Third double seed to reach

The final four, before VCU rams there was LSU in 1986 and George Mason in 2006, now 11th seed Rams outplayed the nr 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks.

Because I´m been working like a maniac the last 4 weeks I have only seen small parts of games, so this game was actually my first full game and I truly enjoyed it.

Rams doesn´t play as static as many teams do and that makes them so much harder to controll. The had a couple of minutes in the second half where they started to hesitate and became stuck in the offense, but they shook it of them. But with a lot of help from Kansas, they didn`t reach their capacity at all of course VCU did a good job, but where Kansas failed was in their heads, the weren`t mentally prepaired for a underdog with a young coach that thinks he can move mountains and gets his players to beleive that also....and he did, they di move a mountain tonite.

Kansas is out, Duke is out.....11th seed VCU is still in it and they are going for gold. Believe that!

And by the way, great with a young coach only 33 years old, maybe people can understand that leadership, basketball knowhow is not garanteed just because you are old. Experience is age based, but coaching is not.


  1. This has been one the strangest tournaments I’ve ever seen. VCU’s win sets up a historic game with Butler, two unranked teams in Final Four game. This occurrence says a lot about college basketball today, anyone can win it all.

  2. Yeah, it is a strange tournament and I think surprises is still to come.

    Nice that there is no sure winner each year nowdays. More programs have skilled players and the depth of D1 ball is getting better every year.
