Weekend 1: Recap

March 24, 2008

Not to pat myself on my back too hard, but I do believe last Tuesday I wrote in this very blog that West Virginia would beat Duke in Round 2. Low and behold, the Mountaineers pulled off the upset and sent Coach K and the Dukies home before the Sweet 16. The Mountaineers will probably not have enough to get by Xavier in the Sweet 16, but their upset over Duke has made me forever grateful to West Virginia.

Other highlights from this weekend included all the games played in Tampa. On Friday, all 4 lower seeds one for the first time at one regional site in the history of the NCAA Tournament. No. 12 Villanova, No. 12 Western Kentucky, No. 13 Siena, and No. 13 San Diego were all able to defy the odds and knock off their opponents.

America, we have a star blossoming right before us as the Big Dance heads into the 2nd weekend. Davidson’s Stephen Curry helped lead the Wildcats to an upset over No. 7 Gonzaga by scoring 40 points and then scored 30 points in their upset over No. 2 Georgetown. Curry, who might be the next Reggie Miller because of his slender build and an uncanny ability to knock down the 3, will look to keep Davidson’s run alive when they take on Wisconsin next weekend.
