I am kind of nervous that I am not nervous. I was feeling some pregame anxiety Tuesday night...but strangely confident for this one.

I know anything can happen in this tournament though...

Butler a causa del gioco di breakout. Di nuovo quasi mezzanotte qui e guardiamo sul nostro yacht sul Mar Mediterraneo. Ci scusiamo per l'inglese, ma ci provo. 81-72. More puntas del solito. Think BU shoot good ball day e vincere rimbalzo anche.

These are tho two best defensive teams in the country. Unreal how well they contain the ball handler.

Premature? This Houston team is a fake final 4 team. They can't even hold this Baylor's jock strap.

Flagler needs to not hesitate on those open shots. They're going to be tight all game. Has to take those. Needs to play more like Mayer.
BUbackerinET

They are playing lose and relaxed, IMO.
