Dancing…Sweet 16

Stank-0 wonders how he allowed Memphis to fool him into thinking they were a legitimate contender.  Memphis was clankin during their 1st round game.  When you can’t shoot outside, eventually your face will look like the pic above.  Your face will be scrunched up because you’ve cried yourself to sleep after goin home.  Is it just Stank-0 or does that guy look like Joe Buddens? 

Unfortunately, Stank-0 drank the kool-aid (thanks ESPN…for co-signin on their win streak…in a weak conference) and believed that Memphis could make a run to the Elite 8, where they would surely lose.

As for the Duke game, Stank-0 had them losing to Texas in the round of 32, so he missed on that one.  Quite frankly, Stank-0 is surprised anyone would pick Duke to even make it past the 2nd round on a consistent basis. 

This is not the Duke we are used to seeing.  The talent clearly isn’t there.  They tossed Greg Paulus into the game and he promptly got sonned by Scott Reynolds.  Guard play used to be Duke’s strength, which is also the strength for college basketball.  Zones can take away a big man, which is why a team needs a wealth of wing players to get the job done.

Lastly, Pitt.  What can be said about Pitt that hasn’t been said before?  They keep sneakin by on the skin of their teeth.  They have the grittiness and grime to win those close games, however, Stank-0 is convinced that their run of luck will end.  With that being said, Levance Fields (pictured above) got some King Kong sized cojones.  He took a helluva trey to push Pitt over the top. 

The next game will push them even more but Nova doesn’t have the big man to make Blair work on the defensive end.  The Reynolds-Fields battle will be worth the price of admission.  Pitt will advance. 

The only 1 seed Stank-0 sees fallin is UNC to either Cuse or Oklahoma.  They have a tough road to plow and they don’t have the requisite guards (with Lawson’s turf toe problem) to make a go of it. 

Either B Griff will eat up Tyler or J Fly will go off in Lawson.  It’s not a good situation to be in.
