Fab Melo Ineligible for the Tournament

March 13, 2012 1 comment

Syracuse center Fab Melo has been ruled ineligible to play in this years NCAA Tournament due to an eligibility issue. This puts the Orangemen at a very vulnerable position. Their zone defense is anchored by Melo being in the middle to block shots and rebound. Without his presence Syracuse is going to rely a lot more on their depth if they plan on making a deep run in the tournament.

March 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Championship Week has come and gone. Selection Sunday has come and gone. Now it’s time for March Madness to go into full swing. The 68 team field was unveiled yesterday evening. The number 1 seeds are Kentucky, Syracuse, North Carolina and Michigan State. The 4 play-in games will be played tomorrow night and the rest of the field will begin on Thursday and Friday. So get those brackets filled out and let’s enjoy the best that NCAA Basketball has to offer in the next couple of weks.

NCAA Rankings – “Week 17”

February 27, 2012 1 comment

The Kansas Jayhawks probably has the biggest win last week by defeating at the time number 3 Missouri Tigers in OT after being down 15 in the 2nd half. This propelled the Jayhawks into the top 4 of the rankings heading in to the last week of conference play. A lot is still up for grabs though, as all potential number 1 seeds for the NCAA Tournament there is about 6 teams fighting for the final 2. Right now only Kentucky and Syracuse are pretty much a lock for number 1 seeds. Of course all that can change in a hurry, once again all we can do it sit back and watch it all play out. I love this time of year.
