    That shot by Koenig was spectacular. So glad that Wisconsin pulled that game out and is advancing.

    That being said, that unbelievable choke by Northern Iowa was maddening. No way they should have lost that game. That's putting it mildly.

    Well, we've got Gonzaga, Duke, Wisconsin, Indiana to root for next weekend. Even if Notre Dame beats Wisconsin that wouldn't be terrible, though of course the Badgers are preferable. And if Syracuse beats Gonzaga the Orange are more white friendly than most other teams that are left.

    Also, the tap in by Rex Pfluegger to win it for Notre Dame earlier was amazing.

    I was very disappointed with northern iowa's loss last night. One thing I've noticed about a lot of majority white teams is that they tend to have one token negro on the court at all times and he likes to screw things up by playing hero ball at the end. It happened during last night's game, 4 white guys on the court but on consecutive possessions when the game was on the line the black player brought the ball up the court and without passing to anyone just took bad shot after bad shot. The same thing happened during last year's elite eight game with Kentucky and Notre dame and also the 2014 final four game with Kentucky and Wisconsin

    That reminds me of a tournament game a few years back between Kansas and Purdue. I remember that it was Robbie Hummel's last year, and he went absolutely nuts against the Jayhawks in the 2nd round, probably scoring around 30 points. Purdue had a nice lead (around 10 points or so) going into the last two minutes of the game. Then this midget black PG for Purdue absolutely melted down all by himself, constantly turning the ball over, or giving it to his teammates in tough situations to force up a bad shot. That PG was the sole reason that Purdue lost that game, and I still remember being frustrated as I watched it unfold.

    BYU beats Creighton to advance to semifinals in the NIT Tourney! Watching Valpo(1white starter) vs St Mary's(4). Alec Peters is Valpo's best player though.

    Just a fun post. You'll know why when you see it.

    Another all-black team about to make their exit. Miami is down 17 points to Villanova with 4:35 left. Ryan Arcidiacono is playing great tonight!! He's leading the Wildcats with 21 points, and also has four assists and 2 boards.

    First2 games tonight have been blowouts. Maryland vs Kansas and Duke vs Oregon should be good coming up next. Go Blue Devils and Maryland I guess(Layman) unless KU let's the young Ukrainian loose.

    I just saw Duke lost on BSPN's front page. They had some hideous looking black Oregon player highlighted in a few pictures being pompous, arrogant and looking like an all around a-hole. He seems like he would be a lot more repugnant than Grayson Allen in a normal society.

    Found this ******** blurb in the BSPN article:

    The Blue Devils were ruined by matchup problems. Chris Boucher’s length frustrated Marshall Plumlee. Elgin Cook limited Grayson Allen to a 4-for-13 outing. Brandon Ingram looked like a top pick but also appeared to be the lone player on the Duke roster with the size and athleticism to compete with the Ducks.

    A team with Oregon’s talent and length exploited that weakness and forced Duke into a late zone. But the Ducks were too good, too strong, too fast, too athletic, too fearless -- Dillon Brooks nailed a deep 3-pointer in the first half and trash-talked the Duke bench -- to lose.

    I really hope Oregon gets knocked out in the next round.

    What a joke. Pure propaganda. Language right out of the Leftist playbook.

    Wisconsin self destructed at the end of the game against Notre Dame, and Gonzaga did the same against Syracuse.
    Both teams had the game in the bag, and just choked.
    Ridiculous.

    Terrible night for our teams. At least Notre Dame plays a few different white guys... Syracuse has just two. Absolutely terrible way for Wiltjer to go out. Every single year, our teams blow games like this. Every. Single. Year. It's so infuriating to watch. White teams almost NEVER have big comebacks to win.

    Notre Dame is the last team to root for; Indiana's on their way out the door. We're left with 1 white starter for Oregon, Oklahoma, and Villanova, and Syracuse's two white players. 0 for North Carolina, Kansas, and Virginia.

    It was bad enough to see Wisconsin lose but Gonaga choking ruined my night. Guess
    I'm gonna drink some beer. Tough losses for both schools.

    Some frustration JL to be sure and btw great job on college hoops all year.
    Duke loss was especially hard and Wisconsin just blew it. Showalter had an incredible put back dunk that ESPN ignored once they realized a white player dazzled the crowd.
    That said Ethan Happ played well in the loss as well as Showalter who shut down Jackson for most of the game. ND has frosh Pflueger who sports a 43 inch vertical. Wish he played more.
    Virginia's back up center Tobey was grade A yesterday. Cooney is a solid athlete and player for Syracuse but don't forget Frosh Lydon a pure stud and future pro. Spangler is a rebounding horse for OK. As for NC and Oregon one word ------ UGHHHH. Kansas has Myka but that coach Bill Self( not white friendly) clearly has too short a leash on him. Vill has a solid point guard but Myka has not lived up to his potential--which is kind of hard when you play 6 seconds a game.

    Thanks Shadowlight, I really appreciate it. I love watching college basketball!

    Tobey got 18 points and 7 rebounds (I believe) in just 20 minutes of game time. I wonder what happened with him? He used to start and play way more as a sophomore than a junior or senior.

    I'll be cheering for Syracuse against Virginia; they have their two white guys on the court for over half the game for the most part. Even though they knocked off Gonzaga, the Orange are still the 2nd most white-friendly team left for us after Notre Dame. The Irish have gotten a lot better, both for us, and as a basketball team, when they inserted point guard Matt Farrell into the starting lineup the first game of the NCAA tourney.

    I find it funny that you mentioned Mykhailiuk for Kansas. I've been frustrated at his complete lack of playing time at Kansas; he needs to go pro or transfer IMO. He's got a lot of talent, but will Self continue spurning him? I can't stand Kansas. I'm guessing a certain recruit noticed this. Native Kansan recruit Mitchell Ballock, a Top 50 shooting guard for 2017, spurned Kansas and committed to Creighton instead. Wichita product Connor Frankamp transferred from Kansas and is now at Wichita State.

    Yeah, after the last two nights my interest in this year's tournament is rapidly waning. Gonzaga, Duke, and Wisconsin were our best teams remaining, now they're all gone. I can support Notre Dame and Syracuse but they are both going to have their hands full on Sunday.

    This is usually about the point where I start watching games; saw Gonzaga's unfortunate collapse at the end last night, though the two White starters on Syracuse were both clutch. But looks like that'll be the only game I watch unless Syracuse or Notre Dame make it to the finals.

    That is what made Duke winning the title around 4 or 5 years ago so enjoyable. Also Wisconsin last year despite them losing to Duke who was led by super freshman Grayson Allen. Hard to believe that almost all of our teams got elimated.

    Im pulling for Notre Damn and Syracuse. That is our bsst options left.

    In another bit of good news. Kansas just got knocked out by Villanova!! Ryan Arcidiacono was clutch down the stretch for the Wildcats again. Another all-black team done.

    Ryan A. With a great game for Villanova knocking off the black Jayhawks. On his birthday.......13 points......4 straight critical free throws in the last minute and a crucial steal. He was the post-game interview

    What a comeback by Syracuse. Many people probably turned off the tv with them down 15 but they came back and won easily. This is a fun team to watch. The Orangemen are now 1 win away from the National Championship Game. Good luck to these guys next weekend in Houston.

    Great to see Virginia out!! The last all-black team left in the tournament is UNC; hopefully, Notre Dame can at least compete with them; the last time they played, it was a 31 point beatdown in the ACC tournament.

    Despite their whopping TWO white contributors, I'm not rooting for Syracuse in the slightest. I wrote this post last year:

    The Orangemen's matchup with the Tar Heels is fitting because both wise, old "Hall of Fame" coaches spent their careers facilitating the ruse of black academic competence, always while singing the praises of social justice, "equality" (never seen on their rosters), and the off-putting hero worship that comes with overblown media attention. While Jim Boeheim and his administration merely flouted the rules of the amateurism, Roy Williams is lucky to still have an accredited university to pay him his millions. That Syracuse has "overcome" Boeheim's suspension for lack of institutional control is a nauseating narrative. I can't wish him success.

    Syracuse's Trevor Cooney has had a great career as a three-point specialist turned full-time starter and versatile contributor. Freshman Tyler Lydon possesses a lethal combination of size and long-range shooting accuracy that could eventually lead to him becoming a dominant player. They are the only two white players signed by Boeheim since 2008 (2 out of 27 scholarships).

    Regardless of Lydon's ceiling and Cooney's "Luke Hancock potential" as game MVP, they are not serious pro prospects right now. Villanova's Arcidiacono and Oklahoma's Spangler have realistic shots at contributing on NBA teams next season and for years to come. A national championship would be a nice resume boost for either of them to help edge out roster competition down the road. For that reason, I hope one of those two emerges victorious. Unfortunately, it's not good enough reason for me to bother watching this Final Four weekend.
