Is the tip-off approximate because they’ll wait for one game to end before starting the next? I’m used to that when they’re in the same arena, but this surprised me—guess it makes sense now that we’re down to just 2 games per day.

Yes I think Loyola is a better story, and making final 4 would be great. However, with where we are at now and UM a possible opponent next I switch to best for UM. I personally think it’s KSU.

We will find out tonight, but teams like A&M, FSU, KSU seem like teams who are physical and grind it out. Somewhat offensively challenged. I think those teams great for UM. Teams that can go small, spread you out, and have multiple scorers/shooters seems worse to me. Basically a poor mans Nova squad. Much scarier than KSU. Thoughts?

The basketball fan in me would love to see Loyola win, but the Michigan fan in me has to root for KSU.  Loyola will be everyone's darling in the Final Four if they make it there and neutrals will root for them.

Come on Wildcats.

I’m rooting Loyola. Hedging my bets. I think should we win tonight we could definitely beat them. Even if we lose though that would awesome for them to win the whole dang thing.

If Michigan plays to their level should be able to handle these teams so I’m still going underdog/Cinderella.

Fat Charles Albert Barkley just said he’s going with FSU with the upset. He said their big boys down inside is going to wear our Michigan. Didn’t he say the same thing about TAMU... How did the work out for your Charles?

Usually you don’t see a defensive grind it out team win championships or even make final 4’s. Hard to spring 4 wins together with grind it out close games not getting over 65. This is why Loyola and UM had the upper hand today, how it shakes out you never know in a 1 game format. But definitely advantage. Gotta make shots. Gotta have multiple guys make shots. Some games you can get by without, but can’t do it every game.

Also, when you get this late, teams have all won 3+ games in a row. Offense teams get rhythm and the grind it D teams in trouble.

Forget the rules. If a defender is standing straight up and not moving, and the ball handler jumps into him, how is that ever a blocking foul??? Why does it matter where he’s standing? You can’t foul somebody if you don’t move.
