    I'm pissed at Purdue because I foolishly had them going farther than I should have in my bracket. I'm also annoyed as they were the more White team. Little Rock made some clutch shots but Purdue blew a huge lead. Their mismanagement of that lead and their collapse was shameful.

    I agree. It didn't help that Purdue's small black PG lost the ball at the end, either, when the Boilermakers had a chance to win it. But, they played like crap the last few minutes of the game, and in OT. I'm really not sure why they went away from Hammons/Haas in the middle.

    Arizona/Wichita State on right now. Going for the Shockers in this one; they've got four white guys who'll see game time.

    Witchita State looks great. They are outrunning AZ in a way I haven't seen happen all year long. It's been
    a fun day of March Madness so far. Hope Gonzaga can get the win tonight too.

    Utah's Poeltl had 16 points and 18rebounds!

    It'll be interesting to see how the NBA treats Baker... He'd be a natural fit with a team like the Spurs but it's slim pickings elsewhere.

    Spurs are the equivalent of NFLs Patriots, fair in who they play.

    Wichita State looked really good. They win by 10 and it wasn't that close. Indiana was dominant against nearly all black Chatanooga. There's no way Indiana should be a 5 seed. They won the Big 10 regular season and scored 99 points today. They should be a 2 or 3 seed. Gonzaga is up by 10 at the half. Sabonis is playing like a stud and their guards are not playing that badly. Seton Hall is playing like garbage.

    Seton Hall is one of the most deplorable squads in the NCAA. Hopefully the Zags can hold on here. It would be a huge win for us.

    Sabonis is an excellent rebounder. He can be a double-double night in and out in the NBA. No one can deny his post presence. Wiltjer is fun to watch anyone can apppreciate a 6'11 sharpshooter.

    The announcers are really pulling for Seton Hall. When they do anything at all they get all excited.

    Unfortunately for them, the Zags ran over the overhyped Pirates, winning by 16! Another all-black team already done. Domantas Sabonis put on a show tonight, with 21 points and 16 boards. Wiltjer had a bit of an off night, but still had 13 and 7. It will be fun watching Sabonis go against Poeltl next round.

    All in all, I'd say a great first day of the tournament!

    Absolutely terrific day for "our guys." I parlayed the insight gleaned from Jack Lambert and Freethinker along with my own writeup-inspired research and have a rather pristine set of brackets to show for it so far (except for Purdue. Matt Painter should be ashamed, although I suspect AJ Hammons was high as a kite today. bad, bad loss for them)

    I think the player of the day had to be Makai Mason of Yale. Honestly, no one watches Ivy League ball and all the tourney projections each year are just speculation, since the Ivies don't really even get invited to inter-conference medleys in autumn. I may have actually downgraded Yale's whiteness at first glance after assuming Makai was "more conventional" in his admixture. Here's a typical gay write-up after the fact:

    It's funny because "Makai Mason" resonates perfectly inside the palate of an NBA scout. Heck, it fooled me!

    It really is entertaining to observe how the leftist media is always spinning every story to fit their agenda. During football games we know if a defense gives up a touchdown and there are ten blacks and one white defender, they will pan to the white defender no matter where he is on the field to make it look like it was his fault. In the Washington Compost this morning, the first page of the sports section shows a black Virginia player dunking the ball with an open crotch shot of his legs as he lets loose a primal roar, which of course is one of the homo DWF sports editors' favorite images. On the lower part of the front page is a story about Yale's win yesterday. We all know that Makai Mason scored 31 points and was the star of the game, but the Compost instead has a photo of Yale's black player Justin Sears with a victorious grin, as if he was the one who led them to victory. On page three they actually show Kelen Dunham scoring a bucket, which is fair. But underneath that for the article on Wichita State's thrashing of Arizona there is a photo of black KState player Shaquille Morris dunking over Dusan Ristic, a white Arizona sub. Next to that for the Providence-USC story there is a photo of a black Providence player scoring over a white USC player. Arizona and USC are of course very black teams, but the DWF editorial staff somehow finds photos like these that fit their agenda.

    BSPN of course does the same thing. Talking about Duke's win yesterday, they led with saying that Brandon Ingram had 20 points for Duke. Plumlee and Grayson Allen of course had 23 points each for Duke, but they mention Ingram first because of course he's got so much upside and he's a real athlete. On CBS when they were talking about the Duke game, Kenny Smith said Ingram is Duke's best perimeter player. Regardless of what anyone thinks the comparative NBA potential is of Ingram and Allen, right now Allen is the better, more productive player than Ingram. It's not even in dispute.Looking at JJ Reddick's production in the NBA right now, Allen may in fact turn out to be the better NBA player.

    Another funny thing was when Plumlee followed up a teammates' miss yesterday with a thunderous, two-handed putback jam. Had a black player done this, CBS' all-black studio crew would have yelled something like "Tyrone Smith with the two-handed dunk!! THROW IT DOWN BIG MAAAAN!!!!". But all Clark Kellog had to say was "Mason...I mean Marshall, yes Marshall Plumlee, with the tip." He calls a highlight reel putback dunk a "tip". But of course its all predictable.

    Looking forward to hopefully another great day for non-caste teams.

    Great post riggins. You took the words right out of my mouth. The agenda is loud and clear. We need to keep fighting
    and educating the masses to the anti white discrimination going on everywhere these days.

    Mason *should* be playing in the NBA if he keeps this up! Speaking of the NBA, it was so nauseating listening to the announcers slobber over Baylor the entire game. If you've listened to the announcers, I'd say Baylor's entire starting five plus 3 guys off the bench should be headed to the NBA today. You'd think the Bears were another Kentucky they way they get slobbered over. I don't think I've ever seen a program so full of "NBA talents" do as bad as Baylor has. I'd say they are easily the most over-hyped and overrated team in college basketball, and that's saying something.

    Purdue should be whiter next year as well; Hammons and two of their guards are gone. The Boilers also have a white PG coming off a redshirt year.

    The "student athlete" does not give any sort of credible answer to the reporter's question yet BSPN and all of DWFandom think this guy's response is hilarious. All the guy did was give the definition of a rebound to the reporter and state that Yale got more of those rebounds. Maybe I am missing something but I think the reporter was asking why the supposedly superior team got outmuscled and lost the rebound game - not regurgitating a definition of a rebound and saying Yale had more than Baylor.

    Perhaps I am reading to much into this or perhaps I may just be a tad smarter than the average DWF or dope on BSPN.

    Syracuse making the tournament is a joke. They were below average and their HOF coach is a known cheat and caste whore. Fortunately for them they got in based off their schools prestige in the past,not how they performed this year. BYU or St. Mary's would have been good alternatives.

    Watching Syracuse v Dayton. So far run n' gun on both sides. Not much skill on either team.

    Sounded to me like Prince was just giving a snarky, pouting, Cam Newton-reminiscent answer to the reporter. Just showing his poor sportsmanship.

    Today picking up where yesterday left off. Another all-black team headed for an early exit, as Syracuse is blowing Dayton out of the water.

    And regarding Prince's comment. I'm guessing Baylor's top-shelf athletes were pretty embarrassed at getting school and out-rebounded by a majority white team, not to mention getting shredded by Mason.

    One moment from the game stood out to me: A Baylor player blocks a Yale player at one end; as the announcers ooo and aahhh over the block, Baylor blows a lay-up on the other end. Hey, at least they're mesmerizing and athletic while they get schooled.

    Oregon State is missing freshman Tres Tinkle with a foot injury. The Beavers still look a lot different than VCU; hopefully they can tighten up in the second half.

    I know every year during the tournament we talk about this on this site. But I'm watching the Iowa-Temple game, and its amazing how often black players grab on defense. A lot of their defense just consists of grabbing, which if it's done to a man in the open court who has the ball, it should be called a foul. One of the Iowa players just got by his man, and the Temple player literally just reached out and grabbed him from behind. No foul called. Unbelievable.

    Costello with 18 points MSU is struggling with MTSU. They'd be smart to keep feeding their big man. Blue Raiders don't have anyone to match up with him in the post!

    Happy to see Cal get dumped by Hawaii. Injury fill-in jew Sam Singer's 12 points were not enough to carry Cuonzo Martin's team of blacks.

    Costello up to 22 points now for MSU, tying his career high. Unbelievable that the rest of his team did not come to play.

    I saw a stat where Costello and guard Bryn Forbes had 27 out of the Spartans' 29 points in the 2nd half. Valentine really blowing it today for them.

    On a side note, Middle Tennessee has quite possibly the ugliest player in the tournament with Reggie Upshaw.

    Lol thinking the same thing. Mulattoes with freckles just looks weird. On MTSU roster he listed Blake Griffin as his favorite player. Dem light skins gotta stick together .

    Michigan State is done. Costello and Forbes were the only players who actually showed up today. Never thought I'd see such a terrible effort from an Izzo-coached team. Valentine and Eron Harris were particularly pathetic. If anything, it makes Gonzaga's path easier, though.
