The one thing I notice about them is they keep it close. But as soon as the other team goes on a late run, they fold like a cheap suit. It's going to be a great tournament though. College hoops is STILL the best game in town.
Yeah it seems they're somewhat lacking in the killer instinct department. They let Pitt physically beat them up and in tonight's game against 'Cuse they seemed to let up whenever they had the lead. They would move the ball down and score when the game was tight but as soon as they had the lead they'd take a bunch of time passing the ball around the perimeter and then force themselves into taking bad forced shots as the shot-clock ran low. I'm sure Calhoun will be proud of the way they fought tonight but I think he'll also have a lot to say to them.
I agree with you about the NCAA, the college game is much better than the NBA.
It wouldnt surprise me if Nova knocks out Loui, they havent really impressed me this season, especially after ND took them out behind the woodshed this season. Uconn is definitely missing Dyson, I was hoping one of the 2 backups would step up, but they cant get it done. It's all about the matchups, seems like there's about 6 teams that could win it, but depends on who plays who. I'm just hoping Pitt goes out West again.
As I said a couple weeks ago, UCONN, in my opinnion, doesnt have to much of a shot anymore without Dyson. They'll go a couple rounds in the Tourney but Id be kinda surprised if they make it past the Elite 8.
Trying my best to put my bias aside....when it comes down to it all, its UNC's NCAA Tournament to lose. Lawson was still in a boot yesterday so I hope they dont let him play the next game. He needs as much rest as possible before the tourney starts. A healthy foot'd Lawson together with Hansbourgh will be one heII of a hard team to beat.
