Recommended Posts

This tends to be fun.

 

Kansas will be the 1 seed, most of the rest will be determined on the weekend.

Wednesday's games should be forgettable. Thursday, ISU/OSU should be quality. Didn't really want to face them again, but the crowd will be ISU-lean. Will be surprised if the semis include anyone but the top 5 seeds. Iowa State/Kansas part 3 would be a lot of fun and what all the businesses in KC want.

TCU and Texas won the play-ins. Texas was a mild upset.

 

First main round game just started, Ok State vs Iowa State.

Clones win at Hilton South, 92-83. Play winner of KU/TCU on Friday at 7pm CT.

 

Seems like right now, ISU is a 6-seed for the Tournament even if they lose to Kansas. Have a chance to get to a 5 or maybe even a 4 if they win two more, but that's a tall task.

Hey, TCU up by 9 over Kansas with 14 minutes left to play. Wish I could turn on a TV here. That might put TCU close to an NCAA bid if they could pull it off, though it would still be a stretch.

Kansas has spent all year doing this. Hopefully they lose, but the late rally has been their specialty this year.

Probably KU pulls it out. But the combination of playing a desperate team when KU doesn't have as much at stake, and being on a neutral floor, things can happen.

 

I also just noticed, hadn't realized before... Kansas only lost 1 true road game this year (WV). Their other losses were at home (ISU) and neutral (Indiana).

TCU does it - 85-82. Tie game, 4 seconds left, TCU goes to put up an off balance 3 from the corner and a KU player barrels into him for the 3-shot foul. TCU makes all three. Not sure who the KU player was who made the foul, but that was ugly and a really poor decision.

That means it turns into the Iowa State invitational, because Kansas State is the only other team with any fans at all there.
