    Since there's not already a thread-Elite 8 Saturday

    X needs to hit some shots. They've already had 3 open threes that didn't even draw iron.

    Can someone tell me why Derick Brown shoots threes? He becomes much less valuable as he drifts away from the basket.

    X is playing like arse but still only down 5. If they could get their schmit together they'd be alright. Gonna need a cushion, cuz you know the zebras are going to give UCLA every benefit of the doubt.

    X only shooting 33% from the field. UCLA at 52%. If both teams regress to the mean a little bit, with only a 9 point margin X may be able to make a run. Without UCLA's turnovers, they'd be up by 15-20 by now though.

    Wow, UCLA is really good today. 14-0 run to go up by 20. This one's over, folks. Nice season, Muskies. Congratulations on a good run.

    That wasn't the Xavier team we saw most of the year. UCLA obviously had something to do with that, but Xavier played much, much better most of the year. They would have had a tough time winning no matter how well they played, but it's disappointing that they did not at least acquit themselves better on the big stage with a national audience.

    Xavier would have needed to play a near flawless game to beat UCLA and obviously they didn't. They couldn't get anything to fall, couldn't capitalize on turnovers, and missed free throws. But I'll choose to remember that team by its 30 wins prior to this game. Those three seniors gave it everything they had all year and it was an absolute joy to watch Josh and Stanley for four years and Lavender for two. They have certainly set a wonderful example for the underclassmen and hopefully they will continue moving Xavier's program and forward. And hopefully Miller stays put too!

    I've watched 5 or 6 UCLA games over the last month or so, and that was a different team tonight. Probably the best game they played all year.

    I've seen a few UCLA games this year, but their speed far exceeded Xavier's. As soon as UCLA would get a steal they were gone for a dunk. It was a great performance by the Bruins.

    UNC is beating Louisville soundly right now. Lawson is a one man press buster. Wow, he is impressive.

    Is it really fair that Louisville played tough all year and finished as one of the ten best teams in the nation and has to play a road game in the Elite 8? I can understand the pods for 1st and 2nd round games but this is a ridiculous advantage at this point.

    On another point, UNC is really, really good. No one has done this to Louisville all year long and they've played some tough teams. I don't think it will be a blow out in the second half but they need to play smart basketball the rest of the way. They really fell apart that last minute.

    Yeah every year it seems like UNC or Duke doesn't have to leave the state of North Carolina until the FF.
