am thinking. If Duke loses tomorrow that West final will be the first game. well maybe not if it is Florida v. Wisconsin that may be the first game. The networks 'nightmare' will be that game and Arizona vs. SDSU. Not from my viewpoint but I gotta think they want 1 or 2 of the following: Duke, BYU, Butler, UConn to be in those games

KU has a relative cakewalk to the final, so they can only screw themselves if they don't make it there. I'm kind of stunned that their odds and OSU's and Duke's odds are roughly equal. OSU and Duke face much tougher roads.

Re: College Hoops, NCAA Tournament Regional Semifinals/Finals, March 24-27

Oh, I know how amazingly open their road got last weekend. I'm just pretty sure they were jinxed by getting the SI endorsement.

I did find it interesting what they say for the finale vs tOSU:

"If both teams play to their potential, Kansas will win. The question, then, is whether Kansas will play to its potential. Under Self the Jayhawks are one of those teams that gets better the deeper it goes into the tournament. Once it reaches the grandest stage in Houston, I expect this team to rise to the occasion."

Why the hell are the West games earlier than the Southeast? Badger game starts when I'm usually getting ready for bed.

And I hope if they win it's the late game Saturday, since I'll be at the NCAA hockey regional in GB with a game that starts 40 minutes after the 1st basketball regional.

Likely because CBS had 1st choice and wanted the West (given the marquee teams) and the CBS tip times are going to be earlier so they can get off the air as early as possible for late local news.

And prepare to be disappointed Saturday because the West (with Duke and/or UConn) will very likely be the latter game Saturday.

If KU doesn't at least make the Final Four I'll never hear the end of it from my brother. If they can get there, which they should, then I think Self will have them focused and the Morris twins will be men on a mission.

Heavy action on the Aztecs today....line went from +1 to -2.5. That's quite a move over the course of 9 or so hours.

That's one costly technical foul.

Aztecs are in big trouble. I'm sure the bookies aren't complaining.

Great steal and pass there. I really wish these games were staggered a little more.

The technicals in both these games were game-changers, when it came to momentum.
