Sweet Sixteen Is Set, Goorj Gooone

Goorj has officially left the Kingdome!

The first weekend of the NCAA is history, so now we are down to 16 teams to fight it out for the championship.

In the West Region (Friday our time) we will see West Virgina take on Xavier, while the second game will feature Western Kentucky and UCLA.

The East Region is where you will find the Great Aussie Hope, Aron Baynes. His Washington State Cougars take on North Carolina, while Louisville and Tennessee square off. This is also Friday our time.

On Saturday in the Midwest Region, Davidson and Wisconsin clash, while Villanova and Kansas battle to see who makes it to the Final Eight.

In the South Region, Stanford and Texas square off, while Michigan St and Memphis will play each other to be the last game of this round.

Later on in the week I will give a better breakdown of each game.

Until then, you can catch Aussie Aleks Maric and his Nebraska Cornhuskers try and win the National Invitational Tournament. Maric plays tomorrow and takes on Mississippi.

Big Aleks has had a great season and I'm actually looking forward to see how he matches up against the Aussie bigs at a Boomers camp. He may become a sleeper for Beijing if his court speed is satisfactory.

In other news. Well the worst kept secret in basketball has finally hit the papers. Goorj quits the Kings! How long now until he signs with the Dragons?
