Ugh I don't mind losing, but I hate losing like that.  Hate to be the "refs" guy but outside shooting team gets 23 free throws while an inside grinding team gets 8 you know things are screwed up.

The refs decided early that they were going to take it easy on the smaller guys.  Was so weak that any time a smaller ORU player went inside even the tiniest amount of negligible contact drew a whistle.  Then on the other end as long as it came from the smaller team they could run right through players and hack them at will and the whistle would get swallowed.

Abmas is an awesome player but didn't like what he did tonight.  Just drive inside and flop and he got the call every time.  Just out of control every time and they bail him out w/ a whistle.

Again I hate being like this, and last time Florida got knocked out in a close game I took it graciously.  But this wasn't a great Fla team and this was the best they played all year so really hate to see it end like that.  This game isn't close if it's called even remotely similarly both ways.  Annoying. :kicksrock:

Maybe it’s an off game, but not really impressed with Cunningham. A bunch of forced midrange jumpers, got his shot blocked a few times, some questionable decisions, out of control drives, etc. 

Didn’t look great on Friday either.

Well, he was 6 for 20, but I’m more just referring to my untrained eye in terms of shot selection and decision making. I sort of expected the #1 pick to jump off the screen more, I dunno.

The sum of the seeds of the 16 teams in the sweet 16 in 2019 was 49.

After only 8 teams in today, it's already at 57.

:eek:

The average is around 71.  2019 was just really chalky.

Here are the highest ever:

1986 - 89

1990 - 88

1999 - 88

2018 - 85

If the eight highest seeds win Monday, at best it will be 86.

1 (Gonzaga) + 2 (Iowa) + 3 (Kansas) + 5 (Creighton) = 11

1 (Michigan) + 2 (Alabama) + 4 (FSU) + 11 (UCLA) = 18

57 + 11 + 18 = 86

me neither. Sweet stroke but doesn’t elevate. Several shots blocked. Out of control on several drives. Some risky passes. No doubt he’ll be a great spot up shooter but that’s not a #1 overall pick to me

Pac 12 way under rated by the experts and Big 10 way over rated.  The best team in the Pac 12 has yet to play.  I expect them to take care of Iowa tomorrow.

Exciting first half.  Oregon wins if they can keep their starters out of foul trouble.  Their starting 5 is much better than Iowa.
