Fifteen minutes will conserve you 15 % or more on car insurance. Everybody understands that.
But, when it comes to this year’;s Last 4, did you know . . .
. . . Florida small forward Jacob Kurtz utilized to be the team manager, handing out socks and washing practice gear? Now he is a player. Awesome.
. . . Wisconsin’;s 7-foot star center Frank Kaminsky talks to himself on the court? He does. A lot. “I’;ll be like, ‘Are you speaking to me?’; ” says his teammate, Duje Dukan. “And he’;ll be like, ‘No. Sorry.’; ” Kaminsky will not reveal what he says to himself. “It really is type of X-rated,” he says. “But generally it’;s something along the lines of ‘WTF, Frank?’; ”
. . . John Calipari is a horrifically underrated coach? You don’;t just have to recruit ’;em. You have to educate ’;em. And at Kentucky, he does. Aside from, if it truly is so straightforward to consider one particular-and-dones and get yourself to the Last 4, then why are Jabari Parker (Duke) and Andrew Wiggins (Kansas) sitting at home right after the very first weekend?
. . . UConn’;s Shabazz Napier, who may be the ideal player in this Ultimate 4, would perform for Puerto Rico if that group will get into the 2016 Olympics? It is the homeland of his mom, Carmen Velasquez. Also cool.
. . . This Ultimate 4 is not in “North Texas,” as the NCAA keeps insisting on all of its brackets? It truly is in Arlington, Texas. What the hell is “North Texas,” anyway? If we have the Ultimate 4 in San Francisco, will the NCAA tell us it really is in “North California”? What, the NCAA is too good for Arlington?
. . . The video display at the Ultimate 4 venue of AT&T Stadium in ARLINGTON, Texas, will be 66 feet longer than the basketball court itself?
. . . Florida senior level guard Scottie Wilbekin has not committed a turnover in his past 94 minutes?
. . . Wilbekin agreed to reside with his parents for a year as penance for untold violations? He did, though Florida has not explained what the parents’; violations had been.
. . . That was a joke?
. . . Only 1 other No. 8 seed has won it all? Villanova, in 1985. But consider of this: Each that Villanova group and this 8-seeded Kentucky staff lost 10 games in the typical season. Each beat Michigan on its way to the Ultimate 4. Each have been coached by Italian-Americans. And both are known as the Wildcats. Eerie.
. . . UConn guard Ryan Boatright committed to USC in the eighth grade? Never went there. Welcher.
. . . Kentucky had the roughest road to this Ultimate 4? It had to beat Kansas State (No. 9 seed), Wichita State (No. 1), Louisville (No. 4), and Michigan (No. 2). Florida had the smoothest: Albany (No. sixteen), Pittsburgh (No. 9), UCLA (No. 4), and Dayton (No.eleven). I have no concept what this indicates.
. . . The Kentucky-Wisconsin matchup attributes a crew that begins 5 freshmen versus a team that begins none? It really is also a No. 8 seed providing 2½ factors to a No. 2 seed, according to Las Vegas. And it matches the fifth-highest beer-consuming state per capita (Wisconsin) versus the 44th beer-drinking 1 (Kentucky). We have no stats on bourbon.
. . . Florida greatest represents its state? It has 9 in-state gamers. Least? UConn: 2. Kentucky has 6, but none start off. I DO know what this implies. Practically nothing.
