I hope you can feel it. Selection Sunday is only two days away. I know most of you are getting ready for Duke/ Maryland tonight. With UNC looking like it’s headed to a possible defeat, a Terrapin upset of Duke would throw the ACC tourney into chaos. March is great. In addition there are many conference tournament games today that may or may not be elimination games for bubble teams. Clemson/ BC, Illinois/Michigan, Alabama/Georgia are all games where the loser will have a very hot seat on Sunday. Everybody, just sit back and enjoy the weekend.

Here we are just a few days from selection Sunday. The major conference tournaments are beginning to get underway, giving the bubble teams one last chance to make their case. Isn’t it wonderful.
The last couple of days ended the drama for a few teams. It seemed like just a couple of weeks ago that pundits were saying Butler and Gonzaga both might miss the tournament. I guess we don’t have to worry about that pair of Bulldogs staying home.

Since we last spoke, 4 teams have put their name in the NCAA bracket and tonight 4 more will do the same. Their have been some upsets like Indiana State getting in over Missouri State and Wichita State; and their have been favorites like St. Mary’s and Gonzaga getting to the WCC final for what feels like the bazillionth time.
Well, here’s how it looks going into Monday.

This is actually one of my favorite sports weeks of the year. NCAA conference tournaments. The NCAA tournament has really already started. Each of these mid and low major leagues are in the midst of the one and done part of their seasons already. The intensity of a semifinal OVC game is at a high level and the joy of upset victory is almost as sweet as it will be two weeks from now.

If there are any boxing fans still left out there or you want to give boxing another chance. I suggest you tune into HBO on Saturday night for the Bantamweight title fight between Fernando Montiel and Nonito Donaire. It isn’t just for the WBC and WBO belts, but it is also for supremacy in the division.
