A huge day of hoops lies ahead with the men’s tourney resuming and the women’s tourney getting underway. (Reminder that the Wolfpack ladies are up at 10 p.m. tonight.)
We didn’t get as much drama as one would like on Thursday—Northern Kentucky kept it close with Houston for a while, but otherwise the night session was a snoozer. Of course, there was more than enough drama if you’re a Virginia fan.
With Duke through and UVA gone, the rest of the ACC is up today, beginning with Pittsburgh, which was extremely fortunate to beat Mississippi State in Dayton. They have anything in the tank for Iowa State? And how vulnerable is Miami if Norchad Omier can’t play? I won’t be surprised if Drake wins that one.
And of course there’s NC State in the second session, in what has the potential to be a highly entertaining game. Make sure the beer is cold, everybody!
