More madness

So my two teams got knocked out 1st round. Byu...duh, I'm not surprised. USC happened to run into one of the best underachieving teams in the country. My gut instinct was K-State could make a run to the Final Four with THE BEST PLAYER IN THE COUNTRY in Michael Beasley, and several other PTPers in the lineup, its just a matter of hitting the big shots. Beasley alone can dominate a game, meaning they are never out of a game. Despite my gut instincts, my bias towards SC got me in trouble and put them through to the Sweet 16.

....Did you see Duke almost lose? That alone would have made my day. We all know Duke is everyone's favorite team to hate! I think everyone watching that game was just hoping for one of those Hoosier moments, where some no named white kid with no athleticism, but that pure stroke, drains some prayer shot....just like the one he used to shoot against his barn door back in Indiana.

So here's my sleeper teams for the tournament...we'll see how they do:

Michigan State
Kansas State
San Diego
Washington State

I think Michigan State could really bust some brackets by not only beating trendy pick Pittsburgh, but also knock off Memphis. They have the inside game and with Senior leadership in their point guard, they can control the game in the clutch and pull the upset.

San Diego....maybe this is biased as well, but I can see them pulling the upset over UConn. UConn is about as talented as they come, however, they are flawed and lack energy at times. They don't do very well coming from behind and San Diego feeds on momentum. If they do get by UConn, the tide could take them past an undersized Drake team. In addition they are playing just an hour away from home, so you know that place will be all about the freaking Toreros!

Last but not least Washington State is the perfect tournament team that no one expects to win, that does! They are formed in the Big Ten style behind the coaching of the Bennetts. Great defense, senior guard leadership, great defense, a clutch go to guy in D Low and did I mention great defense...and to prove my point, Winthrop managed a measley 11 points in the 2nd half tonight. At least there is one Cougar team that can come through in the tourney.

!Hola Amigo! Awesome picture! Good times! :)

Speaking of basketball...
Ryan has been watching the playoffs and finals, and has gotten me to join him at times, but it made me think of you and Bone. I told Bone that Pau Gasol reminded me of him and he told me that Gasol reminds him of you. :) Hope all is well!

What old school dance move do you enjoy watching the most?
