And, Now We Only Have To See Him In Commercials

What a way to start the day! West Viriginia comes tearing back in the second half and eases itself into the dominant role in the game, holding a flailing Duke off down the stretch. Oh, I love the fact that I don't have to come home and know that the Duke game will be on no matter much better the other matchups are. What a great way to start the day!

After a slow start, Joe Alexander was indeed the best player in this game and his team did grab boards and hit big threes in the second half. Alexander led the game in points (22) and rebound (11). And, while this wasn't as exciting a win as VCU triumph last year it is still pretty damn awesome, provided you have an irrational dislike for Coach K's teams and a completely justified dislike of Greg Paulus.

And, all aspiring Cinderllas should take note. If you take the floor against the Blue Devils and you're wearing blue and gold. You will win. So, to all you Athletic Directors (who are obviously reading this) out there, you better get to work on some rationale for changing your school's color scheme.

Not to mention Cal beating Duke in the second round in 1993, which was a massive upset.
