I told-ya-so Department:
North Carolina needed a jumper from Jamie Cherry at the buzzer to beat Ohio State, 86-84.
Maryland’s dominance ends Princeton’s unbeaten season:
Terps 85, Tigers 70. This is may be one game where I don’t feel bad for the losers. You just can’t be down on yourselves if you’re Princeton. And Maryland is freaking awesome.
Tennessee downed Pitt, 77-67.
Stanford handled Oklahoma, 86-76.
So the regional brackets are set.
Connecticut vs. Texas
Louisville vs. Dayton
South Carolina vs. North Carolina (oh, the irony)
Arizona State vs. Florida State
Maryland vs. Duke
Gonzaga vs. Tennessee
Notre Dame vs. Stanford
Iowa vs. Baylor
We take a three-day recovery timeout, and the Madness begins again Friday.
I don’t know about you, but I do need a timeout. I’ve watched a looooot of basketball the last four days.
