Kentucky showed why they came into the tourney as numero uno. The Wildcats were in a battle with Iowa State, and then came a 20-2 run. Marquis Teague was brilliant. Next up tje Wildcats face Indiana in a rematch of a game the Hoosiers own by one point.
It looked like Indiana was finished until a late run which featured Will Sheehey’s game winning jumper with 12.7 seconds left. Tom Crean’s team did a great job.
The dream season for Murray State ended in a tough game against Marquette. Jae Crowder has been the shining star for Buzz Williams’ team.
Syracuse dominated in the second half in a win over Kansas State. Wisconsin, even though a higher seed, surprised me by beating Vanderbilt. Give a salute to Bo Ryan as his team controlled tempo.
Ohio State showed great balance against Gonzaga with Jared Sullinger, DeShaun Thomas, Aaron Craft and William Bufurd all in double figures.
By the end of Sunday, we will have our Sweet 16 in place.
