NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship
A 2 year-old girl from Keller did something this week that millions and millions of Americans tried to do and failed. She picked a nearly perfect March Madness bracket.
The only thing that could stop Kemba Walker and Connecticut’s amazing run was the final buzzer.
That Butler and VCU proudly wear the same small-conference, lovable underdog label is readily apparent.
Bradford Burgess made a layup off an inbounds pass with 7.1 seconds left and Jamie Skeen blocked a shot at the buzzer, giving Virginia Commonwealth a 72-71 victory over Florida State in overtime in a Southwest Region semifinal Friday night.
Derrick Williams scored 32 points and Arizona used a huge second half Thursday to topple Duke, 93-77, and knock the defending national champion Blue Devils out of the NCAA Tournament.
Arizona didn’t forget how to advance in its one-year absence from the NCAA tournament.
Virginia Commonwealth didn’t deserve its at- large bid into the NCAA Tournament? Tell that to Georgetown.
Darius Johnson-Odom drained four three- pointers and scored 19 points, as the Marquette Golden Eagles shut down the veteran Xavier Musketeers, 66-55, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Making one mistake after another in the closing minutes, Kansas State kept giving Utah State chances. The Wildcats pulled it out, of all places, from the free throw line.
That “11” on the bracket is only a number. The name that goes with it — “Gonzaga” — means a whole lot more. The Bulldogs have become too good to be considered an underdog anymore, even if the seeding may say so.
Jon Leuer scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half and Wisconsin methodically dispatched Belmont 72-58 on Thursday night, the Badgers’ fifth consecutive NCAA tournament-opening victory.
Florida made its opening game in the NCAA tournament look like one of those preseason exhibitions. Yes, the Gators looked every bit deserving of a No. 2 seed.
