Sunday College Basketball

Big Ten is just a force this year!  Today’s results, 4 Michigan over 9 Michigan State 58 – 57.  What a great game!  Also, Purdue upsets 17 Wisconsin 69 – 56.  Really looking forward to watching Big Ten in the “tourney”.

Speaking of the “tourney”,  a tornado reportedly touched down in Atlanta, very close to Phillips Arena, the site of the 2013 Final Four.  The “tourney” is coming, but not quite time for this level of drama!

ACC action close to Phillips Arena, NC State at Georgia Tech at the very impressive McCamish Pavilion. NC State is projected to be a #8 seed in the NCAA tournament.  Final score, NC State 70 – GT 57.  GT falls to 5 – 11 in ACC play for the year.  NC State is 10 -6 and should get first round bye in ACC tournament.  Senior day in Atlanta.  Thanks to senior point guard Udofia for sticking around.  Shows great character in this young man.  Could have left after Hewitt and staff was fired.  Been hard to be a GT basketball fan for a few years now.  Hopefully, this young team can begin to make things happen in the next couple of years…

Also in ACC action, Boston College beats UVA, 53 – 52.  Nice win for BC, but Univ. of  Virginia is still projected as “in” for the tourney.  Stay tuned folks, things are winding down and soon we will have conference tournaments and then selection Sunday!

The ACC Tournament will take place March 14 – 17 in Greensboro, NC.
