Not sure if the Liveblog continues today. Big Big game today. Advancing the program, or treading water. And of course we get the only 5 seed to survive, so match-ups don't come closer than this. Rest of the bracket doesn't look like world beaters if we win today. One down, five to go. Go Blue!

A bit concerned that this is a mirage because VCU is shooting so poorly and not setting up the press. That being said, that was a great half.

That 20-6 run was definitely partly fueled by them not being able to get set up ever..but it's not like them getting setup was helping much before. They were still down by 3-5 when they were getting setup

First 5 minutes of this half will tell a lot about how the game is going to end

beating their trap with ease.   maybe the maturity to hang in the big games is finally clicking, and it doesn't hurt that mcgary is scary.  go blue.

The last few games have cemented in my mind how limited Mitch was early in the season. All the rumors about his leg injury playing a huge role in his development are being proven with these performances.

Early in the season, he was in the right place coming off the bench, but right now, he is definitely in the right spot...in the starting lineup. If he can stay out of foul trouble, he should play 25-30 minutes each game the rest of the tournament.

That halftime report might have been the most boring I've ever watched.  Barkely and and the rest of the crew look and act like they're very depressed.
