2018 NCAA Tournament Games

Recommended Posts


Remember following Rawle Alkins recruitment and he sent out a tweet where he said he committed to Buffalo. Lol.
Here was Evan Daniels in 2015

Checked up on Rawle Alkins' tweet. He hasn't committed to Buffalo, a source says. "He's messing with everyone."

That’s awesome. Had forgotten about that. Thanks for remembering and sharing.

The whole thing was a major red flag to me when it happened.

There is a lesson to be learned from Sean Miller.   Because Indiana now plays a very similar style; I hope Archie is watching.   He (Sean) plays "the pack line defense."   Arizona runs its offensive stuff.  That's it.   Sean never made any adjustments or changes.  Easy to prepare for and if the offense isn't flowing well; they're vulnerable.
I think the NCAA Tournament requires teams to do things they haven't done, no matter how subtle.  A zone press...even token.  A different pace (see : Indiana v UNLV 1987).   New offensive sets.   Tonight, Arizona looked very vanilla and very beatable.  Yes...they are soft.  No doubt.  But I watched them a few times this season, and saw generally the same team tonight.  Buffalo was far tougher and far more prepared.


Agreed. Sean seems to bow out of the tourney early every year because...well...he's not a good coach. I almost picked Buffalo because of it, but I begrudgingly picked Zona to be 1 and done instead.

Maybe Sean Miller is smarter than I thought? You can't vacate tournament wins if you don't get any. emoji57.png

lol - you and Deadspin are of similar minds: "Arizona Avoids Vacating Future Tournament Wins"

What we've gained in Teddy TV out of the tourney we've lost in Higgins going to review every 4 seconds. This jackass thinks he's gonna get a SAG card with all this TV time.

I always think Gruden is officiating when I see him
