LSU is leading Duke 31-27 at the half without their top two scorers for most of the half.

Go Tigers!

What a comeback by UCLA tonight. They were down by 17 and came back to win 73-71. Also Texas won on a buzzer beater 3 against West Virginia.

Great nite for me. I've been a longtime, diehard, Duke fan since I can remember. After their loss, I at least wanted to see Texas go down as well. And since I geniunely enjoyed watching Morrison play, perhaps a Gonzaga win coulda salvaged some portion of my nite.

Or not.

Wow, I'm glad there wasn't a fourth game on tonight, my heart couldn't have handled it.

I feel you on that one Savafan....after Texas hit that three at the end I about lost it. To have it followed up with Gonzaga blowing that game like that was just the cherry on top of a great night of basketball.

Another great night of basketball as UConn - Washington becomes the 2nd OT game of the night.

WOW. Two of my final 4 teams almost went down tonight....Florida pulled it out for me....now I just need UCONN to pull it out.

I hope UConn is enjoying this win because they don't deserve it. That was a goaldtending against UConn in OT that was not called. Washington would have had the lead. You can tell that the NCAA wants the #1 seeds in the Final Four. Between that non goal-tending call and the traveling call on BC after the Villanova player threw him to the ground - it's obvious.

Now a 2 point game with 7.9 seconds left. It is all going to come down to if George Mason can hit free throws at the end.

Biggest choke job I've seen in a long time. A 81 percent free throw shooter at the line and he chokes. Tie game going into OT.

UConn gets lucky again. Barely got past Albany, beat UK by four, should have lost to Washington but the refs decided to hand it to them, and now George Mason completely chokes to leave the door open for them.

And now the refs help UConn again by calling a jumpball on a clean play.

George Mason continues to miss big free throws. 85-80 with 41 seconds left. You have got to make free throws to pull off these upsets.

UConn hits a three to cut it to 86-84 with 7.2 seconds left. If George Mason can hit both free throws then this game should be over.

George Mason forecasted to be the preseason #5 team in the Colonial Athletic Association by Blue Ribbon magazine.

Hilarious.

Same here.

Did anything happen in the Florida-Villanova game? It seems like it should have been over an hour ago.

Amazingly, with UConn exiting, I'm now set to win my law school brackets since I was the only person who had UCLA as the national champs.

But, I'd almost rather see Mason win the title than win my money.

Florida wins to become the 2nd SEC team in the Final Four. 1st year since 1980 no number 1 seeds make the Final Four.

I think they delayed it for the other game.
