    GM beat my favorite team fair and square.

    A few hours ago they beat an even better team
    with a sensational second-half comeback, and a
    heart-wrenching overtime performance.

    My sister went to school at GM (RN). She has never
    been a basketball fan. Maybe this will make her one.

    I hope George Mason wins.

    I think it's a bit outside of Washington DC.

    I would like to see it happen, but I think this is LSU's year. I'll bet not many people picked the teams that ended up in the final four.

    My sister goes to George Mason and was at that game. I was gonna catch the end up it during my lunch break, and thought I would for a second, but then...OVERTIME!!! ARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!! Fortunately, I found out a mere two minutes after the final buzzer, including that tease of a final shot that bounced twice.

    BTW, after being at that game and thw Wichita St. one, my sister can barely talk...quite a change for her.

    4 people out of the 3 million that played on ESPN.com picked the exact final four.

    Absolutely amazing that 4 people picked out the final four teams. I would sure like to know more about those four people and how they did it. If we'd have seen their final four picks on the day the NCAA tourney began, we would have thought they were looney birds.
