That was a disappointment. I was expecting great things from the 4-13, 5-12 match-ups in the East and South regions. But it didn’t work out that way. All the favorites won handily on Thursday. And the “close” game on Saturday was the 65-54 “upset” of MSU over Pitt. A game that wasn’t as close as the score.
The NCAA men’s basketball tournament is one of the great events in sports. And if Denver 2008 was a bit of a disappointment, then it’s only because I was fortunate enough to attend Denver 2004 and Oakland 1990.
