March Madness: Stephen Curry Day

Is there really anything else to talk about? The 10th seeded Davidson Wildcats have shocked the tournament knocking off tourney darlings Gonzaga, the Big East regular season champion Georgetown Hoyas, and last night the Big 10 regular season champs, the Wisconsin Badgers. By now you have already heard the name Stephen Curry and why wouldn't you? Curry has scored 30+ points in each of Davidson's three games but it isn't just Curry. Last night while methodically picking apart Wisconsins defense setting 2 and 3 screens each trip down the court to get shots for Curry, guard Jason Richards (13 assists) and forward Andrew Lovedale roughed up the Badgers. Over the next two days we are going to see clip after clip of the Cinderella run of Geroge Mason in 2006, well my friends Davidson is not George Mason. Davidson is the real deal and they expect to be there, just ask Head Coach Bob McKillop who after Davidson's 73-56 win against Wisconsin said "that's Steph, and I expect that of him." Coach McKillop you may be right, but the rest of America didn't see this coming, we are all impressed.

I know I said that there wasn't much else to talk about, thats because there wasn't:

Memphis rolled up Michigan State, with a 50-20 lead before the half Coach Cal was urging his players to push the ball up the floor, you think Memphis isn't playing with a giant chip on their shoulder?

Kansas looked like the best team in the country after finishing off Jay Wright and Villanova. With only eight schools remaining in the field, Villanova was the last of the Big East teams with a shot before Kansas just proved to be to strong, to good, and to big for Nova'.

Texas, playing a home game, didn't care about two of a kind Brook and Robin Lopez, with an 82-62 victory over the Cardinal. Augustin and the final #2 seed left in the tourney toyed with Stanford in the second half, and cruised to an early win.
