Tonight in LA, LMU beat Brown on the strength of James Batemon's 21 points, 81-63.
We know GU made it through to the Elite Eight to play Texas Tech, but LMU was not so fortunate, ending their season with a loss to South Florida, 56-47, with no LMU player scoring in double figures.

And another #1 seed falls. GU fell short today, undone by the tenacious defense of Texas Tech and the refs letting them play physical. Looking at the box score, I note a few things:
- Zags had 16 turnovers, several were fumbles by Hachimura assessed to the passer. Others were due to Tech's defenders reaching in and knocking the ball away.
- Norvell was 2-9 from 3Pt, the team was 7-26 for 27%. Tech made 9 of 23, and won by 6 points.
- Kispert played 25 minutes, scored zero points. Tillie only played 11 minutes.
- Tillie's 3 points were the only GU bench points. TTech had 14 bench points.

Final Four is set. The best team in KenPom, Virginia; the best team from the Big Ten, Michigan St.; the best team from the Big 12, Texas Tech; and the hottest team from the SEC, Auburn. That's a #1, a #2, a #3 and a #5 seed. Who ya got?

UVA is favored by 1.5 over TT; it opened at 1. I took the under sight unseen. It is set at 117.5 or 118 Shocked. That is a defensive battle.
