A Roundball Weekend March 28, 2011Posted by Matt in basketball.

This weekend my NCAA Tournament bracket did not merely get blown to pieces, it got a-bombed into oblivion.
Then again, I would guess that everyone else (unless you are crazy of have some sort of dark, supernatural foresight) did as well.
All four of my Final Four picks (Kansas, Ohio St, UConn, and Wisconsin) made it to the Sweet Sixteen, but after a wild four days, only one of them remains – UConn – and I had them losing the National Championship game to Kansas. I am entered in Mark Elrod’s Tournament Challenge and though my bracket (Unfrozen Caveman Vitale) is still in the top 10, my chances to win were thrown out the window over the weekend. Oh well, such is life. Go VCU!
In other exciting news, Mike Anderson was officially presented as the new coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks over the weekend and all of the Hog faithful, including yours truly, rejoiced!
Tennessee also announced their new coach, the young and relatively unknown Cuonzo Martin. Check out #thingsIwouldhavethoughtCuonzoMartinwas on Twitter for a good laugh.
On the pro side, our Memphis Grizzlies are planted in the 8th playoff spot and hopefully they will sew that up in the next two weeks. Everybody loves to win and it’s been far too long since they have done this well. Now, if only they could pull of moves like I did in NBA 2K11 on the PS3, – trading Mike Conley straight up for Derrick Rose. Now, that would be a team!
