BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Friday evening saw a team from Texas victorious over a Big 12 opponent and two traditional football powers go at it. It wasn’t off tackle and screen passes. Rather, the ball screens and pressure defense was the order of the evening. The later doubleheader in the NCAA first round at Barclays Center saw Stephen F. Austin dominate West Virginia. In the final game of the night, Notre Dame used a strong second half to end michigan’s season.
Stephen F. Austin’s win brought to mind why a number of brackets have been shredded before the first weekend ended. Did you say Michigan State Final Four? Upsets have become the norm for several reasons.
