    It's sad when your team is in the tournament and you cannot even pick them. #first4counttoo

    Welp, hope you guys are enjoying this year's brackets. When you pick Ohio State and UVA for your final two, it's a long two weeks.

    Watching Creighton v. Gonzaga and the ball movement and unselfish play of these teams. UL seems to start most games playing like this then reverts to the isolation type game in the second half and wonder why we lose key games. That last 20 second isolation by Creighton that resulted by in an airball shot just before halftime is a perfect illustration of UL basketball. And we wonder why we can't even win the weakass SBC. Why Marlin let's the team resort to this just about every game is a mystery. We can beat inferior teams with it, but better teams prevail. Never changes with Marlin. Sucks to watch.

    I noted this earlier when the tournament started, particularly watching Loyola and Ohio playing. These are teams with yearly recruiting rankings very similar or worse than ours and play in somewhat similar conferences in terms of strength. Loyola's Porter Moser was making less than Bob Marlin until a recent raise that they don't disclose the amount, however, he has been to a final four and sweet 16. His team plays unselfish ball and their offense is predicated on ball and player movement with curl cuts and back cuts. Ohio did similar things and they looked like they could play with most teams in the tournament. But where we really fail is in overall handling of the ball. Turnovers are killers in the tournament where efficiency now becomes more important and every possession is crucial. We turn the ball over so much we would have gotten run out the gym. I like the core of talent we have in our program and next year can be interesting if just about all come back but what I'm curious about is do we have "winners" on that team that will demand high performance from their teammates and be able to play at a high level in the postseason?

    I said it from day 1 of the tournament Gonzaga vs Baylor for the Championship. To me they are by far the best two teams in the country and both could have realistically gone undefeated.

    Gonzaga is undefeated and Baylor has 2 losses, both to Top 25 teams.

    Just making the rounds and asking if anyone is interested in fantasy baseball this year. We have 2 spots left and the draft is tonight at 7.

    According to his Twitter feed, he is watching every tournament game. Pretty familiar with Baylor as that was our first opponent this year. Now, can he take anything those teams do and applying it to our squad is a different question. As someone said earlier, reducing our turnovers is the key to improvement next season.
