Duke lost. North Carolina lost. Tennessee lost. I can live with all those outcomes.

Who had Loyola in the Elite 8???! Cause I didn't....

As a Rogers Park resident, if I'd done a bracket, I would have.

I most certainly did not; now I'm kicking myself for having them lose in the first round. Ergo, I'll be rooting for them in the Final Four, just as I have throughout the tourney.

But that's exactly why I DIDN'T do a bracket, because I wouldn't have done any research, and done stupid shit like have Loyola go all the way, and then I would've won my office tourney, and that's not the way to do it.

In yesterday night's exciting women's semi-finals, UConn was knocked out of the tournament for the second year in a row. Its game against Notre Dame went to overtime, as did the win by Mississippi State (the team that beat UConn in last year's semis) over Louisville.

There is some hope for women's college hoops, now that UConn's dominance is eroding.

Feel like the last thing holding this state together just came unglued.  Last year was a fluke.  Now it's a pattern.  Turned out to be a battle of who could puke on their shoes last, and UConn did it.  Seems death and taxes (a death tax, and being taxed to death) are the only sure things left now in CT.

Last year was a fluke.  This year is how it's supposed to end every year.

Nova wins their 2nd tournament in 3 years. And for the Philly area in general, their 3rd major championship victory in 3 years as well, topped with the Eagles Superbowl Victory 2 months ago.

Again, I get a great failure on my main bracket but I correctly predict the Champion on my second bracket! :-D Congratulations Nova!

This is only the third year since the women's tournament started that private universities have won both men's and women's tournaments in the same year.

1992 Duke men/Stanford women
2001 Duke men/Notre Dame women
2018 Villanova men/Notre Dame women
