Virginia (Men) And Baylor (Women) Win NCAA Basketball Crowns

April 9, 2019

A night after Chloe Jackson’s driving layup made shot was decisive, in 2 plus point(s) favorite Baylor’s (82-81) win vs defending women’s champion, Notre Dame–DeAndre Hunter scored 28 points, leading point plus favorite, Virginia (85-77) (way) over Texas Tech, in the first title game for each team.

There were a few too many really close games and Virginia truly fortunate escapes for me to give/leave my heart/head to/with Tony Bennett’s now title team, which I suppose, “redeemed” itself, after last year’s first round loss to Maryland Baltimore County.

Yet, consider Virginia’s back to back tremendous regular seasons as a “body of work,” well deserving of a title. Both Texas Tech and Notre Dame were gallant in final game losses while Auburn, and its coach, Bruce Pearl also deserve much credit, not the least of which due to enduring a “horrible” BASKETBALL loss, with great dignity.

Why not?! Click below to view the great, great performer, Tony Bennett sing “I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Surely some teams “left their hearts” at the myriad 2019 tournament venues.

Click below to view Mr. Bennett perform and congrats to coach Tony Bennett and his very good and most fortunate, Virginia title team.
