March Madness 2019 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Two terrific matches in the NCAA Basketball regional finals over the weekend.

Worth watching the closing minutes if you haven't seen them.

After a very "chalky" opening weekend (of the 16 teams to make it through, 13 were in the top 4 seeds in their region so expected to make it through and two of the other three were 5 seeds), the tournament livened up considerably last weekend.

The last 60 seconds of the Gonzaga v Texas Tech are also well worth watching, with some "interesting" but probably correct, officiating, and Virginia v Purdue was also an excellent game.

Virginia have made it to their first Final Four since 1984, the year after they had become the first No. 1 seeds to lose to a No. 16 in their opening game (and they were the number one overall of the No. 1 seeds). This year they were the second ranked of the No. 1 seeds and progressed after an early scare against No. 16 Gardiner Webb.

The tournament always delivers, even if this year it didn't have one of the major components of interest - a Cinderella run.
