any fans out there? i usually dont care too much about college basketball, but my school (Binghamton) finally made it to the tournament...academically, it's a very good school, but we haven't had too much publicity for sports (regionally we are good, and we have had some national titles in less popular sports)....we went D1 when I was there, and now, four years later, we finally made it to the tourny....too bad we play Duke in the first round.....upset, anyone?

I don't watch too much college b-ball either. I did see the highlights from the Syracuse 6 OT game, that was amazing. Sorry, but I think Duke will win that game, buy anything is possible.

BEAR DOWN ARIZONA ~ ~ We're in our 25th consecutive tourney (although it's been quite the controversy over this year's inclusion). If there's one thing one can say about Lute Olson's teams over the past 25 years, they've been consistently inconsistent. It's amazing how the teams over the years have stayed as young as ever, while I both look and feel 25 years older...

It's been 12 years since we won the title - - let's see if we can do it again.

I'd lost interest in basketball over the years, to the point that I never watched it. Quite a startling thing for someone from upstate NY where basketball is king of high school sports and the rich tradition of NY colleges and basketball.

So my son gets interested in the game, plays in a church league this past winter, and now I am interested again. I am hoping to help him improve his game and perhaps make the high school team next year.

My sentimental favorite is Syracuse and since my facebook friends from high school are Syracuse fans I have them as going all the way to the final game.

I'm a Keuka girl. I may have spent a weekend or two in Binghamton
I miss the fall in upstate, but not the winters!

I am rooting for our in-state team Alabama State... (someone whispering in my ear) What? Are you kidding? They can't be eliminated already!! What's a Morehead? I had Alabama State picked to take out Louisville! Now, my bracket is all screwed up... I had AL State beating Radford in the finals.
