Re: NCAA Tournament First Round FEATURING GOAT COAST

Re: Virginia

I agree that Hall and Shayok are capable drivers, but they often rely on their teammates to give them an angle or set up the play. Perrantes has a little more of the "Can get to the hole at will" in him. Obviously with any one-paragraph breakdown it's tough to really dig into the nuances of each team and their individual players.

If there's one thing that's working in Virginia's favor IMO it's that Bennett is recognizing who can play and who can't, and is adjusting their minutes. Salt is just a stiff and has seen his minutes declining, while Bennett has given Guy an uptick in minutes, which is helpful because Guy is probably Virginia's most talented offensive player, even if Perrantes is better overall right now.

True, true.

None of it really matters, though, as GOAT COAST will probably go all the way.

EDIT: It seems crazy to me that Salt is so bad at offense. He's not a clod who can't move or a beanpole who gets pushed around. He's 6' 11", muscular, athletic, and seems to know what's going on. For some reason, though, he just can't do anything with the ball, not even dunk or lay it up with one defender on him. So weird.

not great for your sport when your GOAT final game isn't one of the four most entertaining finals in the past year (and not in the top 5 if you count the election)

SB?
Eurofinal?
World Series
NBA Finals
College Football Championship (if you put in 2017 events)

You could argue it was better than some of these. Pretty GOAT year for exciting finals.

Re: NCAA Tournament First Round FEATURING GOAT COAST

ya last calendar year I'd go

SB
World Series
NBA finals
CFB champ

all better


obviously part of why some of those are better is the storylines but that's kind of the point right? CBB has nothing that can touch LeBron going back to cleveland, Brady/Belichick going for five, etc

This first game is a train wreck. Entertaining train wreck though.

Yeah I don't think other sports having great finals is an indictment of CBB, just a ridiculous year for finals

Not only not fouling, but not even semi-aggressive defense.

Re: NCAA Tournament First Round FEATURING GOAT COAST

I looked at you, you stole my heart. You were all that i anticipated. I wanted you in the car, but I knew love would be complicated. I began to touch, but you wouldn't let it! It never seemed to be the right time! I started to give up, down to the minute. And, then you changed your mind!
