After a week off, March Madness is back with some Sweet 16 action.

Injuries will play a role in some of these games tonight, as Syracuse's Arinze Onuaku is out against Butler and WVU's Truck Bryant will also be out in their game against Washington. Upsets are always the topic of conversation, and none bigger will be the chance that Cornell can upset #1 Kentucky. Seniors vs. Freshman, Nerds vs. Jocks, David vs. Goliath - there's been a lot of comparisons. I just hope for four great games tonight and the more upsets, the better. My bracket is shot anyways.

Games and Tip-off times:

7:07 PM - 5 Butler vs. 1 Syracuse

7:27 PM - 11 Washington vs. 2 West Virginia

9:37 PM - 6 Xavier vs. 2 Kansas State

9:57 PM - 12 Cornell vs. 1 Kentucky

Chat it up here all night.

All this talk of turnovers is making me hungry!

Well the Cornell story has ended...Kentucky looks unstoppable right now!

Xavier/K State - best game of the tourney imho.

3/26/10   |   XERXUS   |   8348 respect

they played with their hearts, they scrapped all the way to the end, i enjoyed watching because not once they gave up

Really glad I chose to stay up a little longer...didn't miss an insane game, if Cornell couldn't do it, I'm glad to see Gus' head explode at least 4 times tonight.

You gotta love the players who want the ball with the game on the line.  Jacob Pullen buries a 3 for Kansas State, Wildcats lead by 1 with just over 25 seconds left

3/26/10   |   Scott   |   49504 respect

Kinda sucks that one of these teams has to lose this game.  Both are deserving of advancing to the Elite Eight after this performance

3/26/10   |   Scott   |   49504 respect

Jordan Crawford has ONIONS after that shot.  Instant classic between Xavier and Kansas State as they head into the 2nd overtime

3/25/10   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Frank Martin will murder that ref tonight.

3/25/10   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

From 32-16, Kentucky's up 40-30 with around 6 minutes to play. Did the Wildcats go into the four corners?

Meanwhile, Xavier-Kansas State tied with less than a minute to play. Gus's pipes are warming up for the big finale.

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

How PACKED is that place? Sea of red.

Ryan Wittman is the man btw.

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

So this game is ugly early, at least it makes all focus on Cornell/UK.

3/25/10   |   Dream_Machine   |   12886 respect

 Go Dawgs. At Least One Of Them Has To Face Kentucky.

3/25/10   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

Ugly as hell, WVU pulls out the win 69 - 56 over Washington.  total turnovers in the game WVU with 23 Washington with 22 .

All Right, Time To Root For Kentucky.

no kidding.............

this game is F***ing sh**!!!! I'm getting a headache watching. Washington down 13, gets a steal, throw it ahead to nobody, just for another turnover..And they were looking Happy (cocky) after this. How clueless can you be?

Butler with the upset! 63-59.

(Edited by Chief_aka_James)

Veasley with a 3 that pops straight into the air and drops silky smooth...should be it right now, 61-56, 33.9 left. Butler ball.

3/25/10   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

WVU with it's biggest lead of the night of 7.      WVU leads 45-38

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

Rautins is on fire right now, and a breakaway leads to a huge dunk...54-50.

s***.

29-27 Washington lead at the half. Combined 26 turnovers, both with 13 each.

3/25/10   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

WVU with 9 turnovers, Washington with 7 turnovers with 5 minutes remaining in the first. 22-16 Washington lead.

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

35-25 Butler at the half, 12 turnovers for Cuse - not looking good. That had to of been one of the quickest halves I've seen though.

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

11-2 Syracuse leads in the turnover game...yikes.

3/25/10   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3292 respect

10-6 Huskies over 10 minutes in...must be some exciting stuff there.

31-19 Butler, nothing but turnovers and bad shots for Cuse so far. Mack's heating up too with Hayward out.

I've been there all day, one of my favorites:

"Little known fact, Ryan Wittman doesn’t hit 3’s. He hits s."

5 minutes in, 5-0 Butler. Gus on the call, so looks like my original upset will work out.
