Rave: March Madness begins and the University of Colorado advances in the tournament.
The final minutes of last night’s men’s basketball game between the University of Colorado and UNLV were some of the worst minutes of basketball I have every watched. CU seemed incapable of scoring. UNLV was determined to take shots as far as possible from the hoop. Seeing a Buff at the free throw line made me cringe. And I loved every minute of it.
I even loved that Colorado State University lost earlier in the day to Murray State. Not because I’m a CU-alum, but because that’s what the tournament is all about. CSU got a chance. Murray State did too, and the win helps to put aside rumors that their regular season record of 31-1 is a fluke. The kids got to settle it on the court. Isn’t that nice?
