Louisville won it all on Monday night, bringing an incredible season to an exciting conclusion. Here are a few thoughts on college basketball as we enter the off-season and the MLB and NBA Playoffs take center stage in American sports theater.
-The game on Monday night was great. A game of runs, both teams were hitting shots and pushing the tempo to a rapid pace.
-I doubt another mid-major will get a one seed in the near-future after Gonzaga’s uninspiring showing in the tourney.
-Peyton Siva was tremendous in the final four. I will miss watching him play.
-Michigan will be interesting to watch next season. They will lose a ton of talent this off-season.
-I want an NCAA Tourney game on an aircraft carrier! That would be sweet.
-Zeller and Oladipo are headed to the NBA. Watford too. How will Indiana do next season?
-I’ve mentioned now that Michigan and Indiana are both going to lose a lot this off-season. I bet that the Big Ten is no better than the third best conference in basketball next season (even with an up-and-coming Iowa poised to explode).
And that’s all. Enjoy the off-season college basketball fans!
