NCAA Pool Update

KANSAS CITY, MO - MARCH 19:  Robert Dozier #2 of the Memphis Tigers vies for a loose ball with Willie Galick #14 and Tremaine Townsend #33 of the CSUN Matadors in the first half during the first round of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament at the Sprint Center on March 19, 2009 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Buckeye CommentarySenior Analyst IMarch 23, 2009
As we head to the second weekend we still have a very competitive field in the Buckeye Commentary NCAA Pool.
Perhaps, more telling is that the Possible Points Remaining leaves the field wide open.
Despite all that competition, yours truly is no where near the top of the leaderboard. My dark horse pick of Wake Forest quickly imploded due to the tenacious play of Cleveland State.

Right now, The Most Brian holds a lead but four entries are only 10 points behind and a ten within 20 points of the lead. Much like the real tournament, the chalk has prevailed in the pool as every entry still has their champion alive with the exception of my above mentioned gaffe and eternal optimist OSU Bucks Fan's choice.

We might not get a lot of separation on Thursday and Friday, but the weekend is certain to make it or break it for many teams.
