NCAA Tournament Notes

March 18, 2018

Yes, Maryland Baltimore County, a big underdog in its conference title tilt, became the first 16 seed to beat a 1 seed, (yes Virginia, the Sports Illustrated jinx return after Nick Foles and the underdog Eagles avoided it “Suping” New England) but look who it really helps.

Thus far among other possible teams, it is Kentucky, 4 times the title team in a year ending in “8” as they await the Kansas State, favored by 10 or so Maryland Baltimore County winner.

Another note: If heavily favored Cincinnati prevails today vs Nevada, then in a round of 16 tilt, there will be a redux of the 1963 title game, when Loyola of Chicago beat two time champion, Cincinnati.
