Obligatory NCAA Tournament Post

by Brien Jackson

So right now, I’m watching some school I’ve never heard of outplay one of the 4 or 5 best teams in the country. ZOMG! Anything can happenz!!1!

Except, really, it doesn’t. In this game, for example, Robert Dozier had 3 fouls in the first 21 minutes of the game. As a result, Cal State Northridge is getting to the line a lot and Memphis is playing soft on the inside. The faster pace and weaker defense is making Cal State Northridge far more competitive than they should be. And that’s a pretty common thread running through NCAA tournament games, and it’s why people picking big man based teams like Pittsburgh and Oklahoma probably won’t do that well in their pools.
