March Madness Day 4

I always feel like the Sunday before the Sweet Sixteen for MArch Madness generally turns out to be a non-"Mad," chalk filled day. Form holds. So I pick accordingly. Today that means the following plays:

North Carolina -5 (2 units) over Washington; Syracuse -4 (2 units) over Marquette; Ohio State -11 (3 units) over George Mason; Duke -11 (5 units) over Michigan; Kansas -8 (2 units) over Illinois; Texas -6 (2 units) over Arizona; Purdue -9 (2 units) over Va Commonwealth; Notre Dame -5 (2 units) over Florida State.

    N. Carolina vs. Washington (none / 0) (#2)

    Huskies by one at the half.  Playing more like an NBA game, both teams like to run it up.  UW in foul trouble tho, 11 whistles to only 2 against Carolina.  I expect UNC to pull away, but that's why they play the whole game.  Will it ever stop raining in NoCal?  Got water leaking up through the floor of the garage, the earth is so soaked.  But USF won at Hawaii last night to advance to the quarterfinals of the CIT, when they'll host WCC rival from down the freeway, Santa Clara.  And of course, rabid piece-of-cheeser that I am, I'll be there at War Memorial Gym.  The squeak of those shoes on the hardwood...music to my ears.  Really I'm just happy to have another game to enjoy in person from up close.

    Sugar doesn't just have an awesome name, she's having a terrific game for Georgetown against Princeton. Hoyas by 20 at the half.

    and I'm delighted that the Jumpin' Jevvies proved BTD wrong . . . again.  Quite a game!
