Then that brings a very intriguing Final Four Iowa vs Kentucky Texas vs West Virginia

I see it be UT over UK in the Final Championship

This is set to be the best Guardian's Classis in its short history.


Past Champions
2001-Missouri
2002-Creighton
2003-South Carolina
2004-Creighton

Historiclaly in the short history, it has been mostly small schools to compete, but this year they are brining in the big dogs not since 2001. It was hard to get teams the past three seasons due to the court order of number Tourney to play in pre-season play, and with that over, More rank teams are in. They are playing in the historic Muncipal Auditorm in Kansas CIty, MO, which holds the record of the most NCAA Final Fours. It will be held there or Kemper until 2007, when the new SPrint Center and the new NABC College basketball hall of fame will be next to the Sprint Center.

NABC is the main sponser www.nabc.org of the tourney. If you not heard they are spending up 10-20 million dollars to build a Specific only Collge basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas CIty, next to the Sprint Center. This is where many college basketball players who are not in the Naismith Basketball HOF, who will be part of COllege history. There are rumors along with this tournment every year which will have teh induction along with it.

so who win this one? Better make it quick, games start for final four on Monday and Tuesday I will be there Tuesday.

that was a great game. too bad had to end that way with controversy. Even though it coulda been a foul, yeah they had their chance to win with FTs.

Gibson played really well.

I still have Texas as the best team in the nation.

WVU won that game but gave it away thanks to "Chokesnogle" and "Chokebear", but this game gives me the right to say one thing to all of the naysayers who are saying WVU is overrated (please show some maturity)

right now west virginia is 2-2 and has lost their games to the only good teams they have played. you should probably wait until they do something better than choke away a game before you say anything at all to the naysayers.

Funny you wait till after the Kentucky game to make your little comments. I must admit losing to the 2nd ranked and 7th ranked team in the nation is so demeaning. Wow that must make WVU the worst team in the nation. :biggrin:

can't blame the refs. if west virginia just makes so free throws, they have nothing to worry about.
[strile]Man I actually got a little angered at "Rocketeer" on his last post, but after reading this I realize he is a bonafide hater and most likely a fan of Creighton, Texas Tech, or Wake Forest. Keep on hating but next time do it properly and I quote "if west virginia just makes so free throws" were you meaning to say "if west virginia just makes some free throws"?[/strike]please no insulting or baiting other users on the site. We do not condone that on our site. Please refer to PM/ thanks---kansasalumn

Does anyone know what the name of the offense WVU was running last night against Texas' zone. Part of the time, it looked like some sort of 5-out / Princeton modification. I'm coaching a high school team and the majority of the opponents run a 2-3. WVU was consistently pulling guys away from the basket, freeing up that middle.

i dont know what the offense was, but the part of the game i got to watch, texas was running a lot of man which is what openned the lane so much. i could be wrong though.

this was a great tournament, really competitive games. iowa really impressed me in the first half tonight. i missed a lot of the second half because of my sister, but from what i saw, they did well. damn, im excited about texas right now, what a great time to be a texas sports fan. they really gotta stop with the football analogies though.

You know you suck at point guard when Kenton Paulino takes over for you and and it is like night and day as far as your team's offense. Daniel Gibson, I am talking to you...

I didn't see the first 5minutes, so I don't know what they started out in, but they were playing zone for several minutes of the first half. The reason they switched to man is that WVU was making them look like a JV basketball squad, so they switched. I still would like to know what that thing was called.

Just got my SI College Preview. A quote from the Texas preview...

Daniel Gibson doesn't have a weakness. I think he's better than TJ Ford - anonymous opposing coach
