Same, 10 of 16. 43 points overall. But my championship game (Ohio State vs Kentucky) is in tact, and I'm in the 92nd percentile on espn and yahoo. My girlfriend is kicking ass though. She got 28 the first round and 13 of the sweet 16. Thats like, worldwide top 50.

Fuck yeah Butler!!! I never should have gone against my gut that put them in the final four. At least I still had them knocking off Syracuse!

HO-LY-SHIT.

I hope people stayed up to watch the K-State/Xavier game. Because it may have been the greatest game I've ever witnessed. Simply awesome. If you didn't, and you have ESPN Classic, find out when its on and watch it, because it was certainly an instant classic.

Is it better than the 1957 National Championship game (North Carolina comes off of a triple-overtime win against Michigan State and beats Kansas and Wilt Chamberlain in ANOTHER triple-overtime game)? That's right, North Carolina went through two regular games and six overtime periods to win the national champioship.

That is the greatest NCAA Tournament game ever.

Unfortunately Boush, I wasn't alive in 1957. And my understanding is that neither were you.

My uncle has a tape of some of the greatest college basketball games ever. The 1957 national championship was one of them and footage was included. Therefore, I call it the greatest due to its events.

Meanwhile, Duke and Kentucky in 1992 was considered the greatest ever. This game is so overrated for these reasons:

1. there was no underdog
2. Duke was already expected to win anyway
3. Duke won the game (and made Christian Laettner seem better than he really was)

Here would be my list of the greatest games ever played:

1. North Carolina vs. Kansas, 1957 (54-53, 3 OT's, underdog North Carolina survives three overtimes to beat Wilt Chamberlain and Kansas in Kansas City)
2. Chaminade vs. Virginia, 1982 (77-72, NAIA Chaminade upsets top seed Virginia and Ralph Sampson)
3. UCLA vs. Houston, 1968 (71-69, the Game of the Century)
4. Kentucky vs. LSU, 1994 (99-95, Kentucky erases 31 point deficit with 15 minutes remaining to win)
5. Notre Dame vs. UCLA, 1974 (71-70, Notre Dame comes back from 11 down with 3:30 remaining to end UCLA's 88 game winning streak)
6. Villanova vs. Georgetown, 1985 (66-64, Villanova becomes the only #8 seed to win the national championship)
7. North Carolina State vs. Maryland, 1974 (103-100, OT, the ultimate do or die match)
8. North Carolina State vs. Houston, 1983 (54-52, Lorenzo Charles' dunk and Jimmy V running down the court in celebration)
9. North Carolina vs. Georgetown, 1982 (63-62, Jordan and Worthy vs. Ewing in an epic, back and forth game)
10. Purdue vs. Indiana, 1985 (72-63, Bobby Knight throws the chair) :D

BUTLER!!!

Anything can happen now that Kansas and Kentucky are gone. No matter who wins the last two games tomorrow there won't be a dominant favorite. I'd be happy to see Bruce Pearl in the Final Four because he comes off like a really fun guy. Also, for two or three years I wanted West Virginia to make the Final Four when Beilein was coaching and they had Pittsnoggle and Gansey, That was just a fun team to watch... but it never happened. Now I don't care one way or the other about this West Virginia team.

I seriously don't care about any Bob Huggins teams. The guy seems like a real jerkass off the court.

Also, I'm still surprised that he got another job after what happened at Cincinnati.

Duke and Butler tonight. Will it be a Duke blowout or a Butler upset?

My prediction: Duke 75, Butler 48

HAHAHA that's such a typical Buscemi sports prediction... based on nothing and completely wrong.

Being an Arizonan, I gotta say that the Arizona-Kentucky final was pretty darn good too. Neither team led by more than six at any point in the game.

61-59, Duke wins.

Wow. Butler had a real shot at it. Great tournament!
