North Carolina got knocked out of the 2007 NCAA basketball tournament by Georgetown today. The Hoyas played well, so I don’t begrudge them the win.
My usual litmus test for a good tournament is “Did one of my teams make it to the Final Four?” Kentucky got knocked out in the second round, but Kansas had a good team this year. And UNC almost made it to the Final Four but came up short in overtime today. Normally those two losses would count as a bad year in my book.
But Duke lost in the first round. To Virginia Commonwealth. And that tips it over to a good year for me.
