Harvard shocked the world yesterday! How did they do it?
They were composed, made shots and New Mexico showed no sign of having any kind of offensive flow.
Growing up in Colorado, I've followed the WAC/Mt West for decades. It's hard to look at the conference among the top tier of basketball conferences as they want to be viewed when they lay an egg every year in the tournament. Any thoughts on what the problem is?
I am a huge believer in the MWC. The quality of play during the regular season is high level. But the conference has to look at itself and deal with the NCAA tournament failures.
Who do you think will be the 2012-2013 NCAA Men's College Basketball National Champions?
I'm still sticking with my pick of Louisville.
Mr. Prez right hand man, what was more impressive to you, the total domination by VCU and CUSE, or Harvard taking down a potential final 4 team, i'm going with Harvard, and who can be that team today?
The VCU and Syracuse demolition were the most impressive performances. Not close.
Was yesterday's loss to the Oregon Ducks the final game of Marcus Smart's brief and eventful career at Oklahoma St.?
Not sure. This is a weak draft. So I won't be surprised. He is a top five talent in this draft.
Should Gonzaga be worried about their performance vs. Southern or are they a much better team than the one we saw last night?
Only if the Zags let it cost them a round of 32 loss.
What are chances of UK going 40-0 next season with or without wiggins.
Slim. That's just too much pressure and shouldn't be put on this team.
Andy,Even with an early Lobo loss that most of everyone didn't see coming, how do you think our boys did this season compared to the rest of the country and how do you think we're looking for next season?
They were not supposed to win the MWC regular-season and conference tournament title. Job well done.
A few thoughts on how Syracuse and Cal match up?
Cal can't rebound as well as Syracuse. The crowd won't win this game. Remember, Syracuse won at Arkansas, a much tougher environment. Syracuse should win.
Andy, With what happened yesterday in the West, the Buckeyes have to be the solid favorite to reach the Final Four, what says you?
It's one day. Can't judge this bracket yet for Ohio State -- which hasn't played yet!
Michigan State has trouble with athletic teams. Is Memphis a really bad match-up for the Spartans?
No. The Tigers haven't been able to knock off a team of this caliber during the season yet. So I would definitely favor Michigan State.
What do you think of the Pac-12 performance yesterday (3-0) in tourney?
Strong. But it is also about matchups. Whether it is fair or not conferences do get judged by the NCAA tournament.
Andy, does this mean people can finally stop trying to say that the MWC comes close to ACC, BE and B1G?
No. If the Big Ten doesn't get a team in the Final Four are we going to say the Big Ten wasn't as good as it was this year? Should we say if Louisville, Gonzaga, Miami and Kansas made the Final Four that the Big Ten was overrated?
Syracuse finally got everything working at the same time. They are a dominant team when they don't settle for threes all game, but rather pass and drive. Will they keep that up or revert back to shooting to quickly?
If they stick with the plan like they did against Montana they could beat anyone remaining in the bracket.
Hi Andy, after last night could you see Harvard beating Arizona?
Could I? Yes. Would I predict it? No. This is still a very young team that lacks the inside prowess.
Andy, Michigan hasn't faced a team that pressures like VCU all year, but they have 3-4 guys that can handle the ball and don't generally turn the ball over. How do you think they fare tomorrow?
I picked VCU to be different. But you're right. Michigan can handle the pressure. This game will be won on second shots on the boards.
People are contending Davidson 'blue' it against Marquette (pun intended). But they made all their free throws down the stretch and had one turnover that proved costly. Shouldn't we praise Marquette more and blame Davidson less?
Yes. You should. It was a terrific effort by Davidson. It was one play. This is what happens in the NCAAs.
Is Oregon's victory yesterday the most over hyped 12-5 upset in history? Since the Ducks shouldn't be a 12 seed
Yes. Made NO SENSE that Oregon was a 12. None. If Oregon beat Oklahoma State in a non-conference game in February nobody would have flinched.
Does the NCAA committee have a sick sense of humor pairing UNC and Kansas two years in a row? Do you think the fans get the 3rd round machup they're hoping for?
They consistently say they don't look beyond the first round.
True or False: If Florida can figure out how to finish out close games, they will win the NCAA Tournament.
Does Jamie Dixon take the USC job? If so, where does Pitt go?
I will still be surprised if he does. I am not saying he won't. I will be surprised if he does go. He has a great relationship with his president and AD.
Thanks for the chat. Enjoy the games today.Remember: Experts 1 p.m. EST ESPNU MondayKatz Korner 4 p.m. EST ESPNU Monday
