Glad for the Bonnies. Shouldn't have been in a PiG to begin with. Will be interesting to see what Florida team shows up for Thursday's game. I can just as easily see Florida going to the F4 as losing tomorrow.

Lincoln Memorial University(ranked No. 1 in Division II) lost to Queens and won't be going to the Final 8 in Sioux Falls,SD. They had beaten Queen's three times this season(including the post season League Tournament Championship Game) but lost the most important game.

Texas Southern won its first non-conference game of the year by beating North Carolina Central in the PIG. Previously they were 0-13 (all on the road).

The Tigers were one of 5 SWAC teams that did not win a non-conference game this year.

Only one Pac-12 team in the Field of 64:

When was the last time any Power 5 conference found themselves in that situation?

From Twitter:
Pac-12 is the only Power Six conf to start round of 64 with 1 team standing, and it has done that twice (2012 and 2018)

Wow, asked and answered. Thanks Deftones!

BTW : Even I didn't have enough confidence to advance a 1 Seeded KU team to the Final Four this year. Hope I'm wrong, but I doubt I am.

BTW : I looked up that 2012 bracket. The only Pac-12 team that year to make the field was Pac-12 newcomer and 11-seed (!) Colorado. (12 Seed Cal had been bounced in the PiG). What a terrible year for the conference that must have been.

The O/U for total P12 wins (including PiGs) was 3 (with extra juice on the Over no less). Hope nobody has the Over.

I figured Cuse was going to win that game. They always seem to slog through the season, barely get in (rightly or wrongly), then win at least a few games relying on the zone. I took them to beat TCU.

I work from home, so no need to take time off.

Meanwhile, my Wright State Raiders not looking so good.

Gonzaga escaped there. Two big shots, and survived the missed FTs.

Re: College Basketball 2018 Post-Season Thread - NCAAs, NIT

I am SO glad I missed the first half of the KU - Penn game. Kansas trailed by 10 early. I would have had a heart attack. I did watch the second half and they played pretty well though they did allow a couple of big Penn runs. I saw that late in the game that Penn had shot 10-11 from 3. That is only formula to have a 16 beat a 1, and one day it WILL happen -- just hope it's not to Kansas.

Watched the end of Zags - UNCG. That was some fun basketball. Too bad UNCG got a little sloppy late in the game or they coulda won.

Re: College Basketball 2018 Post-Season Thread - NCAAs, NIT

I still can't believe OU : They were gifted a Freshman phenom who becomes the first player in NCAA history to lead Div 1 in both scoring and assists and yet somehow still manage to lose their last 11 games outside of Norman. That is HARD to pull off.
I'm not a big "Fire the Coach!" guy, and I was a pretty big fan of Lon Kruger at UNLV, but man that is something he should really answer for. I wouldn't fault them at all for letting him go after that -- even though he (and Buddy Heald) took the Sooners to the Final Four just three years ago.

Other than one 8-0 Iona run, the Duke game was not that competitive.

Wow, that is a surprise. I thought Miami was pretty good this year from what I've seen of their ACC play.

The last minute of the Houston game was awesome. Back and forth 3s and then the sweet winning deuce. SDSU almost pulled off the Laettner shot.
