Did anyone else notice what Zelton Steed did on the last missed free-throw in regulation? He started to move in like it was the first of two shots. I've done that before

I'm happy for Mason and constantly in awe of all the talent that comes out of the DC/Baltimore area.

Phil's mom from the Tony Kornheiser radio show. She's the only one.

If you would have told me UCLA, LSU and George Mason were going to be in the Final Four, I would have tried to get you committed. The only teams left I would have believed had a chance would have been Villanova. Villanova is the only school #1 seed left. Right now they are losing.

I did have UCLA from the beginning b/c of their bracket. Weren't George Mason specifically, and the Colonial in general, singled out by Nantz and Packer as not deserving of at-large bids? Nantz was emphatically disparaging GMU's schedule. Now look at what GMU did, they beat 2 teams who had players with championship rings (UNC & UConn) and another with players who made a Final Four (Michigan St.). The only other runs to the Final Four that I could match this with are UofA in '97, and 'Nova in '85. It's a tremendous job.

Also, a big shout out to VA men's basketball. Virginia Union DII 2005 champs and '06 runner-up. Virigina Weselyan DIII 2006 champs. GMU in the Final Four.

Talking I had them

I had George Mason in my final four - along with Alaska A&M, Montana State Teachers College and Vassar.

I listened to that show... Coach was on as well if I remember correctly. I remember TK telling Phil's mom that if her bracket is right, she'd be the only on in the country to pick it properly.

I guess it worked out.

You can check out her bracket at www.tkbracket.com

Actually, what he said was that if she ended up being right, she would be the smartest person in the universe!

I knew it was something like that.. I hope I get to listen to tomorrow's show, but I'll probably be stuck at work without XM... oh well.

I was at the game today in a luxury box no less- God I love my bankers! Based on the fan sampling here, I'm sure they will give Billy P a warm, southern-hospitality styled welcome at next week's game! Apparently the GMU folks hate Billy Packer even more than us folks here!

Here's hoping they organize a cheer that can't be bleeped out.

At least 3 people in the nationwide ESPN Tournament challenge had them. If you look at the main leaderboard, there's 3 scores on page 1 that got 320 points in that round, meaning they picked the entire final 4 correctly. There could be others, but I'm not gonna be the one to click all the other brackets.

You would only have to click on the brackets that DON'T list UConn as their champion. That should considerably lessen the workload.

Isn't this the first year without a #1 in the final four?
