Washington coach Lorenzo Romar tells Q13 TV that his relationship with West Virginia coach Bob Huggins dates back to the days when they were in Cincinnati.
— The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes defense was the key to victory in West Virgina’s 68-59 win over Missouri.
— West Virginia isn’t the type of team that’s happy to be in the Sweet 16. Junior F Cam Thoroughman said: “This year we have one goal — the National Championship.”
— If the second-seeded Mountaineers have a weakness, its their backcourt particularly PG Joe Mazzulla.
— AccuScore, which runs 10,000 simulations, had West Virginia as the winner 55 percent.
— Fascinating poll on ESPN.com in which over 100,000 believe Michigan State is the new favorite to win the national title. Wow. That’s interesting. The Spartans lost their best player Kalin Lucuas and I’m not sure they get past Northern Iowa. Washington has the eighth highest percentage of votes in a question that asks: Which team will win the championship?
