Close games

The morning started out with a furious rally by UConn to avoid an upset and eek out a victory over Georgetown, 68-63.

Then we had Duke having to hold off two DePaul rallies to beat them 70-63.

Baylor had to work their butts off to overcome an incredibly-polished Green Bay team, 86-76. Brittney Griner had 40 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks, but it was the blocks that impressed. I can’t imagine what it must feel like to have someone that tall slap down your shot. And Odyssey Sims sure doesn’t play like a freshman. She has the decision-making skills of someone much older.

One of the very few blowouts of a great tourney this year was Texas A&M’s pounding of Georgia today. Not much to say about 79-38 except ouch.

I’m loving that teams – especially the #1 seeds – have had to work hard this year. It’s made the tournament really fun to watch.

Graham Hays, Mechelle Voepel and Charlie Creme break down tomorrow’s Elite Eight matchups.
