    Wow! I just woke up and saw Posnanski's Tweets about the game so I turned it on. This is amazing!

    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! :p


    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?

    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? :p

    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 really don't like pulling for Kentucky. But I have to in this game *shudder*

    [face_laugh] 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.
