March Madness Update

On March 26, 2010, in Uncategorized, by admin

March Madness resumed last night. The games were truly amazing once again. Another top seed fell to a number 5 seed. A number 6 seed gave a 2 seed all they could handle in K State’s double overtime win Xavier. One Cinderella story team sees the glass slipper drop and shatter at the hands of a number 1 seed. Truly March Madness is living up to its name this year. The games continue tonight with interesting story lines of their own. There is still a 10 seed in the sweet sixteen. St Mary’ plays Baylor, a 3 seed, tonight in Houston. Of course, Baylor has a story all of its own as a program that has risen from the ashes of near death penalty to being in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in school history. BU also can boast of having mens and womens teams in the Sweet Sixteen this year as well. Just when you think, however, that the ‘branded’ school basketball programs have fallen out due to the extreme number of lower seed teams going deep in the dance this year, there still are those branded teams still in the waltz. Purdue squares off with Duke tonight. Duke is the other remaining 1 seed in the tourney beside Kentucky. Of course, regular powerhouse Tennessee is still in and playing this evening as well, albeit, seeded lower this year than normal. The other lower seed underdog is Northern Iowa, a 9 seed. Again, interesting year indeed. I do hope to see the Cinderella story continue for at least one of these lower seeds to make it to the Elite 8, I just do not wish it to be St. Mary’s against my BU team. A relative home court advantage for Baylor will certainly help. And I do know, in spite of some of the reports that BU fans cannot support the team in numbers, even in their own back yard in Houston, I beg to differ. I believe you will see a outcry of support at the game tonight. Tune in. I know I will be with my favorite beverage and pizza of choice. Mine will be our new Chicago style pizza joint nearby that is, well, truly Chicago style pizza.
