Wild and rioting.
Man, what a weekend of college basketball, huh?! It had a little bit of everything.

The good -- anything having to do with the Kentucky-Michigan game, the emergence of Julius Randle as a viable number one pick in the NBA Draft, the emergence of Shabazz Napier as a sneaky back end of the lottery guy, the storyline of Kentucky's "one and done" philosophy staying alive in the face of an upperclassman laden gauntlet, Kevin Ollie, Scottie Wilbekin, the Harrison twins, Bill Raftery, Madison Square Garden, a Wisconsin team that is actually fun to watch...

The bad -- the elimination of Archie Miller which means the elimination of Morgan Miller, every excruciating replay review in the last two minutes of a game, Adreian Payne's inexplicably deciding to become the biggest two guard on the planet, Reggie Miller's saying anything...

The ugly -- Tucson after the West Regional finals....

The one thing that all eight schools remaining on Saturday and Sunday had in common is that, by and large, they reside in towns that are built around the college teams in that city -- Gainesville, Dayton, Madison, Tucson, Storrs, East Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Lexington. Usually, the police in the cities that win their games need to be put on high alert.

However, when you enter the tournament as one of the three or four favorites to win the whole thing, perhaps there is some unresolved angst that manifests itself in couch fires and overturned vehicles. Which brings us to Tucson, Arizona, and the University of Arizona.

Following the Wildcats' 64-63 loss to the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday night, apparently, there were riots in the air, a simmering buzz that the city could explode at any second. That's the only explanation for an army of Tucson police officers lined up in riot gear even before the game had ended on Saturday night.
