I didn’t find the time to post anything yesterday, but I was checking on the first couple of games. We are down to the Men’s Division I basketball Sweet Sixteen now.
There were three upsets in the Second round, plus three teams that are seeded lower than 4th advanced to the regional semifinals because of an upset in the first round.
The next games are on Thursday, the 24th. The south and west regions will have their 4 games that day, with east and Midwest the next day. Only one lower seed plays Thursday, which is number 5 Miami. But 5 of the 8 teams playing Friday are 5 or lower. Amazing.
Unfortunately, as I was cheering for the University of Utah, they were defeated by Gonzaga in one of the upsets, by 23 points.
In other Utah basketball news, the BYU women’s team lost their first round game on Saturday, while the BYU men’s team, in the National Invitation Tournament, won their second game on Friday and will play again on Tuesday. The same day Utah has their presidential caucuses.
Yes, I know the last one isn’t basketball. Sue me.
