Blogging the Final Four

I held off doing this for the Indiana - Oklahoma game, but I think I’ll give it a try as a fun experiment for the Maryland - Kansas game.

They just finished the pre game introductions.

Billy Packer is giving his pregame analysis. Jim Nance is okay, but Billy has really grown to annoy me over the last couple years.

Maryland wins the tip. Wilcox misses and Kansas rebounds. Gooden missed his first shot of the game. Both teams have started in man to man defense.

BP raves about Chris Wilcox jumping ability and shot blocking capabilities. Score is still 0.

Collison scores first for Kansas. Mouton just threw it away for Maryland.

Kansas goes inside out and misses, but Hinrich just nailed a three and then Blake turned the ball over on a length of court pass.

Offensive foul on Baxter. Both teams score on layups, but Baxter just picked up his second foul.

BP observes that Collison did a better job of getting position in the early minutes than Baxter thus Lonnie ends up on the bench.

7-2 Maryland. The Terps are struggling and Hinrich just hit another three. 10-2 as we go to commercial.
