We’re one step closer to the Final Four, and the final days before the national championship could wind up as unexpected as the entire season.
For the four teams playing for the national semifinals Saturday, defense has led the way. Syracuse shut down Cody Zeller and the Indiana offensive attack, while Miami couldn’t make a shot against Marquette.
The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament has caused us to rethink some things, specifically all those brackets with Gonzaga, New Mexico and Georgetown making deep runs.
We’ve learned a little bit -- we know where Florida Gulf Coast actually is, apart from, you know, the Gulf Coast of Florida. We know La Salle is actually pretty good, despite being one of the last teams in the field.
The athletic director is a little annoyed CBS’s score graphic lists his school as “Florida G.C.” One scoreboard mistakenly listed the team as “Florida Golf Coast.” The New York Times issued a correction for a piece that called the school “Gulf Coast College.” San Diego State coach Steve Fisher accidentally called his opponent "Florida State" -- in a postgame press conference. And that doesn’t account for dozens of hastily typed acronyms.
When Ohio State’s Sweet 16 bid came down to the last shot, there was seemingly no way Aaron Craft wouldn’t be the one take it.
Craft gave the 2013 NCAA Tournament its first game-winning three-pointer in the final second when the Buckeyes point guard hung onto the ball for the final shot with less than a second remaining to defeat Iowa State 78-75.
The NCAA Tournament has moved into the weekend where tickets to the Sweet 16 will be punched. Now that we’re into the Sunday's slate of games, hopefully you don't have to sneak away from work to catch the action.
Here’s everything you need to know for Sunday’s games, including the TV schedule, the network, announcers, predictions and bits of knowledge for all eight games to finish off the weekend.
