tournament madness

Both the CAA and America East tournaments begin today. Georgia Southern showed that some of its late season wins were not a fluke in their opening round win against Delaware. I will be at courtside in Richmond tomorrow and on Sunday watching the quarterfinals and semi finals of the CAA. My university, Northeastern, is a three seed, but needs to play better than it had in February to do well. The likely opponent tomorrow will be Drexel a team that has played Northeastern well in the regular season games. My alma mater Albany will have a tough road in the America East if it wants to return to the big dance. It is a 7 seed, but the tournament is at Albany and that ought to provide an advantage.

Howard Schwartz of the gamblers book shop had some kind words about The Madness of March: Bonding and Betting with the Boys in his most recent podcast. Also, some favorable words for the book were written in Booklist, a publication for the American Library Association.
