During the regular season, Kentucky was 2-8 in games decided by 5 points or less.  So even though they had a pretty lousy record going into the tournament, they weren't *that* far away from being a much higher-ranked team.  Over the last few weeks, they've figured out how to score a few more points and how to get an extra defensive stop or two so that those one-possession losses are suddenly one-possession wins.

I'm glad there's only one game left.  These last-possession games are killing me.

The elevated court kinda freaks me out.  I know there's a good 8 feet of flooring past the boundary lines, but the way these guys fly themselves around, it just seems like it's an injury hazard.

Then again, look how close they put the sideline chairs in the NBA.

Florida losing to a better basketball team isn't a shock.

I thought the end was a shock, because Florida looked like the only thing they could do was run guys over to get layups.

On this day, basketball players who are also athletes > athletes who happen to play basketball.

picodenico: Conthan: I need more quick shots of people in the crowd please. I must know how a player's mom feels about them scoring a basket, or the handful of students allowed to attend celebrating to know something exciting happened.

If it's the coaches/players hot wife, sister or girlfriend, then I'm all for the crowd shots.

Continuing the chorus of F*CK CABLE.

I cannot understand how it's a bigger moneymaker for the NCAA to go to cable, unless they're paying the equivalent of the national debt.

These games will be won or lost based on the niceness of the cars driven by the respective coaches. Let's break it down:

Game 1:

Florida Gators (1)
Coach: Billy Donovan
Drives: 2009 Nissan Murano


UConn Huskies (7)
Coach: Kevin Ollie
Drives: 2012 Chevy Camaro LT RS

Analysis: It's hard to fault Donovan's selection of the Murano. It's a spacious four-door SUV with a top-20 safety rating and full front and side airbags standard. With the money he saved on the base price, he was able to upgrade this considerably with the leather package and power sunroof. It's perfect for his basic needs. It's dependable and is likely to last a long time. But now you step back and you consider Ollie's choice, and it's pure running and gunning. It's power and speed and the acceleration on the 0-60 can suck your eyeballs three inches into your head. While the Murano is built to last, the Camaro is built for one thing and one thing only: a head-to-head race. It's solid and dependable, but the Murano doesn't have the horses to compete.

Advantage: Huskies

Game 2:

University of Kentucky (8)
Coach: John Calipari
Drives: 2014 Audi R8 Spyder (convertible)


Wisconsin Badgers (2)
Coach: Bo Ryan
Drives: 2014 Lexus IS

Analysis: At first glance, this bracket belongs to Cal. Hard to argue with a sleek, powerful machine like the R8. You know what you're getting with Audi: the power, handling, performance and brand. But if you dig beneath the surface, you start to see the ground shift.

The Infiniti's lower price gives Bo lots of upgrade options across the board: all-wheel drive, heated seats and mirrors, dual-zone climate control, power moonroof, the rear-wheel-drive sports package with a digital instrument panel, bolstered and heated front seats. Audi bests the Infiniti on paper by 100 hp, but even loaded with perks, Infiniti manages to be much lighter, making them comparable in a head-to-head competition. The difference is that the Audi comes with far fewer upgrades for a much higher cost, and its reliability is suspect despite being nearly three times the cost. On value you've gotta give this one to Bo.

Advantage: Badgers
