Deja vu! I was in LA for work when UCLA received the #4 seed to play Princeton in 1996. The team and coach and fans whined like babies all week. That #13 seeding turned out pretty well for the Tigers!

See you in Tampa!

2:05, but only because I couldn't remember how to spell Connolly under pressure.

Let's also get behind Richmond. Coached by my favorite Princeton player. Huge win over Temple on Saturday for Mooney and the program.

I was sorry neither Richmond nor Georgetown was in Princeton's Tampa pod. That would have been fun.

Perhaps Florida fans going to the evening session who have tickets earlier in the day can root for the Tigers against Kentucky.
