My overall numbers are only so-so after Thursday and Friday games, and the disappointment of BC’s falling apart against the brain surgeons, is staggering. Other teams that failed theHoundDawg and themselves, include upset losers West Virginia, California and Clemson, and lower seeds Utah St. and Tennessee that I thought would win their openers.
It will be nasty in Philadelphia this morning if the Bruins again shoot 37% from inside the arc and if Darren Collison and others again get in foul trouble. As Eric Maynor did his best trying to lead VCU over the Bruins with Collison on the bench, today could be a repeat against Villanova and Scottie Reynolds, but given Nova’s overall talent, the result is likely to be different.
It will be hard for today’s games to match the excitement yesterday with those two late overtime finishes.
