Roundup and Preview

I've been meaning to write about the NCAA Tournament that is going on, but well, I can't blog and watch the games at the same time (not at my house at least!). So, here goes!

UNC crushed Oakland on Friday. Freshman Marvin "Let's Get It On" Williams had 20 and 8, and May had 19 and 8 in the 96-68 win. UNC then cruised past Iowa State 92-65 on Sunday to move to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2000. Super-Frosh Marvin Williams followed up his game 1 performance w/ 20 and 15, and Sean May had 24 and 17. Supremely dominating perfomance by the Heels...and they continue to roll. Next up: Villanova on Friday.

Wisconsin had a fairly easy road, but played down to it's competition, narrowly defeating Northern Iowa on Friday, and beating upstart 14th seed Bucknell on Sunday. Nice to see them in the Sweet 16 though. Mike Wilkinson is a horse, averaging 15 and 10 in his two Tournament games. Next up: NC State on Friday.

Surprise! 12th UW-Milwaukee defeated 5th seed Alabama to move to the 2nd round. Then they followed that up by beating 4th seed Boston College on Saturday! These Panthers know no quit. Next up: Illinois on Thursday.
