You have incorrect seed numbers for the Syracuse v Baylor game. They are 8 & 9. This error also carried over to Saturdayís Gonzaga v Baylor contest.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I did not see Tom or Mike Eades, Anthony Jordan, or Joe DeRosa this year.

Looks like Lewis Garrison, Owen Shortt, and Chance Moore are the new guys who worked in Dayton. Also it seems like the new alternate procedure for the first round would be a way to get some newer guys the experience of being in the tournament environment.

Joe DeRosa has not worked the tournament since he lost the NCAA assigning job to JD Collins. Not sure if there is some kind of beef there or Joe being butthurt. In the four years before JD took over Joe worked 3 out of 4 Final Fours.

*Chance was a clinician at an officiating camp I had attended. Good guy, very helpful in sharing with us some methods to deal with overly verbal/borderline coaches comments when we happen to be positioned near the sideline area. Also Chance gave us some very helpful pointers on how be in good position and mindset/attention to recognize LGP on drives into the congested lane when working as the L--in terms of being able to separate and properly adjudicate between: 'blocks', 'charges', and the 'pass-then-crash'' type of situations; his advice has certainly helped me a lot.

You're probably gonna have to add Tony Padilla to your list and subtract Lee Cassell; he was the alternate on Thursday in Louisville.

Are the alternates for these rounds all guys that arenít getting a floor assignment?

And I missed one for sure. Earl Walton in Anaheim with Ayers and Higgins.

I've seen a lot of talk on a local college sports message board that tonight was John Higgins' last game as a college official. Anybody have any real insight on this or is this just some rumor from people that think they are in the know?
