2019 NCAA Tournament Games Open Thread


#1

Figured we could use a specific thread to follow the Tournament games (as opposed to the CBB Open Discussion one).

Today’s slate of games:

Let the Madness ensue!


#2

Today and tomorrow are my two favorite days of sports. Two extended flurries of pleasure.


#3

I was in the middle of typing up a comment about MacBrayer’s bricks, then he finally hits one.


#4

Same exact thing here.

My Yale pick is looking quite prescient (9-0, LSU - oof).


#5

Minnesota is hoooooopin. Amir Coffey looks great


#6

#7

After playing UM it must be such a relief to play against a defense that is … well, not UM.


#8

It might be a B1G day in Des Moines


#9

For all their complaining, MSU might get Minnesota in the 2nd round :roll_eyes:


#10

I’m so annoyed by that matchup. No fun to watch Big Ten games that early


#11

LSU vs. Michigan State would be a dandy


#12

Minnesota has doubled their average 3 point makes in a game… with 12 minutes left


#13

Gabe Kalscheur is going to be at Minnesota for 4 years and it’s going to feel like 20, isn’t it? Like when Ricky Blanton was at LSU for the entire last quarter of the 20th century.

#15

Happy for Pitino. I know he isn’t well liked around here, but I’ve always considered him to be a good guy and a good coach.


#16

We will see if they play as well against Bradley;)


#17

First game is in the books and my bracket is already busted.


#18

Either Minny fans are chiming in, or Bradley fans showed up and sound loud on TV.


#19

If that time Bradley came to the Palace was any indication, they travel really well. It’s also only a four hour drive to Des Moines.


#20

I think Bradley’s already had as many good looks as we had the entire 2nd half on Sunday.
