Ncaa Selection Show
March 13, 2011 by staff
Ncaa Selection Show, It was almost a lock that junior guard Kemba Connecticut Huskies Walker would lead the No. -seeded Huskies to their seventh Big East tournament championship Saturday night. And Walker did net 19 points in a 69-66 victory over No. 3 Louisville Cardinals, at Madison Square Garden. The 6-foot-1 juniors who scored 26, 24 and 32 in the previous four days, respectively, helped UConn (No. 21 in the AP poll and No. In the USA Today poll / ESPN coaches) polishing the first ever tournament five wins in five days of execution.
As I have been stressing for the whole conference tournament (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4) there is a lot more competition than just scores and game recaps, which just said the essential. So for the last time in 2011, here is a special selection NCAA Show (18 hours on CBS) edition of “What Fans learned” during the 2011 Big East Tournament.
Lesson: 11 teams in the Big East Conference deserve to be in the NCAA tournament come the end of Sunday.
This lesson should probably have been noticed two days ago when the Golden Eagles of Marquette (20-14), who beat the Friars Providence and West Virginia Mountaineers, he made the quarter-final against Louisville (25 – and ranked No. 14 in both polls colleges), but it is more appropriate today. Although the Cardinals destroyed Marquette, 81-56, the program 94-year-old from Milwaukee, WI did enough to punch their ticket in the 68-team field.
For the seeded No. 10-Villanova Wildcats (21-11), who lost to No. 15 USF, 70-69, Tuesday, they are semi-tottering on the bubble after losing five straight games to finish season. (Let’s say the Wildcats are, but nobody would feel outraged if they were left out.) However, “New full body of work, which includes six top-35 victories, will help them win a two-seed figures.
Lesson 2: A Trail Big East tournament title can do wonders for an NCAA Tournament seed.
As of Tuesday, the Huskies have a lock for a No. 5 seed. Now, with five consecutive victories under their belt and Walker as the name of the star of the NCAA can get behind, UConn has vaulted to No. (according to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi).
Syracuse is where his legendary four wins in four days the title run in 2006, Orange has gone from being on the bubble to a No. 5 seed (they lost to No. 12 Texas AM & the first round of the NCAAs).
The great thing UConn (26-9) should worry about running out of gas. Well, it seems that Walker works on futuristic technology of solar power that never runs out, the rest of the Huskies, including head coach Jim Calhoun, who probably would be a nap for three days now, must worry about hitting a wall last season.
