UNC — Kentucky  —one of the great games of March Madness

Early Lines for Saturday  Tar Heels -4 1/2 over Oregon       Gonzaga  -6 1/2 over The Gamecocks

Luke Maye, a sophomore from NC scored 17 points in 20 minutes

Could you believe that Roy Williams refused to call a timeout as North Carolina sank–Finally he did and adjustment to a zone defense befuddled Calipari and thus the comeback.

Notable errors—Why would Williams allow Kennedy Meeks to throw in the ball in the final minute. In crucial situations your best ballhandler is supposed to.

Up by 3 with seconds left Coaches refuse foul and give the trailing team 2 shots.

The talent superiority on Kentucky and North Carolina is massive

Bill Self is now 2-7 in round of 8 games.

Gonzaga coach Mark Few finally got to a Final four after 14 missed opportunities. I repeat 14.

Michigan salvaged the final game against the Terrapin nine after dropping the first 2.

DJ Johnson captured the World Match Play Title for the second year in a row.

    lot of second guessing of a winning coach. williams has never been considered a good in game coach yet here he is in another final 4.

    with meeks inbounding it might be so he doesn’t have to catch the pass because he’s not a good foul shooter and he can see over the d making it easier to inbounds the ball. the announcers questioned williams decision having meeks inbounds the ball.

    fox and monk were off and carolina hit the boards, shot better and had a big edge at the free throw line.

    Would you accept that Gonzaga plays in horrible conference with an automatic bid so many of the wins are pretty weak.Gonzaga was already established before Few got there.They are a good program but are usually overseeded because of their inflated record.Turgeon has had to work his way up coaching Jacksonville State,Wichita State,which he brought back to relevancy.and Texas A&M,hardly tradition rich.Not to mention the horrible roster he inherited when he signed with Maryland.3 ncaa tournaments in 3 years…I’d say he’s trending up.
