Nice to see Wisconsin advance with a team that looks like it's auditioning for Hoosiers: The Sequel rather than the NBA.
Biggest Lead: Bucks 23 Pacers 0
Ilyasova and Pachulia back to start fourth quarter - Bucks with 85-74 lead.
The ACC is now 12-2 w/ Notre Dame's win & UNC's loss. Duke, Louisville, NC State up Friday.
Mayo finally hits a three, and of course Miles sticks a 27-footer in response. 85-74 after three after foul-plagued third.
Avocado here should ok
Dexter Miles just brought West Virginia ar 30 point beatdown...at least
What has Reggie been saying for the last two hours? I'm lost.
I just hope that Friday's Knicks-Celtics game can live up to this Wisconsin-UNC game.
Horrible time management by Carolina. Foul immediately Wow. Really?
Of course UNC would hit 5 straight threes, but then blow it at the line.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel takes Solomon Hill out because player was angry over foul. Hill still gets T'd up on bench. Bucks 82, Pacers 67.
In Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time" video, there are so many people in the studio, but Rick James the only one working
Wizards are expected to sign Will Bynum as early as Friday. Team will release Toure Murry who sprained an ankle Monday at Golden State.
Solomon Hill picks up a technical foul form the bench. He had been beefing w/ the official for that last offensive foul.
Two words that I am uttering with the hesitancy of Enrico Pallazzo calling that first strike: Go....Carolina.
Gave Sam Dekker to the Spurs in my NBA mock. That's just not fair.
Sam Dekker certainly has played like he is a first round pick tonight.
Congrats to Mike Brey. ACC upgraded by adding Boeheim, Pitino and Dixon. Brey got very little attention in that add-on. He's excellent.
Marcus Paige.......I like basketball, FYI
Marcus Paige is making this game memorable
College basketball is really fun this time of year, man
Giannis finds Duds for the open 3, but he Favres it -- just slips out of his hands and flies back out of bounds. How things are going for J.
Sam Dekker with a big-time move. Needs to step up with Kaminsky struggling a bit tonight.
Want to know why TV sports fees keep rising ...? Precisely because of events like NCAA Final 4. Live theater without knowing the outcome.
Dekker's ready for the league
Jared Dudley had a Jameis moment with that ball slipping out of his hands as soon as he raised it to shoot.
Report is Spooner left game in first half to have his knee looked at. He just returned.
Can't ask for more than this in a Sweet 16 game.
big time shot
Dudley and Bayless back in game after timeout.
Hibbert's tired, so he throws a blatant shoulder into Henson going up for a shot, then complains. Related: I've never liked Roy Hibbert.
Oh, and here comes Bill Spooner back on the court during this timeout at the 5:29 mark. Maybe everyone's catching allergic reax to this gm
Now Bill Spooner is back, just taking off his jacket at scorer's table.
Traevon Jackson looking much better than I thought he would after such a long layoff. Bo Ryan trusting him in crunch time.
MCW's used post ups to get up three straight good looks (Henson make, Giannis make, Henson miss).
Thirteen fouls called already in third quarter not halfway through.
Pointed out at press row, lead ref Bill Spooner didn't return to the floor after the first half. Only Scott Wall & Marat Kogut officiating.
Babcock should put Kellen Moore in.
Roy Williams is so hard to judge because sometimes his teams get run on with no response. Then again he's a really good coach
Just realized David West's allergic reaction is really nerves. Xavier tips against Arizona soon.
Two refs but plenty of whistles.
Not saying he solves all or any woes, but been waiting for Will Bynum on the Wizards for like two years.
Roy should have taken a timeout a possession earlier.
Why Roy Williams didn't call timeout three possessions ago, I'll never know
Citing team free throw percentage is one of the most bizarre practices in hoops analysis. Only one guy goes to the line at a time, right?
Roy Hibbert having one of those "Where Is He?" sort of games. Steps into midrange to knock down only his 2nd FG. He's played 16 mins
Giannis with the long jumper from the corner.
They play "Git Yo' Freak On" pretty much every time the Greak Freak scores here. Never "Super Freak," which is kinda disappointing.
Mike Brey is a winner. Period. He can flat out coach.
Scola hit with a Flagrant 1… seems like he's punished for being 1. behind the play, 2. 34 years old and 3. no ability to jump.
The Bucks have been bad at a lot of things the past few weeks, but I love how they always pass ahead to guys. If you run, you get rewarded.
Looking forward to getting to Cuse tomorrow, crack open a DC, forget to put it in an NCAA cup and get the stink eye from a security guard
Scola fouls MCW on dunk attempt and it is being reviewed. Scola and Bucks bench exchanged some pleasantries. Ruled flagrant-1 foul.
Play currently under review as a flagrant foul.
G. Hill scores then completely loses Michael Carter-Williams on the return trip down the court. MCW goes to rim, fouled by Scola
Ref Bill Spooner not on court for second half.
The Wizards are signing Will Bynum, according to source.
Toure' Murry played two more minutes than Otto Porter over the last three games and didn't play Wed. with an ankle injury.
Is this the final minute of Gregg Marshall's coaching career at Wichita? Could be the case.
Dear Basketball Gods -- Ron Hunter is out of the tourney. Please leave your mitts off Nigel Hayes. Regards, Fans of basketball, pressers
Heels doing a good job of dictating tempo. But a long way to go.
Pacers outscore Bucks in second quarter, 32-25. Indiana is 8 of 15 from 3-point range.
Believe the CBA rule is a player cannot be traded until after 90 days of signing a contract. 90 days puts at the day before draft night.
As efficient as Notre Dame was offensively this season, this should not come as a shock. Still feels like it.
HT: Bucks 59, Pacers 47. Ilyasova with 22 on 9-of-10 shooting. Miles tops Pacers with 17 points.
Roy Hibbert pretty close to having one of those 0 of everything Roy Hibbert games.
Did Marv just say Kentucky is getting ready to face Virginia?
Guess Digger Phelps returns to TVs over next 36 hours as the world remembers the time Notre Dame upset the best of the best.
Low point for Solomon Hill? Just bit on a shot fake by MCW.
Only 22 points in 12 min for Ersan Ilyasova!
We've still got 4 minutes to go in this first half, and Ersan Ilyasova already has reached his season-high of 22 points
I don't believe for a second Utah State made a run at Herb Sendek, lol...that just doesn't sound right
Notre Dame is 14 of its last 16 from the field. Irish putting on a clinic. Such a benefit having two point guards -- Grant and Jackson.
HOBO ERSAN IS DEAD LONG LIVE ERSANITY http://t.co/DxW3kWBM3R
Ilyasova did not cool off while on the bench. Scores underneath, then another 3. MCW picks Lavoy Allen and dunks. Bucks 50, Pacers 34.
Ilyasova returns and promptly scores 5 straight points. Has 22 points and still 4:34 left in half.
Lavoy Allen left alone on an island as MCW sneaks behind him and strips the ball. That turnover has got to be on his teammate
Irish look awfully, awfully good. Contributions from everyone.
Notre Dame offense looking like a video game.
Resolved: If Fred VanVleet were 2 inches taller, he'd be a lottery pick.
Zach Auguste just killed a guy.........
Bucks' 19-pt lead after 1st q is now 10 midway through 2nd period.
Dudley passes up an open 3 to pass it to MCW, whose three gets caught by a heavy gust of wind.
How long will Wichita State be able to keep Gregg Marshall in the fold ...
C.J. Miles vs Everybody in this quarter
Bucks had big lead at 34-11 but Pacers coming back behind Miles, who just hit back-to-back 3s. Bucks 41, Pacers 31 with 7:02 left in half.
CJ Miles must be terrible whenever I'm not watching, because he's a beast whenever I do.
There’s a chance Wizards re-sign Murry when he’s healthy if they don’t sign Will Bynum. If no Bynum then probably D-League player for now.
Looks like they could use some fabric softener on Bango's mascot costume.
Notre Dame: Basketball school
Wizards are releasing Toure’ Murry and plan to sign another player with Beal out, according to source. Murry sprained his ankle Monday.
I think we're almost done with the Grant's. Who's the next, next generation of hoop siblings to proliferate college hoops?
Pacers went on a 10-0 run but Bucks have responded with 2 baskets from Henson and a 3-pointer by Bayless. Bucks 41, Pacers 23.
The quickness of ND on the perimeter becoming an issue for Wichita.
Early 2nd. Bucks. 34 Indiana 18.
It's all happening http://t.co/r5cEqpXWxL
If you are in Houston right now, walk outside. It's an insanely beautiful evening.
Jared Dudley (back) said he hasn't been given any restriction on minutes for tonight's game. Says he's still not 100 percent, though.
End of one: Bucks 34, Pacers 15. Ilyasova has 17 points, career best for a quarter, on 7-of-8 shooting (3 of 4 triples). Bucks 14 of 19 FGs.
Ersan Ilyasova outscored the Indiana Pacers 17-15 in the first quarter. Bucks up by 19.
Bucks have 10 assists. Pacers 11 pts.
Now I want to text Matt so I can get a Nightmarejao in return
Roy Williams walking around the bowels of Staples Center just feels so weird.
O.J. Mayo’s hair game is pretty close to that of Elfrid Payton.
Sam Dekker's future earnings potential looking to get a nice boost before the night is out
Much more impressive celebs at Carolina-Wisconsin than the Knicks game last night.
You know it's bad when Vogel has had to use as many timeouts this Q (three) as the field goals his team has made (4)
Mayo and Bayless are first Bucks subs.
Bucks up 29-11 on Indiana, 14 points on 6-for-7 FG for Ersanity. You can keep watching NCAA.
Ersan Ilyasova is off to a torrid start with 14 points in the Bucks' 29-11 lead over Indy. And there's still 2:07 left in period.
Pacers have called 3 timeouts in first quarter and Bucks lead 29-11. Ilyasova with 14 and Middleton 8.
Ersan Ilyasova 14, Pacers 11
So much for taking momentum from last night's win in DC.
Ersan 14, Pacers 11.
Ersan with an 11-point first quarter for the second straight game...oh, nevermind, make it 14...
Ersan has scored 12 straight points for Bucks.
Fun fact. Roy Hibbert isn’t a fan of playing against Zaza Pachulia.
Lowkey, I bet nuns almost always get their way when they ask for stuff. Imma become one.
It's early, but things are happening out in Los Angeles
This nun asked me if Id switch seats w her on my flight, so she could sit w the other nuns. And I said "Yea!" Bc God might hurt me if say no
Ilyasova drains a corner 3 on good pass from Giannis. Bucks 20, Pacers 9.
Dudley riding bike in back of Bucks bench to stay loose before entering game. Miles has returned to game.
Pacers have allowed 112.7 per 100 in last five games, 27th in NBA.
The Pacers couldn't have forgotten how to play defense, but it sure looks like it the past few games, and on that MCW drive in transition.
C.J. Miles checks back into the game.
Bucks on pace to win 120-12
Pacers had four straight TOs to start game.
Bucks off to quick start with 10-1 lead and Indiana calls a timeout. Pacers 0 for 5 while Bucks are 5 for 7. Pachulia with 4 pts.
Sam Dekker doing a great Mirotic impression.
Sam Dekker making some $$$$ tonight.
Asked my daughter which team she was rooting for and she picked Carolina based on their "beautiful blue shirts."
More Kornheiser: "They have laid down like dogs. They are the Titanic. They are going down under the weight of expectations."
Kornheiser talking Wittman on PTI: "In his defense, they stink. This team has been trying to fire him for a month now."
Pacers C.J. Miles went to locker room in opening minutes. Not sure what his injury is.
C.J. Miles literally skips off the court and heads back to the locker room. Damjan Rudež in the game now
Luis Scola in Pacers starting lineup with David West out.
The IMG coaches say Lucas has been everything advertised as a player and is a far better NBA prospect than they expected.
Whether or not this roster mangement yields anything will be determined over time but know Jazz front office is maximizing chances
Brazilian point guard George Lucas has started his pre-draft training at IMG Academy and may have the largest hands ever measured there
Mudiay has been working on his jump shot and his conditioning and plans to take on all comers. Interesting to see how teams respond to him.
So Emmanuel Mudiay has been stateside working out for the draft for several weeks and is ready to make a case that he should be the top pick
Jazz have signed Chris Johnson to a multi year deal. This is the exact roster mangement I was speaking of in previous tweets
With Booker, Millsap, Cotton, Cooley & Johnson (assuming at min.), Utah will have ~$7.8 million to trade in nonguaranteed money at draft.
Definitely need more close up shots of college coaches coaching
Johnson impressed the jazz when he was here. Was let go in part because jazz needed roster spot for enes kanter trade
Jazz have signed F Chris Johnson to multi-year contract. Re-joins team after 10-day (1/28-2/6). Played 2 gm: 7.0 pt/1.5 reb/1.5 ast/1.5 stl
And now the jazz have signed Chris Johnson for the remainder of the season. Played well for Utah on 10 day in January
The Jazz have waived Ian Clark and signed Chris Johnson to a multi-year deal.
Eric Musselman says "We have what it takes to win here. All we need is two buckets, and 94 feet, and we're ready to rock and roll."
The Jazz have waived G Ian Clark. Clark appeared in 23 gms as a reserve, averaging 1.9 pts in 7.0 mins.
Did David West have an allergic reaction to soccer?
Bucks 11-4 at home since Jan. 24; 3-11 on road during same span. Milwaukee 20-14 at home overall.
Again didn't yeild much on floor but Jazz used non-guarnteed contracts to get 2nd round 2015 pick and Carrick Felix.
Was walking down street and overheard someone say Bartolo Colon was the Mets' opening day starter. That's all you need to know about Mets.
The Steve Novak deal didn't yeild much for the Jazz but the Jazz used non-guarnteed contracts to acquire Novak and Knicks 2nd in 17
Still getting replies for the D West-Messi tweet. Calm down, soccer aficionados. It's OK for one person not to like ur sport. Really, it is.
Amongst a crew of Lakers players and staffers at the Maple Leafs game in Toronto on an off night: http://t.co/kuQ5HSMBnj
Now, does Chris Johnson get the multi-year deal? Does he get more than the minimum so that Utah can use him as trade ballast? It's possible.
Good news: Ian Clark played 13 minutes last night, his most since January! Bad news: Ian Clark was waived today.
Waiving Clark makes a lot of roster mangement sense. Better to have non-guarnteed contract on books than expiring. More flexibility
