Final Four Results and Final Standings of A Thinking Man's Tourney

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Wow! Last night's overtime win by Kansas over Memphis was a pretty good game. For some reason, I found myself rooting for Memphis, even though I did not really care who won. I had the privilege of joining with some folks from church as we watched the game projected onto a screen in Steven Fleming's pad. It was pretty cool.

I know it is easy to second-guess a coach after the fact, but Steven can attest to the fact that this is not just second-guessing. I think Memphis should have fouled Kansas on the last play before Chalmers took the three-pointer. With only 10 seconds left, the only way Kansas wins that game is by doing exactly what happened. (Of course, I guess they could have made one free throw and then missed the second one on purpose and gotten the rebound and made a shot to tie - but that is more difficult than making a three-pointer.)

Since Kansas won the game and no one in the Thinking Man's Tourney picked Kansas, the standings remain the same as they were in the previous post. So, for the second year in a row - Congratulations to Sam Knisely for winning The Thinking Man's Tourney.

Just my thoughts,
