In my head I know Scott Drew would win games in most places, but I can't let go of how terrible he is once the whistle blows. He's like Rick Barnes with all the dials turned to 11.

Go Ags! Don't even care if Kansas beats us by 50. We get a real tournament game.

I'm sure IU hopes he goes somewhere. I think the $4 million buyout is reduced significantly if he takes another job.

Princeton did very well executing their strategy. Matt Farrell plays too much hero-ball down the stretch and today was the first time it looked like it pissed Brey off.

Fun game with the added humor of one of Princeton's cheerleaders appearing to be pregnant

Nice to see Northwestern looking like the superior team early.

Princeton executed well until they jacked up a 25 footer while down 1. Take it to the rack!

why on Earth would northwestern have a single player on their end of the floor, let alone all of them? yeah, it didn't matter because of the foul, but all they had to do was toss the ball under the basket and have someone touch it and it's over. You keep it as far away from their basket as possible!

Guys did you know Nebraska is the only major conference team to never have won an NCAA Tournament game? Sad!

Ok, when you're showing a guy on the bench crying as his team is about to lose, do you really have to name him and his hometown? Hard enough that you're showing him at a time like that, let him have as much anonymity as he can

Same here but 16-0 is still 16-0. I'm fully expecting a 9-7 day tomorrow with a Final Four team or a couple Elite 8 teams getting bounced.

I was 11-5, but I don't know that I watched a single game beginning to end this year. Mostly guessing

Quick, get a job with Berkshire Hathaway and make your start date retroactive to March 15th.

I was 15-1, with my one loss picking Princeton to beat ND which was one made 3 away from happening.
