Saturday Review

So my predictions were way off...

GU/Nova went well with the Hoyas making up for the earlier loss in D.C. UCLA certainly took care of Arizona in the desert. Are the Salukis overrated? Apparently not. On Butler's home court, Souther Illinois took care of business and locked up a tournament bid with their first road win over a ranked opponent in more than three decades. Gonzaga sure showed heart taking Memphis to overtime. The Tigers needed a layup by Chris Douglas-Roberts (and the three steps he took to get there) to win 15 straight. North Carolina and BC was not as much of a blowout as I thought (and hoped) it would be. Instead the Tar Heels pulled away in the final 30 seconds to win by 5.

How did Bracket Busters go? Eh, it was alright. No one really impressed, but there were some intriguing matchups and plenty to watch all day. Southern Illinois was obviously the best out of the MVC, beating Butler. George Mason won't be back to the Final Four after losing to Kent St. Drexel boosts the RPI with a win over Creighton. Overall, Vanderbilt/Florida was still the story of the day.
