Go Blue & Gig Em'!
MSU up over Valpo 35-18 at half.

Valpo is flat awful. Iowa should have made it over them. I don't care what whack conference tournament they won
Really hoping for Butler to make some noise in the East Region. They are as scary as any team come March the past few years! And anything to shut Tom Crean up is a big plus.
EDIT: Bonus GIF of Tom Crean jackin' it!

Valpo looks terrible.
Had to switch to the Butler game. Valpo makes Wisconsin look exciting
Not surprised whatsoever to see MSU blow through Valpo. They were getting a ton of attention about their experience, but nobody would talk about the fact that Valpo just wasn't that talented of a team. I think people just wanted to believe this was actually going to be a game.
This Pitt game on the other hand is a battle. I originally went with Witchita State, but ultimately decided to go with Pitt last night. Probably should have trusted my gut haha
Edit: Also, it's amazing that Steven Adams got all the attention he did coming into college. He did not deserve that in the slightest. Maybe by his senior year he could live up to some of that hype, but jees, McGary is already much better than him and most think he still has a long way to go.

Just starting to feel like Brad Stevens is super legit as a coach. Had Butler in my Elite 8, but switched it at the last second.
C'mon Pitt step it up! I need start 3-for-3!!!
I have Pitt beating the Zags so I need this...
Much as it would have screwed with my bracket, I would have loved to see MSU lose. Ah well.
Memphis up double digits over St Mary's near the end of the first half. C'mon GAELS!!!
He's like a young Coach K.
And there's many who feel he will succeed Coach K at Duke once the legend retires.

Starting as in I'd choose Butler to go further than I'd normally expect just because he's coach.
I don't normally pick teams outside of Duke, MSU, Louisville, etc. because of who's coaching there.
WSU! Learned long ago Pitt was a fraud in March
H. Jon Benjamin's voice cracks me up. I'm picturing Archer doing commentary for these coke commercials.

Pitt, Notre Dame and Texas are three teams I will never choose in the tournament. I don't care how good they are going into it. If they're a 1/2 seed, I have them out in the second round.
Either the guy who's always spotted up alone in the corner for an open 3 sucks at shooting and needs to do something else, or one of the St. Mary's coaches has to tell their players what a "drive and kick" is.
Marcus Smart is the only PG that may have an argument over Burke. Such a beast.
Watching Davidson and Marquette really closely think maybe an upset is on the horizon, we'll see though.
Think Wichita St. could give the Zags a run for their money.
Yea I think Smart is a top 5 NBA pick right now. Plays like Burke, has D-Mo's size. Lethal combination.
Haha. Yeah, it's the guy from Bob's Burgers.
This Marquette game has been great. Back and forth. Davidson took control, but Marquette hit a bunch of 3s and won the game. Crazy finish
Yeah that was fun to watch.
