I've seen a few times (while keeping other eyes on my other tv, so I've only seen a couple minutes of this game) where Asheville has some pretty ball movement in and out of that "vaunted" 2-3 zone. 'Cuse has their hands full at the moment. This team won a game last year and isn't afraid of a Big Bad Big East team.

I'm not saying one single thing. I'm just saying if you aren't watching UNC-Ashville - Syracuse, maybe you should.
Kid plays for UNC-Ashville. Hmmm. Interesting. That's just the way it is?!?!
was fab melo really that good / important?
I haven't watched Cuse a ton this year but I feel he is offensively challenged. Doesn't rebound as well as a guy his size should either. Blocks alot of shots though. He'd probably already have a double-double against Asheville seeing they're terrible at rebounding. He'd make a big difference in this game IMO, but not for Cuse' chances overall. I had them losing in the Sweet 16 anyways. Almost had them bowing out in the second round.
I think I'm gonna be a UNC-Ashville fan the rest of the day
wouldn't this be a great way to open the first day of the tournament? I still think SU comes back to win, but who cares if they don't.
I think Syracuse finally got the memo that if they drive to the hole they will likely score or get FTs. Not sure what took them so long.
Holy shit is that bad plastic surgery. She is unrecognizable.
Yes, I hadn't seen her for a long time, then did a few months ago and had to do a major double take. I don't know much about plastic surgery, and whether that is actually bad, or just extreme. Seems sometimes moderation works better.
First upset of the tournament: Wisconsin scores 73 points.
UNC Asheville is basically doing the same thing every time: pass it inside, draw the extra defender, kick it back out to the open shooter. Once Syracuse stops doubling down on the inside pass, UNC-A will probably find it harder to score, unless they have someone who can take his man 1 on 1 down low, which, I don't think so. Also, UNC-A's top 3 scorers each have 2 fouls. This game is going to be all Syracuse in the second half.
$3.99 has been totally worth it to be able to watch while I'm at work.
$0.00 is worth it as well.
I've been convinced for this entire basketball tournent season that I knew a girl who runs for UNC Asheville, when actually she runs for another UNC campus.
What's sad to me is that Asheville isn't really playing all that well IMO. Turning the ball over alot, giving up offensive boards and fouling like quite a bit. Part of this is due to them just being completely overmatched athletically and in length. However, when they shoot the ball inside the 3 point line, they're knocking them down.
New Mexico and LBSU looks like its gonna be an offensive explosion lmao
Love this quote from Grantland live NCAA blog...
Here's a tweet from @OtterVonBismark: March Madness needs more Celine Dion references. Who is the Titanic of the Midwest bracket?
Man, what an awesome Twitter handle. Great work, @OtterVonBismark. The unsinkable ship of the Midwest is, of course, UNC, while NC State is Leonardo DiCaprio and Kansas is Kate Hudson, who escapes. The Crimson Tide are the crazy poor people who party in the lower deck, Georgetown is the arrogant rich dude, and Michigan is the iceberg.
Asheville robbed of at least one point
Worst missed goal tending I have ever seen.
That was a huge three by UNC-Ashville.
Tommy Amaker is down early to Vanderbilt.
Need one more run by Asheville but they're running out of steam...come on
I refuse to acknowledge those early games as "Round One". What a sham!!!
I'm about to transfer to UNCA for psychology. GO BULLDOGS. Been living in Asheville for the past few years.
Still not over. It's a shame that Asheville seems to be getting the short end of the stick with some of the calls. Dickey got bodied on that missed layup, the missed goaltending gost them 2 points, and there were a couple fouls on the Bulldogs that I didn't think were warrented. Maybe I'm just looking through my underdog glasses. UNCA still had the opportunity to win this game.
NO 5 seconds?!
Another unlucky call against the Bulldogs!!!
Wow...this grey haired official is killing ashville every change he gets. This guys tourny should be down after this game. He is on Jim Burr levels at this point.
Wow. Another bad call. I think this ref has Syracuse in the final 4 in his bracket.
and a clear out of bounds off of the cuse missed....what a fucking joke
The lane violation was a lane violation. The announcers are looking at the wrong guy. But WTF was that out of bounds call?!?!?
The official pointed at Prim and the FT line though. And that's who he talked to.
Well, he got it right by accident then. Clearly the Asheville guy has a foot in the lane before the ball left the shooter's hand.
FUCK these refs...FUCK them hard
So if UNC-Ashville loses I'm blaming it on the officiating. They fucking got hosed.
The worst officiating I have ever seen in the Syracuse - UNC Asheville game.
Know there going to be a lot of bitter and angry people over those last calls which favored Cuse, but at least my bracket isn't busted
Cuse was going to Elite Eight anyway, or at least the Sweet 16.
Reggie Miller is PISSED.
I would be too if this crap was happening.
This is god-awful officiating. I'm sorry it's bullshit and they know it themselves. They're aiding the advancing of the 1 seed. Any other explanation?!
Absolutely stole an opportunity from Asheville. What a fucking disgrace.
UNCA just got royally screwed. Who knows what would have happened had the refs not made either bad call, much less both.
they may still have lost, but asheville got screwed by the officiating.
I don't give a fuck how it happened.
When did Keith Sergott start calling basketball games?
