Hang in there, VCU!!
VCU up 6, 1:40 to go!
Wow! I just woke up and saw Posnanski's Tweets about the game so I turned it on. This is amazing!
You should have been watching earlier
They've got this! VCU is going to take down Kansas!
EDIT: And yeah, you should have been watching earlier, Inty.
Under 30 seconds to go, VCU up 8 and two free throws coming!
Less than half a minute away from no 1-seeds remaining!
You missed the part where I was sleeping!
This is awesome. I guess the selection committee that let VCU in the tournament over Colorado and VTech really does now that the ball is round?
Let's see... sleep, or watching VCU take down Kansas. Sleep, or VCU taking down Kansas. Yeah, forget sleep
lol @ all of our brackets
lol @ Kansas
CAA basketball FTW!!
And VCU doesn't just beat Kansas. They THROTTLE Kansas.
Butler vs VCU in the Final Four!!
And Kansas goes down by double digits!
LONG LIVE THE COMMONWEALTH!
So this means either a #11 or a #8 seed is going to the championship game?
Yup. If VCU beats Butler, they'll either be the first team to win six tournament games and not win a championship or they'll be the first team to win seven games in a single tournament.
I wonder what kind of payout you could have gotten when brackets were announced on a $1 bet on VCU to win the region?
Horizon vs. CAA and Big East vs. ACC/SEC
What a Final Four. It's 2006 on Steroids.
Best case scenario for the Kentucky-North Carolina game: every high school basketball player in the country has a "ugh, I don't want to ever go one of those schools" reaction.
Glorious. I'm thoroughly disappointed that I missed this game as I was off on a hike this morning.
Kentucky up 8.... Henson has 4 fouls and Barnes has 3 as well. Where are all our resident Tar Heel fans?
Yeah ... UNC keeps making a mini-run to make it close, but UK keeps answering to keep them at bay.
And Harrison Barnes finally decided to have a bad tournament game. It's like he realized if he kept playing well and channeling Carmelo, he'd end up in Cleveland.
Edit: I make have spoken too soon about Barnes ...
I was at work and then had to get dinner. But I'm here for the big finish.
I really don't like pulling for Kentucky. But I have to in this game *shudder*
I really don't like pulling for North Carolina. But I have to in this game *shudder*
I'd be saying that were it Florida instead.
Kentucky by 1, under a minute to go. Hits a 3! Now up by 4! And a foul on UNC with 18.8 seconds to go!
EDIT: bye bye, Henson!
That was a two ... but an absolutely horrible offensive set by Carolina culminating in a horrible shot by Barnes.
edit ... or maybe it was a three. I don't think it could be any closer. wow.
Correction: it was a 3. Too close to call from most angles, but then one angle clearly showed about 2 millimeters of space between the line and the shoe.
Gooooooooo UConn! But lose to the winner of VCU/Butler!
