    So nice to see Duke getting beat. It's an eight-point lead with 1:01 left.

    Teams in the Sweet 16:

    Big 10 3
    Big 12 3
    Pac 12 3
    SEC 3
    Big East 2
    WCC 1
    ACC 1

    The Big 12 and ACC were considered the top conferences. Ironically, the ACC finally toppled the Football World, but can't hold up their bread and butter basketball.

    I watched my first 2 games of the season.
    My dad went to Duke, so I usually root for them but that Grayson guy is such a tool that I can't.
    I usually root for UCLA but that Lavar Ball is such a tool that I can't.

    Maybe I need a tool shed.

    The best was reading the comment sections and tweets about the game. Something I don't usually do. Duke fans crying about not getting calls. Hilarious.

    I liked all the posts telling us that it doesn't matter since Dook beat UNC 2 out of 3 games this year so they're still better.

    I'm a UCLA fan, but I know what you mean, only it's with Papa Ball. If UCLA wins the title, Papa will ask for two billion for his son.

    I saw UCLA play a full game the other night for the first time this season... It's begrudgingly that I have to say; Dammmn Lonzo!

    It must be the GWC finishes.

    It is actually the new NCAA rule that after the tip you get "Boogity, boogity, boogity, let's play basketball, boys!" You just can't beat excitement like that for building ratings.

    The NCAA tournament broke through the ceiling, don't know when it happened, but it did, brackets and pools. Fantasy Football may or may not have it beat for illegal gambling, but legally it blows away the Super Bowl when you add in all the games vs. 1. Ratings are set for life.

    There were great buzzer beaters on top of that for excitement. Okla St buries a 3 at the buzzer to cover against Michigan, how about USC with that 5 foot tip in as time runs out to cover against Baylor.

    The first weekend of the tournament is the busiest in Vegas. I found that out years ago when we had flight issues getting home and ended up spending the Friday there (we'd been earlier in the week but were visiting friends in CA before coming back to fly out). We had previously come in on the Sunday of the second weekend a couple times, but not the first.

    Really good game between Purdue and Kansas. Kansas is really good, Purdue has to get back to getting defensive rebounds in the 2nd half.

    It was a good game for about 25 minutes.

    Kansas looks like an NCAA champion. Nobody in this tournament has looked like that yet. Or really even close to like that.

    Purdue had a really good year but their lack of speed on the perimeter caught up to them. It was their fatal flaw.

    It was ALL Kansas the last 26 minutes of the game. Last 20 was a total blowout.

    Very well coached team full of great athletes.

    ONE win in the B1G tourney and the Boilers wouldn't have faced Kansas tonight.

    Definitely not the season Purdue had hoped for, but better than the alternatives...

    I'd rather get hit over the head with a hammer then listen to Chris Webber.

    How is this guy employed to talk about anything; let alone the college basketball tournament?

    It's okay... If things get too tough he can always call a timeout.

    Why do you think no one would say that?

    I was hoping they'd win. Hurts my competition in the office pool.

    I wish somebody would call timeout on his microphone.

    Maybe he's getting paid by the word?

    There are very few announcers that can make a TV broadcast unwatchable. Dick Vitale has been this way for years. Webber's inane comments and just flat blabbering made the 2 games in the west last night, a painful watch.

    Dude is flat terrible.

    At least Yogi Fur-Rell wasn't playing this year in See-Webb's college basketball joyride.
