WDE, WTF
WDE, KY, FL, WTF SEC?
EDIT: SC & MS St fell, too.
I seem to remember someone suggesting that regular season SEC rankings were low due to historically poor MM performance :think:

I'm glad I passed on a bracket this year. My previously multi times successful process would not have worked in this Mad tournament.
Left standing after the Game 1 massacre of the SEC:
9 TAMU :puke-left: - likely 1 Houston on Sun
4 Bama :puke-left: :puke-left: :puke-left: - May survive Sun, but then likely 1 UNC in the Sweet 16. Beating it will be Sweet.
2 TN :| - May go far.

Oakland embracing newfound attention: 'Definitely been crazy'

Wearing a yellow hat embroidered with a four-leaf clover from Black Clover's "Live Lucky" line, Oakland coach Greg Kampe admitted he hadn't slept since his No. 14 seed Grizzlies upset No. 3 seed Kentucky in the first round of the men's NCAA tournament Thursday night.

"I have not been asleep yet," Kampe said Friday at 3:45 p.m. "I have not been to bed and I have not been -- I've not stopped talking. I like to talk, I talk a lot, but it's getting ridiculous. Every 15 minutes I've got a Zoom or something. But it's really cool and it's great for Oakland.
:wtf: Shouldn't the coach be prepping for the game in just 2 days and if not, shouldn't he pretend that he has been?
... Overnight, Kampe said, the university sold $8,000 worth of T-shirts to people living in Louisville, Kentucky, as they celebrated the demise of their archrival.

"Honest to God," Kampe said. "You know, they buy the T-shirts and they put the credit card in and [it says] 'Louisville, Louisville, Louisville.' It wasn't the same person.

"Next year when Louisville and Kentucky play, I don't know if everybody is going to show up in an Oakland shirt or what. I have no idea. But it's crazy to think about what something like this does."
:laughing-rolling:
Graduate transfer guard Jack Gohlke, who caught fire with a near-record 10 3-pointers in the win, is at the epicenter of the team's newfound fame....

For Gohlke, who spent the first five years of his career at Division II Hillsdale College and had 117 fans at the team's regional final a year ago, the crush of national attention is surreal....
Crap. That's the xtian madrassa with Pat Sajak on its Board that's shaped policy for Fascist DerSantis and other RWers.

Sigh, GONCStateGO!!!

Iowa, Caitlin Clark dominating women's basketball betting action

Then, there's the other Iowa women's team:

Image

:shock: A lot of that must be muscle.

Good news:
Freshman Audi Crooks scores 40 to lead Iowa State comeback

Bad news:
It was vs "10th-seeded Maryland 93-86 on Friday night." :ateeth:
... The freshman star scored a career-high 40 points -- the most by a freshman in women's NCAA tournament history -- on 18-for-20 shooting, and No. 7 seed Iowa State hit all the big shots in the second half to rally from 20 points down ...

The 20-point comeback marked the second-largest all time in a women's NCAA tournament game, trailing only Texas A&M overcoming a 21-point deficit to beat Penn in 2017....

Crooks became just the fourth player in Iowa State program history to score 40 points in a game. Her performance marked the most points in an NCAA debut in the past 25 years and second most in a debut all time....

Crooks became just the fourth player in Iowa State program history to score 40 points in a game. Her performance marked the most points in an NCAA debut in the past 25 years and second most in a debut all time....

Crooks became the first player in women's NCAA tournament history to score 40 points on 90% field goal shooting, and she tied Brittney Griner for the most points by a Big 12 player in the history of the tournament.
:-|| x 40
Allie Kubek knocked down all five of her 3-pointers in the first half and finished with seven from long range on the way to a season-best 29 points, and it looked like Maryland might run away from the Cyclones.

Instead, it's Iowa State (21-11) advancing to play Sunday for a spot in the Portland Regional. The Cyclones will face second-seeded Stanford (29-5) after the Cardinal beat No. 15 Norfolk State 79-50 in Friday's late game at Maples Pavilion.
GoStanfordGo!
... This was a coaching reunion between close friends. Fennelly hired now-Terrapins coach Brenda Frese on his first staff in Ames and she stayed with the program from 1995 to 1999. They posed for a photo before the game.

"It's awful, Brenda's part of my family," Fennelly said of beating his dear friend.

The programs had never met previously -- and Frese's team reached its 14th straight NCAA tournament after an upset of Ohio State in the Big Ten tournament before losing to Nebraska.

"We're really disappointed and sad for our fifth-year seniors that we couldn't close this out," said Frese, whose teams had never lost in the first round during her tenure dating to 2002.

Fuck off, Perloff. IF not intentional it was so reckless as to merit the penalty called. Good to see Clark bounce right back, and even sink the 2 FTs. She finished with 27, low for her, but a double-double with 10 assists :-|| Her passing is incredible. Iowa was favored by 38.5 :lol: Final 91-65 :clap:

And eight rebounds, almost a triple double. She kicked ass.

I used to be sorta a fan of his when he was with Dan Patrick, wouldn't surprise me if he said it for clicks.

He's getting roasted on Twitter.
