This was a fun year to follow this team. They lost a ton off of last year's #1 seeded team and yet managed to post more than 20 wins, slip into the NCAA tournament and topple a few giants along the way. Hopefully Jay Wright was on the phone to his recruits last night after the game, or at least today, talking to a few guys over 6'5". The y0ung guards on this squad could do a lot of damage if they had some big guys to help balance the attack. Similarly, Villanova could play a bit more zone against teams to switch things up if they had some tree-toppers in the middle.
I went 25-7 in the first round. Not too bad. That puts me tied with my brother for last in his office pool and in the 75% world-wide in the Yahoo pick 'ems. I would have done a bit better if I had put my money where my mouth was. I had been telling people all week that Winthrop was going to beat Notre Dame. And they did. I just didn't pick the game that way! I've only got one loss that projects into the second round, so I am ok so far. A lot better than some folks.
We are all here in the snow today. Made a long trip from Joe Sestak's Higher Ed Summit in West Chester to pick them up yesterday afternoon and get back here safely. We were all pretty exhausted, hence the lack of an update yesterday. Emma is playing kitchen and John is playing football. How much more typical can you get?
Have a good one!
