    Nova not looking good, right now. Brackets are shattered. Both these teams look beatable.

    If we can beat UNC, I will feel pretty good about our elite 8 chances. But UNC is worrying me, especially without you know who.

    Napier is just going nuts. He cannot miss.

    Nova had no business being a 2 seed, had them losing this game in every bracket I had.

    Idk, they weren't stretching it out or anything like that. Normally a guy isn't sitting with his legs bent if he's cramping up. From my experience thats not even an option when cramping haha.

    Not cheering for a kid to be injured. If he is, however, a Napier injury definitely levels the playing field with George being out. Provided we get past UNC. The road to the Elite 8 is still open...

    I was wrong about 'Nova. I thought they would show well. I love how that team is built with 3 scorers, a shot blocker, and the token scrappy white guy.

    Man, I hope we beat UNC. UConn is a better matchup for ISU than Nova; Nova's pressure would be more difficult without Niang.

    Also, press UConn. Twice in a row their press break was to try to hand off the ball under the opponent's basket from out of bounds.
