It's official....everyone else is now playing for second place...the defending champion is back to defend the crown, and I'm not gonna just give it away...if you want it, you'll have to earn it!

Not to diminish your win last year builder_j, but I didn't play. It's kind of like Texas' win last night over Oklahoma without Blake Griffin...not all that impressive.

I'm kidding. Just getting some early trash talk out there. I'm in under AJ II...can't wait!

AJII - Just curious...in your opinion, was Kansas' win over Oklahoma equally unimpressive as Texas'?

There was a little more merit with their win last night since it was in Norman. But still, Blake Griffin in all likelihood will be the Player of the Year...Oklahoma just is not the same team without him. Hopefully Kansas and Oklahoma meet up again in the Big XII Tourney so we can see them both play at full strength. I want to see Aldrich vs. Griffin.

It's already conference tourney time.

That Big East Tourney is gonna be crazy. UConn/Pitt today at 12:00...maybe a preview of the Championship Game?

The first team to earn an automatic berth into the Tournament...Cornell. The Ivy League is the only conference without its own tournament, so the regular season champ earns the bid. The Big Red clinched last night, their second in a row.

Ohio Valley - Morehead St.

Anyone watch that game yesterday against Austin Peay? I was switching back and forth between it and the Louisville game and was able to catch the end of regulation and both overtimes. It's official...March Madness is here.

The highlights - More For Morehead State - ESPN Video - ESPN


Some more good games today, most notably Purdue/Michigan State and Duke/North Carolina on CBS. Clemson and Wake Forest play too but I won't get that game here :(

Also on CBS today is the Missouri Valley Championship Game (Northern Iowa vs. Illinois State). And late night on ESPN2 are the semifinals of the West Coast Conference...Gonzaga/Santa Clara and St. Mary's/Portland.

ONE WEEK FROM TODAY....SELECTION SUNDAY!!!
