Villanova/Kansas And NCAA Tournament Notes And Comments

March 26, 2018

The two winners of recent conference tournaments held at Madison Square Garden, Villanova (Big East) and Michigan (Big Ten) are both 5 point favorites, in national semis/final four games to be played next Saturday, in San Antonio, Texas.

Yesterday Villanova covered Texas Tech to advance to their second national semi in 3 seasons (they won it all in 2016 and are the top choice this time around), winning by 12 points, as 6 plus point favorites.

In the second game yesterday, Kansas, a three plus point underdog, won in overtime vs Duke and now bids for a third “8” year title, having won it all in 1988 and 2008.

As stated yesterday, Michigan is about a 5 point “fave” vs Loyola of Chicago in what I correctly predicted would be the opening game next Saturday.

I also thought Kansas/Duke would go into overtime, thus building the audience for the next program. That of course, manifested with Mr. Murrow, Mr. Cronkite and even Mr. Paley, I believe “spinning” negatively, in a better place.


Nobody but me, in 1971, Villanova defeated Western Kentucky, in a classic national semi.

Now in a year Villanova which won the Madison Square Garden based Big East Tournament and far more important, is in the national semis, Western Kentucky will play Utah in one N.I.T. semi, that once highly prestigious tournament, still played at Madison Square Garden.

Tomorrow more on the N.I.T. which will have its semis tomorrow and championship game on Thursday.
