NCAA tournament could have more senior moments than usual

NCAA tournament could have more senior moments than usual

The warmup acts are over, those Tuesday and Wednesday doubleheaders known most recently as the First Four, the play-ins and the despoilers of what once was a perfectly proportioned NCAA tournament bracket.

Now it's on to the main event, 16 games Thursday and the same Friday.

The games will generate plenty of senior moments, which have dwindled in the recent past as the one-and-dones dominated the landscape. They will produce one three-peat after another — perhaps along with royalties for Pat Riley, if the trademarked term is echoed — as teams have fired away from behind the arc at unprecedented rates this season.
