    Slightly off topic but I just read that Butler is making a coaching change after five years with their current coach.

    With the run that the Xavier coach made as an interim he might get some consideration.

    Not sure. Butler said it's going to do a national search. Sorry to see LaVall go. I liked him. He just couldn't win enough games, and this season was the worst in a long time.

    Re: ladies. As good as Louisville is, South Carolina was much better. I hadn't seen them play. Very impressive.

    South Carolina has so much talent and they are well coached. They also have a lot of size

    Last 2 minutes of the UCONN / Stanford game were really frantic and exciting. UCONN wins in a close game.

    Stanford ordinarily is a good 3 point shooting team was awful tonight.

    KU dominated Villanova. I've never been a KU fan but I will root for them in the final.

    Excellent game and very close in first half, Duke is very patient and plays good defense. I doubt the Tar-heels will win this one?

    It's been a great game. Living up to the hype, so far.

    I've never heard of Manager games before this.



    Manager Games are basketball games that managers and staffers play the night before D-I men’s basketball games around the country. Teams qualify for the 64 team tournament the same way the regular tournament field is selected, either by winning their conference tournament or as an at-large bid based on regular season results.

    Duke and UNC Epic so far. Congrats to the Kansas Jayhawks on their 2022 NC.

    Amazing game, really lived up to all the hype. Williams bricking those 2 free throws were the dagger for Duke.

    UNC gives Coach K his first and his last losses. How ironic.

    I hope what ever health issues he had are in the past. He has been a success at every stop.

    Good luck to him.

    Dominate performance tonight by South Carolina. Apparently there is this thing called offensive rebounding, and they are pretty good at it.

    Gamecocks are the clear National Champions

    They won't win any awards for patriotism as they sit in their locker room for the Anthem, protesting some fabricated slight. Its hard to stomach when you contrast the plight of these pampered ladies against the background of what is going on in Ukraine and in our streets. I am unable to separate sports from real life.

    I throughly enjoyed watching S C's small guard play. She was fearless penetrating amongst UCONN's tall defense and a fine defensive player as well.
