NCAA Final Four and Bracket News

As we look at the week ahead, I decided that I would take a look at the games for next Saturday....If I had hair on my neck, it would be standing up. What match-ups for the Final Four. I have enjoyed the games and the buzzer beaters and all... but, we all look forward to this before the MLB season hits 2nd gear.



This has been a great tourney for the Today's Sports Beat...Bracket Buster Challenge. I thought that I was down and out...but maybe not. I have been 3rd, 10th, 11th, and even 1st...for a hot second. Well, the top 2 brackets have UNC as the winner and I have Kansas...wow! This is going to be exciting.

Memphis over TX to advance to the Final Four

This is an interesting Tournament this year in the NCAA where the top four #1 seeds could be going up against each other. Memphis looked great today against Texas and the ball movement was crisp and the shooting was spot on. While I was watching today's game, I realized that the shot selection for Texas wasn't very good and they missed a lot of open jumpers. I am looking forward to see who rounds out the Final Four.

Sweet 16, Fantasy Sports Update and Schedule

It was a great basketball weekend for all the fans of the NCAA Tournament. This is a strange time of year for sports, it is a time when NFL ends, Nascar kicks it's season off and then BAM-NCAA Tourney. This is the roadblock between Winter and MLB's 162 game season. It says "Look at me!"

NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball pumps fans up after a long season of football after your team either fails to make the playoffs or is dealt a loss in the post season.

I myself am a fan on watching cars make left hand turns for 95% of the racing season, but that doesn't make me a bad person.

Where do we start for Sweet 16 teams? Davidson, the tournament stunner so far? The skim by wins of Texas and Memphis? It has been a crazy NCAA Tournament and if you are like me, you are looking for a redo on your expectations of your bracket. On Thursday night, I would expect to see Xavier, North Carolina, UCLA and Louisville move on.  

As for the "Today's Sports Beat...Bracket Buster Challenge" here are where we stand so far. If you need to, click on the picture for a larger view.




Congrats to Duby's Bracket for leading the pack. I think that Rachel has a great shot at willing the #1 prize when this is done and over with.
