1 vs. 2, 1 vs... 11? UCLA out of nowhere, from the play-in spot.

And the Cincinnati fans here are despondent, watching their native son and ex-coach Cronin making it back where they only went once under Huggins (while they themselves have a dumpster fire occurring)...

Turns out recruiting 5 stars matters a lot more than who your coach is. Cronin made the right move heading out there.

No ACC, Big Ten, SEC or Big East in the Final 4. You hate to see it. Big 12 is in but not with Kansas. Two "mid major" conferences have reps with Gonzaga having a great chance to win it all. This might be my favorite tourney ever.

Also curious how they fare against USC's interior defense. If Kispert/Suggs are off from outside, USC could have a chance.
Lol, guess not...at one point the Zags had a 20+ point lead while being 3-10 from 3.

I really like Drew Timme's game (except the constant mugging of blowing kisses to the crowd after dunks). Second coming of Larry Bird? I don't know if he's quick enough or bulky enough to succeed in the NBA but he's sure fun to watch in college.

They had more points in the paint than USC had points at almost half time

I think he's stroking his ironically "cool" mustache.

Dude was scared to death of Jonathan last night. Timme was a non-factor, which I loved seeing. During the intros my wife looked at him and said "this guy must be a huge douche".
