Kansas For the Win

Congratulations to Kansas, who won last night's NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship.

I would like to mention that they got rather lucky. Don't get me wrong, I was cheering for them and I think they did a phenomenal job and they deserved to win, but for a good part of that game they were not the same team I saw play UNC. They would have had a dominant lead the entire game if they didn't have as many turnovers as they did (ball handling, people, ball handling!) and their rebounding became a bit lackadaisical towards the end. Then again, they stepped up when it counted and made some incredible shots and then played like a championship team in overtime.

So, once again, congratulations, Kansas!


  1. I was pulling for Kansas too, so I'm not that disappointed by the outcome - but, Memphis really blew it. Not just the missed free throws, but why even let them get off a 3-pointer to tie? Just foul them, give them the possible two points and walk away champs. Oh well, still a great game to watch. But next time could we start the game at least an hour earlier please" Thank you.

  2. Haha, I completely agree with you on all counts. I would also like to mention that while I don't always listen to every word the commentators say, it gets really annoying when they can't even recognize a zone defense. Just my own personal pet peeve.
