LAMM AT LARGE: The Blue Bloods Come Through Yet Again

todayMarch 30, 2022

A big thank you to St. Peter’s. A tip of the hat to Miami and to those other double- digit-seeded teams that pulled off so-called upsets during the first two weekends of the NCAA National Basketball Championship.
And to the many underdogs who played basketball giants down to the final buzzer.
Truth is there’s more parity than ever in college basketball. How’d this happen? I think the simplest answer is the transfer portal. Many high-recruited players don’t work out at their original schools for a variety of reasons. They wind up at various middle-of-the-road programs and blossom into stars.
The powerhouses are still powerhouses. We have an impressive Final Four of blue bloods in top-seeded Kansas, second-seeded Duke and Villanova and North Carolina, given a rare 8 seed.
But to get here we had two great weekends of basketball. Would it have been any different if the seeds had been drawn out of a hat?
