march 12: Surprised W.Mich lost to Akron
march 13- UAB survived, MTSU kept ODU from dancing. TX St in a mild upset over UT-ARl in the Sunbelt. How about AKron’s run in the MAC
March 14-I’ve been touting UAB and stuck with them through their late season slump . Big game today vs MTSU, a 6 seed, in the CUSA final UAB will need another big gameinside from Mehinti.MTSU got a great game from DJ Jones, a reserve, in yesterday’s win over LT. He’ll need to be ready again today. LT may be NIT bound.
UL Lafayette K Shepherd (16 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk) ended TX St cinderella move and ULM M Deng (12 Pts, 14 Reb, 2 Ast) defeated S. Bama. I’m looking for an all Georgia final tomorrow. (1)Ga St led by Harrow & Hunter should get by (4) ULL, and (2)Ga. Southern led by Hewitt will eke one out over (3)ULM.
Of these three conferences, Louisiana Tech or CMU (if they lose and need an at large bid) have a chance at dancing. I’m sticking with my 4 from 3 theme.
march 15- Too bad i didn’t bet on UAB when I predicted they’d win the CUSAT. UAB 73 MTSU 60
Bobby Hurley cutting down the nets- this time as Buffalo’s coach. Buff 89 CMU 84
Buffalo: S. Evans 18 Pts, 5 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk. X fORD added18
Central Michigan: C. Fowler 27 Pts, 2 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 B
Georgia St started it paybacks for losing last year’s SunBelt final to ULL and will complete their quest by edging GASO today. Yesterday GST 83 ULL 79. GSO 44 ULM 43
