March is always the favorite month of mine. I often chose to watch NCAA Tournament games than going to Cancun or Key West for a traditional spring break with college students. Except for one time when I was so ready to go to Key West ... even when I was in Myrtle Beach with The Helmuth, I managed to check the TV for any upsets in the NCAA Tournament few years ago.
The conference tournaments has been happening all over the weekend. Virginia Cavaliers did not play well, they managed to squeeze by Florida State in an overtime and leading as many as 17 points before choking to the Tar Heels in the Semifinals of the ACC Tournament. They finished the season at 20-10 and will be invited to the NCAA Tournament once again. I'd love to see them play Connecticut Huskies and shock the world. Or even Tennessee.
Speaking of Tennessee, Tennessee pulled a nailbiter win over No. 1 Louisiana State in SEC Championship Game after Tameka Johnson lost control of her ball and was stolen by Tennessee in the closing seconds which Shyra Ely nailed the winning shot.
Crapola! Both teams will still head out to the NCAA Tournament. It should be a fun tournament. Lots of stuff to follow up.
Let the Party begin -- oh, by the way, needless to say, I'm looking forward to party hard on 17th of March. NYC has a thing for Irish.
