2013 NCAA Tournament Video: Top 5 Takeaways From Friday Night
Marshall Henderson Steals the Show- Marshall Henderson scored 19 points, but needed 21 shots to do so. Henderson was up to his usual antics on Friday afternoon, but long story short, the Ole Miss Rebels are into the Round of 32 for the first time since 2001. What will Henderson do next?
Roy Williams vs. Kansas- The rematch is back on following Friday night victories for both North Carolina and Kansas. A season ago, Roy Williams, who formerly coached at Kansas, was upended by the Jayhawks in the Elite 8 round as a No. 1 seed. Now, the Tar Heels look to return the favor against a Jayhawk squad that is positioned as a 1 seed here in 2013.
LaSalle Continues A-10 Perfection- The Explorers blew an 18-point halftime lead against No. 4 Kansas State, but LaSalle held on for the victory. The Atlantic 10 Conference enter the Round of 32 with an unblemished mark of 6-0, but can these league members keep the dream going over the weekend?
Ben Howland Done at UCLA- The Bruins were virtually beat up in their Round of 64 match-up with No. 11 Minnesota. Technically it constitutes as an upset, but UCLA showed no fight and no passion to even want to win. Cue the Ben Howland talk because we may have seen the head Bruin coach his final game at UCLA.
Florida Gulf Coast Shocks the World- The No. 15 Eagles did it. They knocked off Georgetown and advanced to the Round of 32, becoming the seventh team all-time to do so. Florida Gulf Coast however, didn’t just upset the Hoyas, they pummeled them, leading by 19 at one point. What does Andy Enfield and the Eagles have up their sleeve for this weekend? We will surely find out.
