Wow! What a first day of the NCAA tournament. 2 9's, a 10, 2 11's, a 13 and a 14 seed all live to play another day. a 15 seed almost makes it. Guess we aren't going to see chalk this year.
And what about the Big East. Should they be called the Big Least. 3 teams out and the only one who does win almost becomes the biggest upset of the tournament.
Being a fan of Georgetown, I tend to watch quite a number of Big East games. The way the teams played on Thursday was nothing like they played all year. I think the major issue here is that they go all out in that league all season. The Big East tournament is contested just like the NCAA tourney. Every team can beat any other team in that league so you have to go all out each and every game. By the time the get to the NCAA tournament, they looked wiped out.
