Man this has been a great half of basketball!

Btw I'm sure this has been commented on, but I can't freaking believe I'm watching Glenn Robinson's kid play in the NCAA title game. Where the hell did the last 17 years go??

 

Seriously. Vividly remember Pops.

It's not the NBA's responsibility to help college basketball. While from a quality of play angle, I'd be good with having guys stay in college longer (mostly for the NBA too), I don't think it's right on any level to force players to stay in college so their school and the NCAA can make money off them rather than they make money for themselves. 


What if athletes from the revenue producing sports were paid?

What a half. Crowd was electric, two unbelievable performances. Can't wait for round 2 after the break.

This has a chance to be one of the better NC Games in quite a while. Although the Duke/Butler game was also very good.

That's better, but the ones that can be first round picks still won't get paid nearly as much as they would if they could enter the draft. I just don't see any reasons for this other than selfish ones (for the NCAA, NBA, and for us fans). I don't think many care that most athletes are free to turn pro (going into the highest league) whenever they are capable of doing so and the reason why we generally don't care is because we don't care about watching their sports below that level or in most cases, at that pro level.

First 7-8 min of this half are huge. Also the officiating has been subpar tonight.

Michigan doing a better job vs. Louisville's press than they did vs. Syracuse's... but still not terribly good with it either way.

Yeah, kept getting an error message on a blank white page... and kept hitting refresh like the obsessed moron I am.

What a dunk from Hardaway.

Wow, what an amazing play by Burke. He is unbelievable when he's on.

A. Pathetic officiating for a NC game

 

 

B. Totally feels like this is going to be a fantastic down to the wire finish.

And then no over the back on that rebound... then Robinson tries to go for a dunk instead of rushing ahead for an easy layup.
