    That's a good analysis. And, like you, I expect the Bucks to pull away in the second half.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Iowa is struggling in the 1st half with Northwestern State and Wisconsin is getting blown out by Arizona.

    Nope, listening at work. Stokes has commented on standing around on offense. Is that a function of "not being ready to play?" No, its called not handling the pressure of the environment in the first half. But to question their prep and effort? That's just a convenient excuse you hear when a team is playing a bad game. That's why things don't always turn out the way they should in sports. Ohio State will beat Davidson 9 out of 10 times, but maybe today's the 1?

    Saw that. I'm surprised by both. For some reason, I expected Wisconsin to play well in the tourney.

    I think Iowa, like OSU, will be okay.

    Right. To me, that means they didn't come ready to handle the pressure.

    I agree. Both should pull away in the second half.

    Davidson is a pretty fundamentally sound team if nothing else. I have been sitting here watching them set some of the most textbook screens I have seen by any tourney team so far.

    OSU is gonna be in trouble in this crowd doesn't quit sitting on their hands.

    Davidson is doing everything they can to give us the lead, but we just keep on missing shots.

    I also look for Arkansas to wake up soon in their match versus a very sound Bucknell team. Razorbacks are way too athletic to be held down to this pace for very long (27-23 Bucknell at half).

    Not to mention the fact that those OSU player control fouls kill momentum like nothing else.

    If yesterday showed anything, there just isn't much difference between any of these seeds.

    are you hinting that the last play was NOT a charge?

    I'm not even an OSU fan and I didn't think it was.

    I favor neither team, but it looked like the defender was there in time to me. Although, slow motion replay is pretty deceiving on a timing call like that.
