I was so impressed with Virginia and its defense holding North Carolina to 49 points. The Cavaliers make the extra pass to get good shots. Tony Bennett has a legit Final Four contender.

Tough weekend for blue bloods Duke, Kentucky and Not Carolina. The Blue Devil loss was stunning as NC State had been blown out by Notre Dame earlier in the week.

West Virginia got a big win over Oklahoma.

College basketball has parity. It is in for a wild ride at times.

I am excited to be going to Madison Square Garden for the Jimmy V Classic this week. It is always special and we raise awareness in the battle against cancer.

I will be calling the renewal of former Big East rivals Syracuse and Connecticut. The other game features Villanova against Gonzaga. The Garden should be rocking and rolling and it will be an emotional night.

I am sure Jimmy V will be looking down from heaven. His legacy lives on through the V Foundation as wwe must be this dreaded disease. I'm excited to watch two coaches that have cut down the nets, Jim Boeheim and Kevin Ollie, do battle. Tysu Battle, Oshae Brisett, Jalen Adams, there will be plenty of young talent on display on a special evening,
