NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Sweet Sixteen: Friday, 3-23 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Sweet Sixteen:

  • Duke looked a bit sleepy at times, but got to work by going right over the top of the Syracuse zone, with lots of lobs snagged by Bags, and points when it counted from the other starters. Give the Orange serious credit for fighting hard, but they needed to be more perfect from the line and couldn’t afford to lose the battle of the boards. #Orange #BlueDevils
  • West Virginia pushed all its usual buttons, but Villanova wasn’t about to be controlled in an intense, pitched battle. The difference — Wildcat execution on the offensive end, which is where the Mountaineers usually shoot themselves in the foot. #Mountaineers #Wildcats
  • Jayhawks followed their recent blueprint to perfection — racing to a lead and then holding on for dear life. That worked today, in a virtual home game against the very spunky Clemson Tigers, but KU will need to show more poise against the boys from Durham. #Jayhawks #Tigers
  • Yet another year when Texas Tech, or someone else, wrecks the party for poor Purdue. #Boilermakers #RedRaiders

NHL Update:

  • Storybook ending for the B’s, as Brad finds Pastrnak, who gets it past Lehtonen with a dozen second left on the clock. #Stars #Bruins
  • Are the Blues finding their stride, or just finding the soft side of their schedule? #Blues #Canucks
  • Another impressive win for Winnipeg, which hasn’t been this good … forever. #Jets #Ducks

NBA Update:

  • Nuggets come up with a monster road win in Washington, and continue to nip at the heels of Northwest neighbors Utah and Minnesota. #Nuggets #Wizards
  • San Antonio pride rises up to repel challenge from the Jazz, with a very fine showing from LaMarcus. #Jazz #Spurs
  • Marcus Morris stars again for the beaten up Celtics, who needed this pick-me-up win in their scramble to hold on to spot no. 2; when they get their injured stars back, this experience may be that much more beneficial for players who are now learning how to be real leaders. #Celtics #TrailBlazers
  • Pacers surprise everyone as they stand on the brink of a post-season pitstop. #Clippers #Pacers

NBA Update:

  • Weird game for the Beard, who looked like a mere mortal until coming out of a phone booth to become truly super in OT. #Pistons #Rockets
  • The ageless Rajan Rondo is turning heads once again … this time in New Orleans. #Lakers #Pelicans
  • Sixers’ second wind shows no signs of abating. #Sixers #Magic
  • Talk about no hospitality in the house of the Hornets … this may have been a bit of overkill against the roadkill Griz. #Grizzlies #Hornets

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Sweet Sixteen:

  • Leonard’s legion of naughty ‘Noles gradually overwhelms and neuters the well-meaning Bulldogs. Make no mistake, these guys are extremely deep and dangerous … the kind of team nobody wants to face. #Bulldogs #Seminoles
  • Kentucky’s starters clearly ate their wing span oat bran for breakfast, but forgot to drink enough carrot juice … that basket sure came in blurry for most of the game, particularly on those pesky free throws, not to mention all those careless to’s. In the end, the difference was K-State’s superior experience, with the very poised, very solid Barry Brown, Jr. #Wildcats #Wildcats
  • Michigan trades 2 for 3 to perfection, and early on delivers a crushing blow to the A&M midsection. #Aggies #Wolverines
  • On a mission from God, Loyola (Chi) is now in the Elite 8 thanks in large part to their hero Downtown Marques Townes. #Ramblers #Wolf Pack

NBA Update:

  • Indiana’s advantage on the offensive boards didn’t add up to victory against AD and the Pelicans. #Pacers #Pelicans
  • With a newfound sense of urgency, Spurs continue late push for the sake of playoff posturing. #Wizards #Spurs
  • Loss of Giannis leaves Bucks dead in the water against DeAndre. Pivotal win could give LAC clearance in playoff push. #Clippers #Bucks

NBA Update:

  • Schroder turns shredder against the slightly off-key Jazz defense. #Jazz #Hawks
  • Blazers give the Rockets a run for their money, but had a very hard time stopping Harden. #Rockets #TrailBlazers
  • With this kind of a fortunate win against the Thunder, it just makes you wonder … are the Celtics this year’s team of destiny. Whatever you conclude, Boston created its own luck by never giving up and have the foresight to foul the Carmelo fellow. #Thunder #Celtics

NHL Update:

  • Another annoying OT loss will hardly ruin the Bruins… but it’s somewhere worse than kissing your sister, and slightly better than stepping in dog poop. #Bruins #BlueJackets
  • When it came to scoring goals at home, the Sabres didn’t know where to begin against Rinne. #Predators #Sabres
  • Coyote spoilers soil the Flames playoff resume with this convincing win. #Coyotes #Flames

NBA Update:

  • Say Hail to the Victors when up in Michigan, but say Hail to Victor when down in Indiana. #Lakers #Pacers
  • GSW was playing with must less than a full deck, but it took all the Spurs had in the 4th quarter, including all they could get out of Aldridge, to defeat the defending champs. #Warriors #Spurs
  • They need just a bit more D in Denver. #Nuggets #Heat
  • Love’s back in the air at Quicken Loans Arena, and LeBron’s back to normal with a monster triple double. #Bucks #Cavaliers

  • Thunder makes plenty of noise up north, with most of the bang coming from the expected place —- the wizard of Westbrook. #Thunder #Raptors
  • A dominant AD in the middle spells DOOM for the Celtics. #Celtics #Pelicans
  • Teague and his Blazers were just out of their league against the red hot Rockets. #Rockets #Trailblazers

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Round of 32: Sunday, 3-18 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Round of 32:

  • Looks like Cincy wasn’t alone as a big Queen City favorite blowing a double-digit lead at Bridgestone. Poor Xavier, which played so well this year and had more talent than seemingly ever before, opened the door just enough to let a relentless FSU team come barging in. And during the last 30 seconds, some questionable strategy by Chris Mack, in having his troops leisurely walk the ball up when trailing by three and having his center Kanter take the last shot from beyond the arc (which drew nothing but air), was the nail in the coffin. Meanwhile, the Seminoles look more than ready to keep playing, with a great coach in Len Hamilton, tons of athleticism and a hardcore belief that they belong. #Xavier #Seminoles
  • Never-say-die Nevada ensnares the Bearcats with a comeback for the ages; true to form, Cincy, which had put up such a solid front all year long, folds like a house of cards. #Bearcats #Wolfpack
  • The Defending Champs get stricken with a bad case of TAMU flu, and shouldn’t have bothered to even get outta bed. UNC was thrashed soundly in almost every aspect of the game, and aside from Joel Berry, brought very little to the table today. Pinson was particularly inept, refusing to shoot and getting rejected continuously. This game validates the emerging dominance of the SEC among the power conferences. #Aggies #TarHeels
  • Put this loss squarely on the job Jimmy B did outcouching Izzo. Syracuse controlled the pace, and cajoled Mich. St. into a mind numbing number of 3-point duds. Rule 101 of beating the zone was completely ignored by the Spartans all day — find the openings and then take things from the inside out. #Orange #Spartans
  • Purdue makes due with Haas, by staying in Haarms way … just barely. #Bulldogs #Boilermakers
  • Size matters, and no surprise here, as the Retrievers ultimately lose their way against K-St. #Retrievers #Wildcats
  • Auburn was too slow to stay with smooth Gabe DeVoe, who QB’d a very confident Clemson squad to a blow out win over Pearly’s toothless Tigers. Mark down a 4th spot in the final 16 for the formidable ACC. #Tigers #Tigers
  • Mountaineers hunt down and kill their little brothers from Huntington, led by dead-eye Devon. #Mountaineers #ThunderingHerd

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Round of 32:

  • Buffalo made things a bit scary for another heavy favorite today, but in the end the gorgeous play of UK’s Gilgeous-Alexander was just too much to overcome. #Wildcats #Bulls
  • Super athletic Red Raiders edge out a very capable group of Gators and look well positioned for a run through to the quarters. #RedRaiders #Gators
  • Another game, another upset for the Mid-court Ramblers of Loyola (Chi), courtesy of Custer’s last second bucket, this time from two-point land. #Ramblers #Volunteers
  • Norvell rich Zags tag the Big 10 with another demoralizing loss; a small piece of good news for the otherwise basketball-deprived Left Coast. #Buckeyes #Bulldogs
  • KU’s sharp shooters were just a little too deadly for the Pirates to handle, though the Hall can’t be faulted for not putting out a 1st class effort. In the end, the Jayhawks simply presented too many match up problems on offense. #Pirates #Jayhawks
  • As decreed by Coach K, Duke imposes its will on the sacrificial Rams. #Rams #BlueDevils
  • No home in Sweet 16 for Alabama, as Villanova had way too much in terms of long range artillery. #CrimsonTide #Wildcats
  • Michigan wins on a heave and a prayer into the great beyond by Poole. #Wolverines #Cougars

NBA Update:

  • Blind Griz finally find a nut, left by the Nuggets. #Nuggets #Grizzlies
  • Paul’s rebound in the final seconds and made free throws stabilizes things for the Rockets, who continue orbiting to levels rarely seen before in Houston. #Rockets #Pelicans
  • Big games from LA and Rudy Gay propel Pop’s Spurs and keep home court playoff positioning in play for the Spurs. #Timberwolves #Spurs

NHL Update:

  • Are the Vegas GN’s finally starting to fall off their high horses? Expansion blues coming home to roost? #GoldenKnights #Wild
  • Avs become the latest opponent with a bloated record to be given a serious Preducation in the school of hard knocks hockey! #Predators #Avalanche
  • Somebody had better light a fire under the feet of the Flames, who sleepwalk through a 7-4 loss at home to the Sharks, and find themselves parked 4 pts outside of the wild card spot and running out of precious time. Yes, they’re still eight games over, but these days in the NHL, being over the Mendoza line is no great skates. #Flames #Sharks
