    Night of Champions 2019 March Madness Discussion Thread


    With the tournament starting tonight with the first two of four play-in games, I figured those of us that will be watching should have a place to discuss all the buzzer beaters, Cinderella stories and everything else that makes this tournament so great. I always take Thursday and Friday off so that I won't miss any of the games so I'm sure to be in here sharing my thoughts as they shake out. In the meantime, if you haven't done so and are interested, don't forget to sign up for Doom's bracket challenge right here...

    Let's hope for a great tournament with plenty of surprises and a deserving winner!

    Yeah I can't really complain I've been without work for a little bit and things have turned around the past three weeks so I'm working more days and hours per week. I'm pretty sure I'll be see able to Nova's first Round game, but I'm sure I'll miss the earlier games no doubt. Temple vs Belmont with the night game though might really need to decide to see SD or that game

    I had them going deep until they lose to Duke in the Elite 8. Looks like Michigan State got the game won with a nine point lead, yet.

    I have them losing to North Carolina in the finals so I'm glad they managed to hang on. Hopefully they look better next game.

    I've got Maryland over Belmont in this one so my fingers are crossed.

    Gonzaga vs. Purdue here

    Been a Zag's fan for 20+ years, so I pick them every year. Eventually I'll be right.

    St.Mary is hanging too tough with Nova for my liking right now. Second half Wildcats come out firing!

    Gonzaga's being the hell out of Fairleigh Dickinson 60-31, with over 14 minutes left in the game.

    Nevermind what I said.

    I've picked Kentucky after all.

    Re: 2019 March Madness Discussion Thread

    I really dislike Nevada after their fluke wins last year cost me money so I'm happy to see Florida knock them out in the first round.

    In other news, I'm rooting for St. Mary's because I picked them but neither of these teams look particularly good right now. If Purdue takes care of business against Old Dominion, they should have no trouble knocking off either of these two on Saturday.

    Villanova held on tight against St. Mary's 61-57. For a minute there, I thought St. Mary's would make the points in the last minute. What a scare for Villanova cause I've picked them to play Duke in the championship. That would kill my bracket if they had lost that game.

    Well it wasn't pretty but Nova moves on with a win over St.Mary. Tough opponent who played them hard the whole game which will hopefully not have them as slugish as they were in the first half. They had all kinds of trouble with St.Mary big lineup, they did just enough to get through that and ink out a win. Purdue if they won on will be a major problem for them Saturday.

    Hope you're right brother.

    Stunning upset by #13 seed UC-Irvine over #4 seed Kansas State 70-64. They said it was the first tournament win in school history.

    Right now, my bracket looks like crap with all the losses. Gotta bounce back!

    Meanwhile, Virginia is only up by 1 over Garnder-Webb. I don't even care if it messes up my bracket, it would be amazing to see Virginia lose to a #16 two years in a row.

    Kansas State looked dead towards the end of that game, they deserved to lose.

    Have you guys ever been so tired that even standing makes you want to fall asleep? Really went hard today at work probably too hard, but I'm in a job where you'e going to be hurting all over it's apart of the job. I see I got my Oklahoma pick over Ole Miss right, bummer Kansas State loss, and Oregon winning over Wisconsin

    Yep, it's normally about the time I pour myself a stiff glass of Johnnie Walker and "relax".

    I'm not too stoked about Wisconsin losing seeing as I had them going to the Elite 8 but in this tournament anything can happen so it's all good.

    You sound like my Uncle his also drink of choice. I would join ya with some Dew on the Rocks, but I agree with the way some of these elite teams have been playing we could see more upsets coming.

    Down goes #5 Mississippi State, being upsetted by #12 Liberty? 80-76! There goes two SEC teams in the first round.

    And my bracket continues to suffer agonizing losses. I need to count how many of the teams I've picked, lost their games in these couple days.

    But, these games have been a roller coaster ride.

    Duke had a slow start against North Dakota State, but they managed to overpower them with Zion's presence. Duke can't let the other team score early like today, it could catch up with them later on.

    Both Tennessee and Virginia had slow starts, but I'm glad they overcame their opponents by advancing to the Next round.

    Yep, that was a hell of a game and I’m just glad I took Liberty.
