Welcome to the latest edition of Talking Hoops with Ted Sarandis. Here, we look back at the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, which was memorable for a lot of reasons.
We start by looking back at the game that will probably be most remembered, when Texas A&M overcame a 12-point deficit with 44 seconds left to force overtime and ultimately win in double overtime. Other games that stood out are discussed as well.
Next, we expand upon the reality that even with all the notable upsets, all four No. 1 seeds remain, one region has the top four seeds left and another has the top three and the No 5 seed. It appears that even with all the upsets, in the grand scheme of things they merely seem to pave the way for the top seeds to keep advancing later, with one region standing out in this respect.
With that, we take a look ahead to this weekend’s matchups, which include some dandies as you might expect.
Ted also gives a plug to one of his co-hosts on College Basketball Tonight, former college basketball head coach Mike Jarvis, who has a new book out entitled Everybody Needs a Head Coach.
