Hey NCAA ... free Sister Jean! From the article, and true about the NCAA -----The NCAA needs a vice president of common sense because it’s too often lacking in Indianapolis. Instead it loves rules, regulations, protocols and so on. This is an organization after all that, in the past, has monitored whether cream cheese was applied to a bagel.
Virginia is the basketball equivalent of a really good triple option team that chews clock. When theyre good they’re really good because a 10 point lead feels like 20, but if it‘s not working, they’re in for a long day.
If my count is correct, there were 9 double-digit seeds that won their 1st Round game. Possibly could have been 10 if VCU didn’t have COVID issues. That’s tied for 2nd most all time with 2001 and 2012. The most was in 2016, whenever there were 10 double-digit seeds winning in the 1st Round.
