Better-late-than-never links:
— In case you missed it, here was my season wrapup that ran in the paper today. I’ll do a bigger version of the player evaluations sometime soon (admittedly have to reintroduce myself to my kids this week so may not have everything all at once. But it’s a long off-season so plenty of time now to chew it all over).
— A second-day story on Purdue points out how important experience was for the Boilermakers down the stretch. This was the third straight year they’d been to the second round so they were more familiar with all of it than UW.
Jon Brockman thanked UW fans on his Twitter page.
Jon Wilner says the Pac-10’s NCAA tourney performance was pretty predictable.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports, meanwhile, says it’s ridiculous to say the Pac-10 was inferior to other conferences this year just because of what happened this weekend.
— The Oregonian says Portland is likely to get more NCAA tourneys down the road based on the success of this weekend (which was no doubt helped by getting local teams like UW and Gonzaga to fill the arena).
— Besides Arizona, two other Pac-10 teams remain in the post-season — Stanford and Oregon State in the CBI. And who doesn’t want to see those two play for a fourth time this season?
— And great turnout for the tourney pool through ESPN.com. The leader after the first two rounds is J. Sky with 560 points and a team still alive as a possible champ in Louisville. I’m in a group tied for 58th with 500 points (and Pitt as my champ). But looks as if there are more than 550 entries, a nice showing. Once again, I’ll try to send a little something to the winner/winners.
All for now.
