Night Tournament Talk

JOSEPH.YOUNGThe Pac-12 finally loses a game as Oregon falls to No. 1-seeded Wisconsin. But what a season for the Ducks, who were picked to finish 8th in the conference preseason poll (two spots above USC) and won 27 games along with an appearance in the Pac-12 Tournament title game. It’s called o-v-e-r-a-c-h-i-e-v-e-m-e-n-t.

What about Northern Iowa? Is there Cinderella season over?

UPDATED: Louisville knocks out Northern Iowa so yes it is over for the Panthers. The Pac-12 has three teams in the Sweet 16. The conference of champions!

Blast From The Past

TREPAGNIERNext year will be the 15th anniversary of USC’s Elite Eight team but hey, why not remember a bit now with the NCAA Tournament dominating this weekend. The Trojans upset Boston College, 74-71, in Uniondale, N.Y. on March 18, 2001. The hero was reserve point guard Robert Hutchinson, who made five free throws in the final 1:17 to seal the victory. Jeff Trepagnier (above) had 18 points and David Bluthenthal 20.

Then came the heartwarming day after when Coach Henry Bibby told the team he would show them New York City and took them to dinner at Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).
