Matt Park on the Orange Radio broadcast wanted to give co-MVP awards - one to Scoop, the other to K-State's Thomas Gipson, who was 2-of-9 from the field.

Watching from Seattle...Christmas and Southerland were huge in the second half, shutting down KState's insede game and rebounding dominance. SU looked like a #1 seed in the second half!

Go up and down the lineup, there were a lot of Syracuse players that made significant contributions today

but k state was without their best rebounder, and their best scorer was hurt most of the game.

Charles Barkley: "Syracuse is one of the few teams that gets better when they go the bench. I still believe they're going to miss Fab Melo somewhere"

Don't need Fab. Christmas did a very good job. About time we played great. KS was terrible and would have been below 500 in the Big East
Saturday March 17, 2012 2:37 Guest

Christmas had 11 rebounds, 8 points and 3 blocks today. Southerland added 6 rebounds, Jardine 5

Barkley is a terrible excuse for an expert. If you listen to him he does not know what he is talking about

Boeheim on CBS: "Rakeem did a great job. Both Baye and Rock did a great job inside. I said from the beginning of the tournament, we[re going where our seniors take us. Scoop and Kris stepped up big."

Barkley: "I actually like them to win one more game. When you get down to nitty-gritty, that's when they'll miss him (Fab Melo)."

Who would all of you out there rather face in the next round, Wisconsin or Vanderbilt?

Because of Vanderbilt's 3-point skills (and all the confidence it has after beating Kentucky in the SEC Tournament), I think the Orange would prefer Wisconsin. Of course, be careful what you wish for.

I think Rak played a great game...esp in the 2nd half...missed a few put backs...but I hope he gets more confidence from this win and his game today. Go Cuse!!!

Barkley is picking Gonzaga to beat Ohio State.

So, that probably means Ohio State is a lock.

My brother and sister-in-law are former Kansas season-ticket holders and love the Jayhawks; they're happy happy happy - Mizzou and K-State are out; Duke is out, too.
