I was blown away by this weekend of games. I think I am excited about the Final Four this year because it featured teams that were totally
unexpected. Even though a die-hard Bruin fan, my brackets had them coming out at the sweet sixteen!
My brackets are messed up. lol. I honestly thought that at least one or two of the #1 seeds would have been there.
But this year is great because of the parity between the conferences. And, every team that played in the big dance fought to the bitter end to get to
the next level. And George Mason, an eleven seed!!! I thought UCONN would fight their way back by at least forcing another OT. But, the three
pointers shot at the net failed to connect. But George Mason, I believe, had enought fight to last them until the final seconds of the clock. And,
even though it wasn't UCONN, it is still wonderful to see new teams excel within the tourney.
I'm no big fan of Donovan, but Florida showed their stuff today as well. I had heard of Yannick Noah because some of my family members are big
tennis fans. But I didn't know his son went to Florida and played basketball! Joachim Noah really put on a show today. He was amazing! However, I
thought that Villanova would have been neck and neck with Florida all the way. But in the end, they were lagging behind.
As for LSU and UCLA, I know that it going to be dogfight to the end. I still don't know how they are going to shut down Glen Davis. I'll be on
pins and needles the entire game!
But what I do know is that each of the teams fought extremely hard to get there. And it's going to be an exciting finish at the end. No matter who
wins, it'll be great to see. Because it is the first time in a long time that no number one seeds finished at least at the Final Four. This time
the victory will be given to a lower seed.
