Daily Picks: 3/7 Afternoon (Elite 8)

You're welcome Beer!  Glad you did this into Final Four this time.  Not sure if you did last year.   Thank you for your hard work like Gezemice mentioned in other thread.

Gezemice, congrats to you for entering Final 4!  Thank you for the comments and yes BIT is still considering winnable!  Good luck to you both!

Good luck everyone!

Thanks Geo... I knew it was going to be close but I haven't been able to summarize this last set of games yet.  I'll get the final results posted in the morning (along with any Monday games).  Side note: Kansas looked great... #1 Overall Seed!

Congratulations Beer.. You ADVANCED into Final 4!   I tried to figure out the possiblities of three remaining games after Oral Roberts defeated North Dakota State 65-64 overtime and I couldn't catch up to get the lead.  I am going down to BIT!   Good luck whose survive into Final Four.

Beer, I noticed that the Boston College - NC State game wasn't counted for me and Kentucky0607.  I copied mine from his since he told me they were up and didn't cross-check with his... we both spelled it NC State instead of North Carolina State.  Can you please correct that?  Sorry for the problem.

I've been at work all day so I guess I just lost my matchup with Hoosier.   I kept looking and looking and then had to go..  It's kind of disappointing making it to the elite eight and then probably going down before the final four.

Fostsogg - Sorry I couldn't get the games posted sooner.  I know it was only 2.5 hours before tip off.  I made a quick comment last night and was hoping that someone else would post the games.  Please keep posting your games... I'll try to come up with a way to keep it interesting since you missed these games and Lobofan missed the past few.
