What a game that was last night! Belmont nearly did it, but Duke squeaked by with a 1-point win! Meanwhile, in the one upset of the night, USC was ousted by a feisty, 11th seeded, Kansas State team. The Wildcats expected great things from Michael Beasley going in … but who knew about his freshman compadres … Bill Walker, Jacob Pullen, Ron Anderson and Dominique Sutton? A fun team to watch – they’ll face Wisconsin on Saturday!
So how do things stand after Day One in JordanCornblog bracketland? First off, congratulations to the Howe-Dewdneys for having FULL PARTICIPATION (in the Men’s Bracket, that is). The Bracketology Committee is deliberating, as of this writing, about what sort of prize might be appropriate for such a feat! Those much-deserved kudos aside, it looks like everyone’s doing pretty well so far … with Mike leading the pack, and Doris and Don rounding it out! Stay tuned, though … as we’ve barely started, and life in bracket-land is nearly as fluid as on Wall Street these days!
PS Tyler and Morgan … uh … please note Cynthia and Rachel’s scores! (Trash talking is encouraged … just use the “Comments” option and have at it!) [TABLE=12]
