Weíre only at the Sweet 16 and my Kansas guys already have me on the edge of my seat! That game against Purdue was intense. They were really handing it to us, but we were able to keep our composure and make a late comeback to pull it out in the end.
Hummel really had it going, but Coach Self made some great adjustments and it paid off. Basketball is all about rhythm and getting it going at the right time, and thatís exactly what KU did. Thatís what youíve got to do during March Madness, its win or go home and watch the rest of the action from your couch.
This yearís tournament has been great with all the upsets and surprises. While itís been exciting to watch, itís also got my bracket a little out of whack. No one could have predicted some of these outcomes, and Iíve got to say, as the competitive guy I am, Iím not too happy about being less than 50 percent with only seven of my picks making the Sweet 16. The great news though is that thereís a lot of unbelievable basketball being played.

Next up for KU will be N.C. State and theyíve been one of the real underdog stories this year. Theyíve got a first-year coach and heís got his team playing good basketball. Make sure you guys tune in and show my Jayhawks some love this Friday night and donít forget to keep checking in to @TheLockerRoom to follow my picks.
Check out my bracket here if you missed it last time. Hereís to hoping Kansas doesnít become N.C. Stateís third straight upset!
