More voting! (As if the EA Sports one didn't wear us out). Anyways, the NCAA has realased the fan voting part of the Naismith Vote. The Naismith Trophy is awarded to the best overall player in the nation, and is presented during the Final Four week. It's the basketball eequivelent of the Heisman Trpohy. It is very unique because fan voting counts for 25 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. So this one is actually pretty important to participate in.
It is between Michigan's Trey Burke, Indiana's Victor Oladipo, Georgetown's Otto Porter Jr., and Creighton's Doug McDermott. The link to where you can vote is HERE.
Vote for Burke, and Go Blue!
Michigan will face the winner of Kansas/UNC this afternoon, as we all know. In March, its not all about the better seed being a harder game, its about the matchups. We all saw that against VCU, a matchup that weighed in our favor.
So who do we want to face: Kansas or UNC?
Just under an hour until the Madness resumes,so I was rewatching the highlights from the VCU dismantling. I kept replaying the McGary pick that destroyed/annihilated the VCU kid.
I'm pretty sure the first thought he had was, "did anyone get the number of that truck?"
I know this because, once during a pick-up BB game, I forgot I was playing outside and introduced my face to the basket support while attempting a finger-roll lay-up. Result: bad.
Yes, I suck at basketball.
My question is: what is the hardest you've ever been hit and can you create a meme or GIF to memorialize the McGary "Stonewall" moment?
1. He hit him so hard his children will need dental work...
Contribute, enjoy; Go Blue!
EDIT: changed the title for clarity and to pay homage to Al Jolson and James Cagney.
Michigan is sitting pretty awaiting the Kansas/UNC winner.

The shockers pull off the shocker.
I didn't see one yet, and I thought having a forum for general discussion of the evening games suvh as Butler / Marquette and Gonzaga / Wichita State (among others) might be convenient for all.
