March Madness Day 1: A Few Thoughts
It's the most wonderful time of time year. The tournament is finally underway. On Day 1, we already saw 9 single-digit margins of victory, 4 last (or near last) second wins, and 3 upsets. Here are a few team-by-team thoughts from day 1.
Butler - Seriously, this again?
Princeton - Hats off to the Tigers. Nobody expected you to win, and you didn't. But nobody expected you to be competitive, and you were.
Louisville - Yikes. Yes Morehead State was a pretty good team for a low seed, but you really dropped the ball on that one. Thanks for busting brackets everywhere. (P.S. Yes, it was a foul).
Michigan St. - At last, the season mercifully comes to an end.
St. Johns - Too bad they can't play all the tournament games at Madison Square Garden.
Pittsburgh, UConn - Well, that was exactly as boring as everyone expected.
