And so, with Tuesday night’s rout of Louisville, the NCAA basketball season comes to a close with the inevitable UConn women’s victory. Congratulations to the Huskies, both for winning the tournament and making this year’s women’s tournament the most boring postseason event ever, at least in terms of its ultimate conclusion.
But really, it’s not like the men’s tournament was much better. the North Carolina men’s championship was certainly not the foregone conclusion the UConn women’s was — and did not come with an undefeated regular season, either — but once their respective tournaments began, both Tarheels and Huskies ripped through their brackets in a fairly similar manner. Look:
Those are some dominant numbers right there. They are also some boring numbers. (To be gracious, I will even point out that Carolina’s smallest margin of victory — against Oklahoma — does not fully show how completely they dominated that game from the opening tip.)
So, congratulations all, but next year could we have just a bit more madness in our March?
If you are a fan of either of these two teams, go ahead and gloat in the comments. We don’t mind.
