Still got UConn and Nova. If UNC wins, I'll have three of four in.

If we get a Louisville over UNC championship game, I think I win the Interference pool. Not only was the Nova/Pitt game one of the best I'd seen in a long time, it breathed new life into my bracket.

I rarely say this, but that game's officiating clearly favored Pittsburgh. Nova got called for small change, Pitt was getting away with brutal hacks inside, Sam Young got away with 25 walks, and DeJuan Blair's performance tonight was the reason the 3-second call was invented, only they didn't call it once.

I actually still cannot believe Nova pulled it off. So much foul trouble for them and none for Pitt.

Congrats to Headache...the team he coaches won a state title.

I was thinking the same thing. I could understand it in the first half when Nova was doing most of their damage from outside...you expect a team to get less trips to the line if they're shooting jumpers. But they attacked a lot more in the second and still Pitt had a big foul advantage.

But I think at some point officials start letting things go. Watch Louisville for example. They're super-aggressive on D which is fun to watch, but they're also pretty much hacking and reaching in constantly...and rather than turn the game into a parade to the line they let most of it go. Basketball officiating sucks, both college and pro.

So awesome that Nova won I saw Rollie and John Thompson in the crowd, it was like a Big East reunion.

I think it was epitomized by the play where Fields drove through and lost the ball, and they blew the whistle and just called a foul. They didn't know who, so they called it on Redding, who literally didn't even touch him, and then they had to go back to the replay and find someone to call it on, and ended up picking Anderson, who only hit the ball. Replay showed no one actually touched him. Those refs just seemed lost during the second half.

Rollie has suddenly been hanging around all the time. He tried changing Reynolds jump shot ... during the season. Wright said to Reynolds something like, "He can coach a championship team, but he's not a shooting coach."

Nothing's better than sleeping in after a long night on the town, waking up, laying in bed for a while, and turning on the TV just to hear Gus calling a game.

"Puuuuure."

Nothing sucks more than seeing a Gus Johnson-called game gradually turn into a blowout.

Truth. And when it's coupled with the death rattle of my bracket, it's truly sad times. The only points available to me now are UNC making (not winning) the championship game. I'm done, son.
