Welcome to Bracketville---On to The Elite Eight Edition


Tony went a perfect four-for-four and leads the field. Hardy is two behind, with Carl and Eddie trailing by three. Tony has UNC, Eddie has the Jayhawks and Carl and Hardy have Kentucky.

Kidd-Gilchrist is a warrior for Kentucky...7-15, ten of ten from the line is pretty clutch. He may be the toughest match-up left in the tournament. Would you rather have Kidd-Gilchrist or UNC's Harrison Barnes on your team?

Indiana was better than I thought.

Barnes basically choked on two late shots in regulations was just 3-16 on the night.

Marshall or no Marshall, you hav
e to give those kids from Ohio major respect. UNC keeps throwing out a court full of McDonald's All Americans at them...and still need overtime to advance.

The Ohio/UNC game was one of those where I was cheering against my bracket picks.

Even with those eyesore uniforms, Baylor may have the athletes capable of competing with Kentuck
y. They escaped Xavier due a fast start---they hung on. In single-elimination, that's
all that counts.

Foul trouble, depth and inside scoring doomed NC State. Jeff Withey of Kansas stepped up (or should I say, jumped up) and blocked ten attempts.

Even with three of their most productive players (Wood, Howell and Brown), going 7-34, State hung in there with heart and passion until the final seconds.

Two most interesting and potentially entertaining games on tap today...neither one subjecting us to Clark Kellogg.

The four games today and tomorrow are worth four points each.
