Spokane: Wow.

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

Winthrop is a bit scary right now. They are doing everything right -- taking charges, moving the ball and going right at ND's Kurz, who can't do much besides back up and hope to not get called for a foul down low.

The big screen is playing a cool puzzle game where you have to guess the former NCAA basketball player ... he graduated in three years with a degree, helped lead UConn to a title ... It's totally Emeka Okafor!

Yesssssssssss, I was right. Where's my prize?

Thank goodness Winthrop is winning this game. My friends were starting to doubt my basketball genius after the disaster yesterday (really, Duke, are you kidding me? And Texas Tech ... come on Bobby! And don't get me started on Gonzaga.) I have Kansas winning it all. Naturally, this means they will lose in the first round. But my friend told me he thinks they'll dominate in the opening round, giving me a glimmer of hope before falling in 32. Super.

Notre Dame is spending a lot of time on the floor, but it's not because of hustle. It's more like, "Oh crap, we just turned the ball over ... we better try to get on that." It's not working very well.

I'm pretty impressed with the Notre Dame freshmen, but Carter really needs to get something done offensively. This is the time of year when your best player is supposed to put you on his back and take you places. Carter's not doing that. He's settling for a lot of outside shots and they're not falling. He needs to get to the line to get his stroke back. But right now he's on the bench so it might be hard to do that.

Winthrop leads 54-34 with 12:12 to go.
