UNC took their bench players and coaches to the locker room with 15 second left.  Good idea because a rush the court was coming.  In a classy way they went over and shook the other teams hands and went to the locker room and finished the game.  Never seen this happen before.

I am watching Kansas and Iowa State. Game features two of the best bigs in the country; Thomas Robinson for Kansas and Royce White for Iowa State

29-24 Iowa State with 6 to go in the half

Royce White has 10 points and 9 rebounds

Thomas Robinson 5 points and 3 rebounds

Shit this is what I hate about the college game. White picks up his second foul with 5 to go in the half and has to sit

I would like to see college go to 6 fouls, so players get to play.

Iowa State 43 Kansas 40 at half. Iowa State not the same team without White. ISU fortunate to be up 3 at the half. I don't like their chances for an upset

Royce White:10 points 10 rebounds 3 assists 2 blocks. 4 of 5 from floor

Thomas Robinson: 10 points 7 rebounds 1 assist 1 block. 4 of 10 from the floor

be ready for the 1-3-1 from Michigan after NU uses it today to take them down?  Will Michigan  even use the 1-3-1?  Should be an interesting game after both teams suffer losses to unranked teams today.

So where is everyone saying State sucks because they lost a road game in the best conference in the country???  Oh wait,  you mean that's not the end of the world?

Kansas was too deep for Iowa State. Big games from Withey and Tyshawn Taylor proved the difference. 82-73  Kansas

In the match-up of the to big guys, Royce White and Thomas Robinson, it is safe to say neither played their best, but both ended up with a double double

Royce White 18 points and 17 rebounds

Thomas Robinson 11 points and 14 rebounds

The Achilles Heal for both White and Robinson is foul shooting, but both look like they could become average, their form isn't that bad.

I was more impressed by the SDSU student section and entire arena than I have been by any crowd since the Illini crowd in their undefeated season.

Granted, I didn't watch the Indiana/Kentucky game and don't watch a whole lot of Duke or UNC.  But, wow - SDSU's entire crowd was on their feet and loud as hell the final 7+ minutes of that game.
