Fans poured into the streets, rejoiced in dorms, bars and living rooms, and at one point became so raucous that riot police were briefly called in as the city held all-night parties to celebrate the Cardinals’ first NCAA title in a generation.
The sophomore standout scored all 23 of his points in the second half and overtime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final moments of regulation as Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night.

Degenerate Picks for the Thursday Sweet 16 games. I was 15-6 ATS for the first 4 days of the NCAA Tournament:
The Hurricanes have had a dream season, but Marquette is the toughest team in college basketball. That’s just one of four great matchups.

The Florida Gulf Coast star walked into a restaurant on campus Monday and was quickly surrounded. People wanted autographs. People wanted photos. People just wanted to yell words of encouragement.

Don’t outsmart yourself in the 1st Round. There has never been a 16 upset a No. 1 seed. In fact, in the last 5 years the average margin in those matchups is a whopping 26 points. Take the chalk.
There is no doubt that the state of Ohio, and more specifically the city of Cincinnati, is the center of the college basketball world this week.
