How About That

Who would hae thought that in this years NCAA tournament that:

Western Kentucky would be playing longer than Kentucky

Wildcats would beat up two bulldogs (Davidson Vs Gonzaga, Georgetown)

San Diego would be the WCC team to advance

Miami's season would last longer than Duke's (even if it was only a day)

Every player on North Carolina's team would score (we knew they would dominate, but every player

Stanford's Trent Johnson would be the first person ejected

Stephen Curry would be averaging 27.5 points in the second half of games

Stephen Curry would be averaging 7.5 points in the first half of games

Brandon Rush would foul out for only the second time in his career

There would be just as many mid-majors in the sweet sixteen as Pac-10 and big east teams

This years tournament has been great so far and I hope the teams keep up the good show.

Stanford

I was listening to ESPN radio the other day and they said that Stanford has no chance at beating Texas.  They claim the guard play doesn't match up.  They didn't say anything about the Longhorns not being able to match up with the two seven foot Lopez brothers.  I think hight will be the deciding factor in that game.  The Lopezes should be able to pull down a lot of rebounds and limit the Longhorns second chance shots if the two teams happen to meet up. 

In my bracket I have Stanford losing in the National Championship game.  They should beat Cornell and beat which ever guard oriented team it faces in the next round.  They will then probly play Texas, which I think they will win.  Then I have them playing Michigan State, who upset Memphis.  I then have Stanford playing UCLA, and I don't think UCLA can beat Stanford for the forth time this year.

Right away, I would never have put Stanford in the final, but I think the matchups work out perfectly for Stanford and they have a good shot at making the finals in San Antonio.
