Late Thoughts From NCAA Tournament

As Jon Bon Jovi once sang, “We’re halfway there.” The first day of “2nd” round NCAA Tournament action finished up about an hour ago. Again, here are my thoughts following the 8 late games from today.

UCLA can be a very good team, when they want to be. If, and this is a very big if, UCLA played to their potential for an entire game, there’s no telling where this team would be right now.                                                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                           Thanks to frustratingly inconsistent play all year long though, the Bruins sported a #7 seed against Michigan State. The Bruins led by 23 with eight minutes to play, but let the Spartans back in, holding off a late rally and winning 78-76.
                                                                                                                                                                                                              For the record, teams with ties to the University of Montana went 1-4 today. UCLA, who was defeated by the Grizzlies back in December, was the only team to come away unscathed today. Earlier I blogged about the demise of former UM coach Blaine Taylor at Old Dominion and the Big Sky champs from Northern Colorado.
                                                                                                                                                                                                               Tonight, another former Griz coach fell, as Stew Morrill’s Utah State Aggies fell just short against Kansas State 73-68. Also, Wofford senior Cam Rundles, a former Big Sky Freshman of the Year at Montana, saw his season come to a close at the hands of BYU 74-66.
                                                                                                                                                                                                               Be sure to check back tomorrow, as I will get you set for the weekend in sports.
