Michigan State's easy path got even easier. Situations like these bring out the conspiracy theorist in me
NCAA Evening Open Thread
Albany guy just got kneed in the head.
Albany's pG just got hammered in the head. Might have to sit out due to concussion protocols. That sucks, Albany is hanging touch with Florida, they really are (were?).
10-0 run by the Hens
Every time I see a mid-major with a skilled big man, I get mad. I have no clue why we can't get a 5 that can block shots and/or generate offense in the post.
He is sitting on our bench.
(1) He's on the bench (2) I see him as more of a skilled 4. He doesn't really have a back-to-the-basket game, and he's not a shot blocker.
I'm not sure msu's path actually got easier, cincinatti can't score.
Either can MSU when they don't have a clear advantage in size. Cinci had some defenders to throw at Payne.
I think it got easier. Cincinatti matched up much better with MSU than Harvard does. I was really surprised to see Harvard win that game. I know they were the trendy pick, but Cincy was great at times this year.
MSU has a cool 69.23% for an eFG% at halftime, which I don't know if you can compare to Delaware's rather 'meh" 45.00%. It's rather the same thing with OREB% - Delaware is sitting at 15.00% and MSU has 41.67%, but then Delaware doesn't seem to believe in rebounding in general, offensive or defensive. If MSU hadn't committed 10 TOs, this probably isn't a 44-33 game, I think.
Lots of dumb turnovers. They've stepped on the baseline at least twice, and dribbled out of bounds a time or two.
Trice...I just can't stand that little dude. I hate how he looks, too.
Him and Valentine ... can't stand them. I really don't mind the players on their team that are actually good.
Only the King could make that shot. lol
MSU needs to take care of business first. Delware keeping it semi-close and they seem like a streaky shooting team. And Yakkity-Sax moments like Trice's fumbling tournover won't help.
Usher just needs to do it his way.
Lol haha...on a serious note, msu looks like a lock to the sweet sixteen with them playin Harvard saturday.
Elvis Costello eh Doug?
When did he start looking like an 80 year old woman? Guy looks sick.
Right around the time John Beilein started whoppin' his ass.
Delaware is officially done for. Sparty gets Harvard and a spot in the Sweet 16 made especially for them. God I hope the rest of that bracket is up to the task of knocking them off...Virginia, Iowa State, UNC.
Yep. Can't believe how lucky Staee is.
Wow that was one of the dumbest basketball plays I've ever seen. Deleware guy gets the ball on the block, no one between him and the basket but another teammate and he doesnt even look to the rim, instead passed it out. Must be out of it.
Payne is 17-17 from the line. That's nuts.
MSU might give up 80 points to Delaware.
Nice Lebron-esqe flop with all the fake facial expressions and head bobs.
lol wtf was that call
I have St Joe's beating UConn. Please happen!
Uconn is going to hang on here, it looks like.
My brackets are toast
NC State is just falling apart at the end here.
Epic choke job by the Wolfpack. Truly epic.
C'mon NC St.
I really underestimated the A-10 apparently, I have them with zero wins in this tourney.
These are the worst free throw shooting teams i have seen. This is truly pathetic
Don't think anyone wants to win the NC State - St Louis game
NC St choked on applesauce!
Remind me to never pick a Mark Gottfried team to win a game in the NCAA Tournament again. His Alabama teams were the kings of underachieving, shooting themselves in the foot, dumb mistakes, you name it.
Please take the to OT North Dakota St!
come on ND St!
Epic finish to the Red Wings game. OT winner with less than 1 second left.
Milwaukee and Villanova tied at 10 with 8 minues left...uhhhhhhh
