Princeton with the 15 over 2 upset!

 

Second time Arizona lost as a #2 seed. At least last time they could say their opponent was led by Steve Nash. I doubt there's a future NBA MVP on Princeton's roster.

Houston's really banged up. They were lucky they played a team that didn't have the depth to really punish them for it (Northern KY shot a horrific 3pt%). Also, it's odd the selection committee would make Houston play a 2nd round game vs a 9 seed when said 9 seed's campus is a hundred miles from the arena the 2nd round matchup will be played.

Liking my Tex bet to win that region. Sprinkled Auburn futures bet early in the year but I dont rrally like them. I think Hou stil prob survives the top part of that region. Maybe Miami knocks them off

My guess is Auburn's guards win against Houston Saturday. That's easily the easiest bracket (particularly with Houston so banged up), so yeah, Texas looks good (in the ESPN Tourney challenge, I have Texas beating Houston to reach the FF).

Caught the last few minutes of that game and Arizona's offense was atrocious in that stretch. They couldn't get the ball to their big guys and just kept jacking up bad shots. Princeton could have won by more than four; they had a couple wide-open looks in those final minutes from three and couldn't knock them down.

Michigan State beat USC.  That was a good game of future conference rivals.

Just a copy and paste there, no effort.  
I kind of like the NIT once you get past the 1st round.   

Once teams decide they actually want to play, it gets pretty good.

Yeah, the motivation part is pretty weird but some good ball for the most part. Like that it’s at home arenas for the added atmosphere.
