Are you all following this noise around Andrew Wiggins, or as I call him, the NEXT Lebron James (except this one goes to college).  Being an NCAA fan more than an NBA fan, I am still excited to watch great one and done's play.  I am super glad he is going to Kansas instead of Kentucky.  I think he just locked Kansas for another Big 12 championship. And I now have 3 of my 4 early "1 seeds" predicted for next year - Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State.

Those three calls certainly went the wrong way. I about jumped out of my chair with the defensive foul call when that shooter ran under the guy in the air.. wtf! lol

I actually think when you combine the level of play and competitiveness in both Final Four games and this game, I rank it up near the best ever.  And without any last minute heroics, buzzer beaters or overtime.  I think that is pretty amazing.


Absolutely! I loved watching every moment of the game! No last minute heroics, but it still never really felt like Michigan was out of it til the final minute. Awesome game, and a hell of a way to end the season :) . Still don't like Pitino, but congrats to his players for the win!

  There were a shit-ton of missed and bad calls... and no calls!!  L-ville did a lot of fouling that wasn't called on 'steals'  .. I didn't know  it was legal to slap, grab and scrape the shitt out of ppl to steal the ball...
  Hancocked should have fouled out... but they called what would have been his 4th foul on another player who was not even close to the play..  And he goes on the score 5 or 6 more pts after he should have fouled out. 
  Really really really crappy officiating for a championship game at any level. I would have liked to see the game play out for real and not have been handed to L-ville by the officials late in the game.
I don't think I'm bad... I don't box, no karate... just here to make friends with everybody

Was a great game, Albrecht turned it on early but I thought he was weak on the defensive end. Then Hancock once again lights it up. Louisville definitely deserved the win I just wish we could've seen Burke on the court more in the first half

I thought Michigan might take it after they ran out to that early lead, but that Hancock kid just started banging threes and all of a sudden, Louisville was down one at the half.  Better team won.

Crazy-ass first half comeback by Louisville.. Albrecht was lighting it up! I thought that was gonna open a ton of doors for Michigan's other scorers, then Hancock caught fire and BOOM! The lead was gone. What more could ya ask for from a champ game?!

Last time I checked Michigan was a 4 point underdog.  Good, I like being the underdog.  That said it's another tough matchup for the Wolverines, Louisville plays a similar zone defense than can disrupt U-M's offense.

I'm rooting for the Blue but do not have a lot of confidence in my prediction:

Michigan:  71
Lousiville:  65

This town is going nuts over the Women's Louisville team, as two of their players (the Schimmel girls) are from here.It's cool to have local "celebrities", but I don't follow women's hoops. Perhaps I should check out the champ game to see what all the fuss is about.

I think Louisville takes it just based on the fact that I think they have the more talented team.  Usually the first few minutes of the Finals are very sloppy because the kids are nervous.  Whoever can settle down first and make the plays will be your winner.

I agree Michigan gets lucky with Ware out, it means Louisville's guards can't be as aggressive because they don't have the depth if they get into foul trouble. It will still be a great game as both team our tough.

My Finals prediction:  Louisville 74  Michigan 65


Yah! Coming back from 12 down in the second half is a notable achievement (and conversely a notable choke for the Shockers.. heh. Shockers).
Mich's game tonight was a bit of a microcosm of their regular season! Looked real good early then fell apart late; but were still able to get the job done. I left the house to do some shopping right around the 17 minute mark in the 2nd half, when Mich was up 11. Was surprised to see a 1 point game when i got home!
I'm skipping class to catch the champ game. The term just started, so plenty of time to catch up lol. The Wolverines cannot play like they did tonight and expect to win on Monday. These teams love to play some up-tempo ball, but I imagine a game in the 60's. Everyone's just gotta be so tired by this point!
Michigan 62. Louisville 67.

I missed pretty much all of the games today. Caught the end of the Michigan/Cuse game. I know there's 2 decades difference between the Fab Five and now, but seeing that 30-for-30 story made me wanna cheer for em.
While i really have a distaste for Rick Pitino (he just looks like a greasy scumbag to me), I think it's really cool that Louisville was able to continue their momentum despite last week's injury. I'm tryna find a place to watch a recording of the game, but not having much luck.

A Louisville/Michigan champ game should be a good one. Kudos to anyone who has those two in their bracket haha.

It's the same old story every time. There is a scandal at the school, the school knew about it but didnt do anything. It goes public, then the school denies knowing about it and either supports the scandal and defends it or they take action to try to clear their name

His coach is saying that he has totally changed as a person. Apparently he was the quiet one of the team who barely had anything to say, and now he's outgoing and very open to the public about answering any questions. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise for him and changed him for the better. It just so awesome to see someone have such a tragic incident happen to them and come out a better person and turn it into a positive experience. That's really hard to do

That is true, and this is something you can theoretically make it back from, but it will take years to get back to the shape he was in before that play.  So his potential for lifetime earnings is so severely decreased.  Maybe the Blazer's will draft him and give him a million dollars anyway.  He'll probably give us more minutes than Oden.

I guess the overall assessment now is that it should be healed in 6 months and in theory, he could see the court again next season.  can't believe that was a clean break.

Speaking of 30-for-30, I watched their episode on the Fab Five over the weekend. Very good story, and the utter racism of UM "traditionalists" was nothing short of shocking. When they were going over a couple of the letters sent in from their alumni, the verbiage used sounded more circa 1960 than 1990. Bball has really come a long way since that time, but it was terribly humbling.

^ I did read that some experts believed that he might have had a pre-existing hairline fracture or pathology that contributed.  If you watch it (and granted, I only watched it once, that was enough), it looks like he should have just turned his ankle.  For something that catastrophic to happen without direct impact is just crazy.

haha, you're right. I heard Blazers are known for giving money away for free. But so are the Lakers, aka Luke Walton

That is true, and this is something you can theoretically make it back from, but it will take years to get back to the shape he was in before that play.  So his potential for lifetime earnings is so severely decreased.  Maybe the Blazer's will draft him and give him a million dollars anyway.  He'll probably give us more minutes than Oden.

That I jury is such a freak accident cuz it very rarely happens in bball. I don't even know of another incident like it, especially to the extent where the bone is more than 2 inches sticking out of the skin. Very horrible, rehab is going to be painful and a humbling experience for him. I wish him the best of luck

Louisville has it...yeah Michigan looked really good against Florida but they should of never even beat Kansas. Syracuse zone D too good and I'm thinking Louisville Syracuse in the final.

I think any of the final four teams can do it.  If I were betting, I'd take louisville against the field, but any one of those teams can win if the bring their A game.

Really feel for that kid on Louisville.  That was the most gruesome sports injury I have ever seen.  Hope he has a fast recovery and is able to play again.

A shocking injury, have seen a few similar in AFL and soccer. It's never good to see anything like that in sports he's going to have a very tough recovery 

That is such a bad injury, I hope he recovers from it, I read somewhere that the medical bill is going to be outrageous, I wonder if his school will pay for the surgery.

Athletics programs have medical coverage similar to workers comp, so yes they will.  I am glad he doesn't have to worry about covering 20% copay in addition to all the work that is going to get done.

Dude Michigan killed it yesterday, I still can't believe they blew away Florida by 20 points. I think they are playing amazing this year, they might go all the way.


A Louisville/Michigan match-up wouldn't surprise me too much. But hell, at this point throwin Wichita State into the mix wouldn't surprise me! They're playin' possessed! My bracket(s) is/are completely shot. Gonna owe $5 to my gf for her office pool (she covered my entry when they set it all up).. boooo :((

I saw online somewhere that the bill is estimated at around 67,00 but I have no idea how accurate that estimate is.
