Monday, March 07, 2005The Morning Toast (Part 2): Blogger Ate My Homework
Illinois Loses: Good game and a great run for the Illini, they probably should've won this game but they've gone about this season the right way. They don't look ahead, they play the games one at a time. Bruce Weber is doing a great job and I don't expect this team to come close to losing until the Elite Eight.
UNC Upends Duke: Another classic game between these two great rivals and a great rally by the Tar Heels to pull out the victory. Sean May was a monster and the main reason UNC won was because they never went away from their advantage inside. It was a great win for Carolina, who solidified their status as a 1 seed. Duke, almost definitely a 2 seed, had to like the way it is playing right now and the contributions from Lee Melchionni on offense.
Florida Downs Kentucky: The SEC stinks and neither one of these teams will probably make it out of the first weekend. Florida finally gets a win over a program that has owned them in the last four years, but neither team is very good.
Wake Edged N.C. State: And Chris Paul gets a game on the bench for a pop cock. Personally I would have suspended him for three, but there was already a precedent when Julius Hodge elbowed Steve Blake in the face. So it is what it is.
Sorry this post is so bad, I don't have time for the full monty...
However, the Ravens signed Samari Rolle, great signing and now the Ravens definitely have the best secondary in the league.
