Editor's Note--Listen a guy can lose a game every once in awhile. I guess West Virginia couldn't stop Villanova's attack. But it looks like Big D started a NEW winning streak in the 2nd game last night with a fancy winner in TEXAS TECH (remember he doesn't lay 2 points in a basketball game...)!! Now he's got 1 pick today, and one pick tomorrow, to round out a fantastically profitable week! Let's get to the good stuff!--R.B.
Yes, Richie, the streak ended last night, but perhaps a new one has started. Enough with the chit chat.
We're still all proud a yah Richie with your Final Four pick of LOYOLA-ILLINOIS in your bracket. They've been in our "bracket" too since Game 1. Guess what? They're in our "bracket" AGAIN! The RAMBLERS can taste it. Sure K-State looked good beating back the warm Kentuckians. But there is NO hotter team in the land than LOYOLA-ILLINOIS . Even BEFORE this tournament. We'll see these LOYOLA boys, their teacher Sister Jean, and maybe even Jesus, in San Antone next Saturday, baby. Final Four. Oh they're underdogs again? Oh goodie. TAAAAAAAAAAAAKE.
On to Sunday......Guess who found out about a zone defense?! Coach K and Duke! That's who! Guess from whommmm? Coach Boeheim and Syracuse! Guess what Duke did? Used it against Syracuse to BEAT them on Friday. But guess what else? It was loooooooooooooow scoring. And Coach K smiled like the Cheshire Cat afterwards. A new trick up his sleeve! He will use it to befuddle Kansas who has some real "horses". Kansas also has a long history of UNDERS, as they get late in the tournament. Cause that means they are playing some semblance of defense. Guess what else?! They are LATE IN THE TOURNAMENT!! That looks like the number got waaaaaaaaaaaay too high on the total, pal. UNDER.
So the happy "Elite 8" recap: Today: LOYOLA-ILLINOIS+1 vs Kansas State, Sunday: UNDER 154 Duke/Kansas.
Good luck. God bless. Mental breakdown? Not even a physical BREAKDOWN here Richie. Just more winning. Which reminds us....Enjoy.
