So it's official: I royally jinxed the teams with Canadian players. Texas, Syracuse and Gonzaga all lost this weekend, Texas and Syracuse losing in close games, both coming down to the final seconds. The good news is that besides Richmond winning, I failed to notice that there is also a Canadian on Marquette (who beat Syracause), named Junior Cadougan. Of course now that I've mentioned him, I guess I've basically given his team a death sentence!
P.S. Virginia Commonwealth is this year's cinderella. They just destroyed #4 seed Purdue, and will go on to face fellow underdog #10 Florida State in the Sweet 16. Richmond will take on #1 Kansas, while Marquette gets #2 seed North Carolina.
