Looking at the final scores of the NCAA Men's Sweet 16 games last night I'm reminded of being a kid watching Sesame Street and the "One of these things is not like the others" segment.

Clemson 77 - Arizona 72 (5 point margin of victory)
Illinois 72 - Iowa State 69 (3 point margin of victory)
Alabama 89 - North Carolina 87 (2 point margin of victory)
UConn 82 - San Diego State 52 (30 point margin of victory)

Are you going to watch UCONN vs Illinois on and off at home and the bar tomorrow?

Loyal that's a nice photo of Harvard basketball court. So what about the barber? How did this figure in?

I guess the barber travels with the team..........and gives them all a haircut when they need one.
These guys need to be well groomed!
He might have given my nephew a haircut when he saw him. I guess this was his first time to Boston so my nephew invited him and a few others to visit him at Harvard.

I wonder if the San Diego State, Iowa State, and Illinois fans got to chance to go sightseeing in Boston.

Tickets for that UCONN Saturday's game are $250/$300 the cheapest at the Garden.
The NCAA West Regional Elite 8 game in LA featuring Clemson and Alabama have dropped remarkably in price since the top 2 fan base with Arizona closer to LA and North Carolina (there were a lot of fans for NC) are eliminated. UNC former great James Worthy was there Thursday night's loss.

Tickets in the East Regional is like 600 dollars for the 300 level at the Boston Garden center court middle view for 1 ticket.
In contrast $38 for the same 300 level middle court view for the LA Regionals. I wonder what the Final Four seats would cost.

I spent $300 ($216 +83 stubhub fees) for my NCAA West Regional in downtown LA last Thursday. Watched my Alma Mater played at 4pm PDT. I couldn't make the second game which was a great game (Alabama over UNC) because I had to take the train back home to my mother, who wakes up around 9pm for dinner. My seats were in the upper 300 level with middle court view. My school lost, but that's good. More time with my mother.

Is the entire Northeast all UCONN fans? I never saw such a demand.
