College BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKMar 11, 2011 -- 5:38pm
As I've predicted there is some very good basketball being played by a number of teams during this Conference Championship Week all over the country. I started watching this morning, early out here in the West, because as you know we are three hours behind the East Coast. Well, I started watching Miami verses North Carolina and what a battle it was. At one point NC was down seventeen points and not looking like they were going to make it back to really make it a game. If you were watching, then you know North Carolina came roaring back in the second half with a bunch of 3-pointers, which got them back into the game for sure. Harrison Barnes was really hot from beyond the three point line for NC. The game was tied and the Tarheels pulled it out with a last second shot just before the buzzer and walked away with a classic ACC Conference Tournament win. It was a big one for North Carolina. If this is any indication of what we have to look forward to next week. The NCAA's are going to not only we exciting, it's going to be crazy! There's nothing like a good exciting college game during March Madness. Here's another one going right down to the wire. It's Alabama 62 and Georgia 59 with 31.0 seconds to go with an alabama player on the foul line and he make one and missed the second one. So the score is 63 - 59 Alabama. Alabama got another guy on the line and he makes the first shot and missed the second make the score 64 - 59 Alabama. I know Charles Barkley's happy for his almamater. With that, Alabama gets to move on in the SEC Tournament. I just saw the score from the Ohio State vs Northwestern game from the Big Ten Conference and The Buckeyes won that one by a six point margin 67 -61. Northwestern, not known for their powerful basketball teams over the years gave Oho State a little more competion than they were expecting. That's the way it seems to be each year when all the tournaments get started. I think the competion gets stiffer and the games certainly get more intense. Oh, before I forget, look at Notre Dame, not one of my favorite teams to root for. But, in the Big East Conference Tournament they seem to be a team to keep a close eye on the rest of the way and into the NCAA's next week. I guess we'll see how this thing is going to play-out. I'm currious to see what's going to happen in the Big East Simi-finals between U.Conn and Syracuse and then Notre Dame verses Louisville. I believe both those games are later today. Yep, I'm correct. One game is at 7PM EST and the other contest starts at 9PM EST. I expect more great basketball.
Just a quick comment about two NBA teams. Can you believe that the Miami Heat got the Lakers last night. The "Big 3" and cast of others down there in South Beach decided they were going to show the world they could and can measure up with one of the top winning teams in the league. Congrads to them for stopping their five game losing streak. The Lakers I'm sure will take it all in stride and keep right on marching towards the play-offs as usual. Hey, we all know they wanted that one bigtime! It's almost bracket time folks for us college hoop fans. Make sure you do your research before it's too late. Blessings.
