NCAA Final Four 2002

It's time!

I see a close game with Kansas and maryland.

Oklahoma should roll Indiana, unless the Hoosiers shoot lights out like they did against my Golden Flashes.

I say Big 12 final with Kansas taking on Oklahoma.

You underestimate Steve Blake, Lonnie Baxter, and Juan Dixon.

Period.

Oklahoma- MD final.

MD trounces them.

I say it could go either way...as much as I don't like Kansas they are good. So is Maryland. I don't see a blowout in any game though.

Indiana coming back this is a better game than I expect. McGhee & Ere are impressing me. I don't know if Cincinnati could've beat Oklahoma if they played.

If youre not watching already this Indiana-Oklahoma game is really good. Kelvin Sampson needs to get out of this zone because IU is knocking down outside shots......I say man-to-man like they did the first half. Also Hollis Price needs some looks bad.

Jesus Indiana wins again. This is crazy! Once again they hit those 3 pt shots in the 2nd half. I thought Oklahoma played pretty bad though....nothing from the back court. Hollis Price had a nightmare game and White didnt do much. They shouldve pressured IU in the back court because Coverdale wasnt full strength. And then McGhee fouling out early was huge.

Steve Blake sucks. I'm better than him.

Geez Tiger, you just had to pick Kansas over Maryland. Just had to jinx the Jayhawks didn't ya?

I mean, the way you pick em, I think you picked Kansas just so they'd lose.

Their down by 19 at the moment. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

Yeah, I probably did knowing me. I actually dont like Kansas but was rooting for them (what was in that szechwan shrimp I had tonight?). Surprised that Maryland dominated like that. But once that 20 pt lead started chipping away I started thinking "Hmmmm". It was 87-82 then Langford (or was it Miles) got called for taking steps which just blew their chance of winning the game. Hinrich and Gooden saddled with foul trouble. Gooden sucked tonight. I never really thought he was as good as people made him out to be.

I say Indiana wins now.

Hey, at least Kent State may have lost to the eventual National Championship. Mike Davis still sucks.

Oh, and Im still better than Steve Blake (That dude looks goofy as hell!). Way to almost blow that huge lead MD lol.

No, Indiana doesn't really have too much of a chance, unless they really do some amazingly uncharacteristic things.

Indiana is good at playing very prepared teams. Maryland, especially Dixon and Wilcox, are athletic and confident to make non-planned plays. Indiana's upsets were mostly from "creative" teams this year. Maryland is a top-notch NCAA squad in technical aspects, and they have players that can mix it up. Double whammie for Indiana.

Works again! I said Indiana, they lose! Bwahahahaha!

This was a crazy game. I was watching thinking "Hmm when are they gonna score?" there for a while. I dont think either team played very well, and IU made a couple mistakes late after they got close that really cost them.

Fear the Turtle!!

Maryland played horribly, they outclassed IU talentwise in just about every category. That was an ugly-ass game.

I'd have to say that was the ugliest worst basketball game I've ever seen. A middle school could've scored that many points. Why does IU pick the regional final to make like 20 3 pointers? I was ready to buy my Kent State Golden Flashes South regional Champs Final Four shirt! They are true ballers.

Look out for me in the upcoming years. My shot is sick, no doubt.

Speaking as a Marylander, that game did suck. But we won!

Hoosier: A person from indiana. Or a uneducated simpleton. (Really! Go look it up)
