Loyola (MD) 25 - Ohio State 40, 2:48, First Half: I'm starting to think that Nathan isn't much worried.
Loyola (MD) 22 - Ohio State - 37, 4:14: Ohio State are getting their fair share of foul calls, but they are earning them by being aggressive at the basket and taking advantage of incautious play by Loyloa.
Loyola (MD) 22 - Ohio State 31, 6:43, First HalfLoyola protests a foul that seemed fairly clear cut to me, perhaps they're just frustrated because Ohio State is remembering that they are Ohio State.

Loyola (MD) 18 - Ohio State 26, 9:00, First Half So far, Loyola is playing Ohio State fairly well. I'm wondering how Nathan, My Friend Who Is An Ohio State Fan (everyone has one) is taking this.
Loyola (MD) 14 - Ohio State 22, 10:12, First Half Basket status: Both currently intact.
Loyola (MD) 11 - Ohio State 20, 11:54, First Half ELSEWHERE I suppose it's worth mentioning that the Gonzaga and West Virginia went final. You might want to sit down for this, but Gonzaga won 77-54.
Loyola (MD) 7 - Ohio State 12, 13:20, First Half Well this is new. I'm used to coaches cutting down the basket after a big win? That's a fairly dramatic moment. Watching someone attempt to fix a basket turns out to be profoundly less dramatic. After a too long basket-weaving delay, the teams return to the court but seem way too cautious about causing future damage missing bucket after bucket.
Time Out We will NOT be going to Iowa State - Connecticut, as Iowa State is currently up 36-16.
South Dakota St 60 - Baylor 68, Final Baylor wins. South Dakota State loses on their first trip to the tournament, but they made a memorable debut. Baylor are going to have trouble making it through the next round if they play like this.
South Dakota St 60 - Baylor 64, 23.3 , Second Half Baylor misses a three pointer, South Dakota gets it back and... misses as well. After South Dakota gives the foul, Baylor makes both free throws and that's basically the game.
South Dakota St 60 - Baylor 64, 1:13, Second Half South Dakota needed a turnover, a three and a quick timeout in order to remain alive. Baylor gave them the first, and they did the rest on their own. Four point game.
South Dakota St 57 - Baylor 64, 1:22, Second Half The Jackrabbits hit a three and are still alive, just barely. I hate using the term "scrappy," but man are these guys scrappy.
South Dakota St 54 - Baylor 64, 4:03, Second Half South Dakota got the benefit of a goaltending call, but it might not be enough as the Jackrabbits are down by ten and time is growing short.
South Dakota St 52 - Baylor 59, 5:30, Second Half The Jackrabbits (what a nickname) are pesky and persistant, they're refusing to let this game get out of hand.
South Dakota St 48 - Baylor 55, Second Half 7:21 Both teams are doing a lot of scrambling for the ball, which is partly due to a admirable amount of hustle and partly due to players losing track of the ball. It's been fun to watch either way though, uniforms aside.
South Dakota St 44 - Baylor 53, 9:18, Second Half I'm starting to worry that we're jinxing South Dakota State. Everytime they go on a run, we switch over and their shooting goes ice cold.
VCU 62 - Wichita State 59, FINAL Wichita's three pointer is no good, disappointing those of us hoping for overtime, and VCU wins the game.
VCU 62 - Wichita State 59, 12.0, Second Half VCU gets a ridiculous bounce and it's now a three point game. Wow!
VCU 60 - Wichita State 59, 27.2, Second Half A fake, three pointer, a steal and another three pointer gives Wichita the lead, but VCU counters with a three of its own to regain the lead. Less than thirty seconds left in a one point game. Okay, the Madness has now officially begun.
VCU 54 - Wichita State 53, 4:58, Second Half We have a possible thrilling ending going on in this game, which is basically the entire point of the whole tournament, isn't it?
Meanwhile, Kentucky has beaten Western Kentucky 81-66.
S Dakota St 28 - Baylor 36, Halftime: Charles Barkley agrees with me about the uniforms. I'm never sure whether to feel good or bad about my opinion whenever he shares it.
S Dakota St 28 - Baylor 36, Halftime: So far, beyond South Dakota's surprising start, the highlight of the half for me has been a Baylor shot that hit the rim and just stayed wedged there. It's always seemed to me that those rare strange shots should be worth points too. It's a much more difficult shot to pull off than, say, a contested three pointer.
S Dakota St 28 - Baylor 30, 3:13, First Half: Really feel bad for the Jackrabbit kid who just wiped out before making an easy layup.
