What is your likeliest to least likeliest #1 seed to fall this weekend

1. UConn

2. Pitt

3. Louisville

4.UNC

I think Missouri and Nova have shots to realistically pull it off. Oklahoma and Mich St not so much.

Pitt and Nova are playing the game of the tournament right now.

Just fantastic play by both teams. By far the best game of the tournament so far.

Did you really expect anything less when two BEasts match up? ;)

Yes, with the way Pitt has played so far in the tourney.

What a fantastic game though. They just kept throwing haymakers back and forth Reynolds, Cunningham, etc for Nova and Young, Blair, Fields etc for Pitt. Just an incredible game. The NoVa boy Scottie Reynolds wins it in the end.

Classic tournament game, where the Elite 8 usually tends to provide some of the great ones. Just recently off the top of my head, Carolina-Georgetown in '07, George Mason-UCONN (I was there!) in '06, and Arizona-Illinois in '05.

This might have been the best of them all, honestly, in terms of the level of play of both teams. Just a great, great basketball game.

GREAT GREAT Basketball game. One of those "it's a shame someone had to lose" types. Congrats to Villanova.

Way to go Scottie with the game winning basket. As I've said before I went to high school with the guy and was a grade ahead of him. What a great game. I have UNC winning the whole thing but I am rooting for Scottie and the Wildcats.

The pride of Herndon High, Scottie that is. And it was a great game. Glad I stayed home to watch it.

Agreed... Games like that are why I love College Basketball... It is great to get that into games where I really didn't have a rooting interest for either team.

Agree 100%.

Best game of the tournament by far, and the best-played game by both teams that I've seen in quite some time.

One of the best tourney games I've seen.

I'm watching the Pitt press conference now, and man, i feel bad for those kids. I did have 'Nova in my Final Four, so for pride I was rooting for them, but I didn't have much rooting interest otherwise.

Interesting note, IF Carolina wins tomorrow, an ACC team has not beaten a Big East team in the Final Four since 1982.

Reminds me of what DeJuan Blair was saying about the Big East vs the ACC:

"The Big East is going to be tough, no matter what," said Pittsburgh's DeJuan Blair, a 6-foot-7, 265-pound big man who was the conference's co-player of the year. "The ACC — you really can't compare them. They're like rocks and cotton. We're just toughness, we're not finesse players."

As much as I'd love to see the BEast have success in the Final Four the game I am hoping for (if both teams can advance tomorrow) is Louisville / UNC.

Great, great piece of coaching by Jay Wright. After a terrible inbounds play kept Pitt in the game. He calls his final timeout and draws up a beautiful play to get the ball in his scorer's hand with the defense off balance. Brilliant.

I'm not a Big East guy, but this conference was really been the Big Deal this year. Three number ones, and a possibility of three Final Four teams. Remarkable.

That's who I have going for the championship with UNC winning. Honestly though with Nova making the final four I am definitely going for them regardless of my bracket's status. I probably would just want my bracket to work out if I didn't have a connection to Nova but I want Reynolds to go all the way.
