The NCAA Final Four has given us many amazing moments in its illustrious history. Here are the top 5.
Marquette has hired Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski as its next men’s basketball coach, said a person familiar with the situation.
Last week I posted my entire NCAA Tournament Bracket for the whole world to see for the second straight year. I did fairly well the first four days and a lot better than last year. I still have 10 of the Sweet 16 teams left, 7 of the Elite 8 teams left, and all 4 Final Four teams.
The Hurricanes have had a dream season, but Marquette is the toughest team in college basketball. That’s just one of four great matchups.
Oklahoma State had a terrific season, but got by far the toughest draw out of any five-seed in the bracket. Keep an eye on Oregon.
It’s a rarity at this level, in any sport, for a head coach to have had no playing experience in college. It hasn’t prevented Williams from guiding Marquette to the Sweet 16 the last two seasons and a 60-30 regular season record in the Big East.
The death of the Big East as we know it hit home last week as 14 teams arrived at the World’s Most Famous Arena (Connecticut was ineligible). Next season, the “Catholic 7” will be reportedly joined by Butler, Creighton, and Xavier in a basketball-only conference that has paid to keep the Big East name.
5 “bubble” teams that should be in and 5 that should be out
The Big East tournament will have a touch of a wake to it this week. When games end, there will be plenty of reminiscing about rivalries and talk of what is to come.
The Big dance is right around the corner and teams are making strides towards being part of it. It all started this weekend with a buzzer beater, Kentucky barely holding on and Belmont joining the tourney. A wild weekend indeed!
