Yale joins the I beat Auburn club. Clutch down the stretch. Rough 24 hours for the SEC.

I thought the SEC was supposed to be a power conference and had a lot of money. Doesn't that automatically translate to deep tournament runs?

Need more SEC teams in the tourney so they can lose more games. Geez Greg Sankey.

100% That is why I am not big into this NIL stuff. I am not spending extra money I don't have on something that is not a guarantee. SEC draws the most money and has the most NIL contributions but the league has had a rough first round.

Now we see why they want the auto-bids eliminated.
When will "It's better than what we had" no longer be good enough for App State?

Except for Edey I haven't heard any mention of a lottery pick in any game. Absolutely idiotic to pay big money to 18-22 year olds who are playing pressure games.

JMU routing Wisconsin, as expected.

We beat JMU by blocking all their early shots, forcing their game outside. Abson alone had 40 more blocks this year than the entire Wisconsin team.

Madison is finishing the season in better fashion than we did. I guess they get the last laugh.

I’m not sure JMU can keep up the pace. Not convinced they win this one.

They look better than Wisconsin. I think they could give Duke problems too. We beat them twice but we match up well against them. I do think they were probably the best Sun belt team we could have sent to the dance.

Would be cool to see them get to the sweet 16.

12 seed was ridiculous. Took a flyer on them to reach the Sweet 16 along with Grand Canyon. Might make a little $

I agree. Whether we all want to admit it or not, JMU has been the one of the best (if not the best) mid majors from start to finish. They are 31-3 for a reason. We matched up well and were able to take away their strength, but I don’t believe we would be beating Wisconsin this handily. They have controlled the entire game.

I know the word “deserving” gets over used in sports, but they are very deserving of the run I think they will go on. We will also get a nice chunk of change which won’t hurt.

They have finished the season playing with a lot of confidence and that's what it takes to win in the tournament playing a lower seeded team like Wisconsin. They took the game to the Badgers and have kept them off balance the entire game.

Capturing the regular season title was a tremendous accomplishment especially since we hadn't done it in 40+ years. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this squad this year. But, it does seem that our season started a downward trajectory after winning and celebrating that title.
