DIME SMACK: Subdued Madness

What was supposed to be an overwhelming day of March Madness just wasn't what it could have been. We hit the sports bar, the food was great, the company was great, and the games were ridiculous, but it was hard not to be distracted by the war. The bar had as many TV's broadcasting the news as it had showing hoop. Just a strange day to say the least. The end of the /Wisconsin-Milwaukee game was what it's all about. Down one with the ball and under 30 seconds to go, UWM, instead of calling a timeout, put the ball in the hands of its best player, , and let him run down the clock. With a few ticks left, he beat his man into the lane and dumped it off to a big man for what looked like a wide-open layup. ND's came flying in and got just enough of the shot to make it miss. Ballgame. ... By the way, the entire ND team shaved their heads for the Tournament. Sooo, did Kansas have money on their game or something last night? They looked awful, playing listlessly to a three-point win over . Not a good sign for the person in the Dime office who picked Kansas to win the whole thing in his bracket. After all the hype all season about and their guy , they were one and done against last night. And actually they weren't even really in the game. They made a run at the end to make it close, but Kyle, who collected 21 points when they were getting housed, was nowhere to be found when they needed buckets the most. NBA player our ass ... Not gonna lie. Watching the Dukies squirm and almost blow it against was a lot of fun. ... Leave it to Bob Huggins to get tossed from an NCAA Tournament game. We love that guy. For all of you stuck in the office yesterday afternoon, Mizzou flat out got lucky to take home a win after an awful call with 4.1 seconds left in the game. 's decided to drive through ' instead of kicking it to the open man in the corner and instead of rewarding Dearman after he stepped up and took a perfect charge, the ref called it a blocking foul on Dearman. Paulding hit one out of two free throws to give Mizzou a one point lead with 4 ticks remaining. Game. Set. Match. ... UConn might have beaten BYU but is the Dime player of the day. Dude plays with Ben-Wallace-sized heart even with that bleached blonde hair. Hansen had 21 points, all of which were spectacular. ... Speaking of Ben, he had his fifth straight game of 20 or more rebounds last night in the ' bashing of the Sixers. He had a block on an AI drive that may have been the swat of the year. During the pregame of the vs. game, TNT showed a taped segment with where Kobe looked to have very strategic swoosh's just about everywhere a solid PR person at Nike would place them. ... We caught the end of that game after the college hoops was over. There a definite playoff intensity goin' on in Arco as Sac-Town won. How sick would a -Kings first round playoff matchup be? It's close to coming down that way. We're out like Huggs and his sweater vests.
