2016 March Madness: #6 Seton Hall vs #11 Gonzaga

kyle wiltjer gonzaga bulldogs 2016 ncaa tournament seton hall piratesWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat ‘Rhonda the intern’ in your office pool this year.

The Big East conference tournament was fun to watch this year. Seton Hall just lined them up and kept winning. The Pirates would have been a fun sleeper pick in the NCAA Tournament if they didn’t end up winning the conference tournament.

The West Coast Conference was weak this year. We are used to them getting at least one at-large bid during the peak years of the Gonzaga/St. Mary’s rivalry. St. Mary’s was on the bubble, but didn’t get in, so Gonzaga is the lone representative from the WCC this year.

Oklahoma State was supposed to be a title contender. Marcus Smart would have been a top three pick in last year’s NBA Draft, but he decided that he needed to work on his shot, so he returned to school. Things haven’t worked out as planned and at one point, looked like they may not even make the NCAA Tournament.

March Madness: All-White Boy Team

Marshall+Henderson+White+BoyWe love the NCAA Tournament. We actually launched our site five years ago, right after Kentucky lost in the first round.

The name “America’s White Boy” comes from a term I coined for the white basketball players CBS focuses on during the tournament.

I don’t believe this yearly ritual is intentionally racist. Think of the movies “Hoosiers” or “Rudy”. These players aren’t the most athletic guys and CBS uses them to tell the story of the underdog.

The “Cinderella” aspect of the NCAA Tournament is what brings in the casual sports fan.

Here is our list of the best white basketball players in this year’s tournament. I’m sure CBS will use this as a cheat sheet for their coverage.  Continue reading
