    1:00 pm – I’ll be taking my son to Boy Scouts tonight so we’ll see how the WordPress app works with updating. Pac Attack wins the pool if the Zags win, MizzouTgr11 2 wins if the Bears win (see Final Possibilities). Total points in Final tiebreaker will come into play (note over/under is now 159, down a point) if Gonzaga wins with Hawkeye 3 getting 5th if total pts <=147 and Gonzagafinallywinsit gets 5th if total pts >=148. If Baylor wins, with The Fabone Marathon wins 4th if <=144 and Mr Wizard wins 4th if >=145.

    If Baylor wins, 7th is a 3-way tie meaning at least one will go home empty handed.

    • Carseroni wins 7th if <=120,
    • Carseroni and Mrs Meghan&Mr Meghan split $60 if 121,
    • Mrs Meghan&Mr Meghan wins 7th if pts are 122 to 140,
    • Mrs Meghan&Mr Meghan and Wuk#3 split $60 if 141, and
    • Wuk#3 wins 7th if >=142.

    For the $40 Bonus, 51 are tied if Gonzaga wins and 49 are tied if Baylor wins. If total points is <=103, then Thai Spice wins and if total points is >=169 then Bigtenfan wins. The rest are in the middle (see Bonus possibilities).

    3:50 pm – Ok, done with short trip to El Segundo. Now dealing with an hour of traffic. Oh, UNC has a coach now.

    15:30 – 11-1 Baylor. In the car on way to Cypress Boys & Gils Club.

    11:42 – 23-8 Baylor. Zags in trouble.

    10:00 – 29-10. (Projected total – 156)

    7:50 – 31-14. Baylor has twice as many shot attempts (24-12).

    Half – Zags score last 5 to cut deficit to 10 (47-37). Projected total points 168 (Bonus projected for Mauihammy&Jay Bilas regardless who wins). Down by as many as 19, Zags still shot 54.5% (12/22). 8 turnovers and allowing 9 offensive rebounds allowed Baylor to shoot 16 more times (19/38). After missing first free throw, Zags made last 12. Baylor just 2 free throws (2/2).

    15:51 – 56-45. Driving home now.

    11:45 – 67-53. Zags had it down to 9 but Baylor’s 3s are killing them. Projected 168.

    10:20: 20 pts! 73-53

    8:27 – 2 missed free throws. Nothing going right. 75-59. Still 168 projected.

    5:00 – Baylor 80-63, projected 163. Zags missed 4 of last 5 free throws including front end of a 1-and-1. Two more points will give Mr Wizard 4th. Wuk#3 already clinched 7th. 163 would give Dr Fun Bonus (missing out on 4th since Zags will lose).

    3:15 – Baylor 82-65, projected 160 (would give Bonus to ZarinC).

    End – Baylor ran out the clock and thus, 86-70 win produced 156 points. That gives ATI3.0 the Bonus! Perfect season ruined as Zags 35-game win streak comes to an end. Sheesh, Zags still shot 51% but just 5/17 on threes. Baylor 18 more shots with 16 offensive rebounds and forcing 14 turnovers. Baylor was 10/23 on threes and made 16/18 free throws.
