Harvard got like 10 layups/dunks out of halfcourt offense. Sure, timely 3s are key but that's just the nature of a game that doesn't have a ton of possessions. What Harvard did offensively was far more than just hitting 3s.

A march madness thread would be more active in the general discussion place.
Don't know why it got locked at least it's basketball related.

They let the Super Bowl thread stay in a basketball thread.

Anyways some pretty good games on the 1st day

A's over Royals. Lester and experience will prove that he's worth the trade.

Tigers winning it all. Tigers are, imo, peaking at the right time.

You're right, it surely wasn't the case this game. But I stand by my statement moving forward. They're going to need to eclipse the double digit mark for threes if they have any chance next round.

Harvard is top 50 in AdjO and AdjD on Kenpom. They do more than rely on the 3 to win and I'd be surprised if MSU blew them out.

I feel like there should be a big musical and dance number after a first round Duke loss.

The officiating in the Zag/OSU game has been extremely one sided in the first half.

Apparently, there was already a dance number for it:

I agree. I thought about starting one there, and didn't see the locked one. There are probably a lot of people who would contribute but they never venture down to this forum.

Things couldn't be setting up any better for Florida. If Michigan can beat Kentucky, the Gators will be on a revenge tour through the final four.

UConn - Last loss - backup point guard was out and Wilbekin was injured for the final few minutes - game was at UConn - lost on a last second shot

Wisconsin - Only other loss during the season - Wilbekin was suspended - close game that was lost in the end while at Wisconsin

Michigan - Knocked the Gators out of the tournament last year - dominated the game and ran away with it
