The Basketball Tournament has been great this year, at least from this fan’s perspective. I can’t recall a year with so many upsets. This has been the year of David’s beating the Goliath’s. In the end a power like Kentucky, Syracuse or Duke will probably win, but it is wonderful seeing teams such as Cornell, St. Mary’s and Northern Iowa make the Sweet Sixteen.
I’m really glad in chose to buy two brackets this year. I had Kansas beating Duke winning in one and I have Duke beating Syracuse in the other. Of course, Kansas went down in flames to the Panthers of Northern Iowa. Duke and Syracuse both look good so far and look like good shots to make the Final Four. Kentucky remains alive and dangerous, but I’m hopeful their inexperience catches up with them at some point.
