    The Sport of BasketballThis NCAA tournament this year has provided very few surprises compared to the 2006 tournament. This is the first year that all my final four picks have made it to the Final Four. This skewers the experts, because all of the grandmas out there have the number one seeds in the Final Four.

    The Sport of BasketballOver the years, the NCAA has added more games to the college basketball season back from 24, then 26, then 28. In addition, the PAC-10 brought back the conference tournament. The possibility now exists that a team is going to play 32-34 games. A team with twenty wins is no longer a lock for the NCAA tournament. UCLA has won 31 games, a school record for the pre-NCAA tournament. They won both the regular season and tournament.

    The Sport of BasketballTwo teams from last year are back: UCLA and Florida; and they will face each other in the second game of the evening on the Saturday semi-finals. Ohio State and Georgetown are in the other two semi-final slots. There are no surprises in this final four. Ohio State and Florida are #1 seeds. Florida is the defending national champion; Ohio State is the #1 ranked team. Georgetown and UCLA were both picked by a number of prognosticators to be in the final four as well. UCLA spent some time ranked #1, along with Florida this year. These teams all hovered in the top 10 during the season.

    The Sport of BasketballThe UCLA/Gonzaga NCAA game on Thursday March 23rd, 2006 was one for the ages. It had several things that made it one of the most memorable games of the 2006 NCAA Mens Basketball tournament, not the least of which was Gus Johnsons call of the last minute of the game on CBS. Number two seed UCLA Bruins were facing the Number 3 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs at the Western regional semi-final game at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California.

    The Sport of BasketballWell, some of the NCAA tournament fun is over for the HDTV crowd. On one hand, all CBS NCAA Tournament games will be in High Definition. On the other hand there will no longer be separate games delivered to the local affiliates for HD and regular TV broadcast as there had been for 2005 and 2006.

    The Sport of BasketballRepeating from last year, the UCLA Bruins again win the Pacific 10 conference men's basketball regular season with a 15-3 record. They go undefeated at home for the first time since 1975. However, right after beating Washington State in Pullman, the Bruins skidded hard at Washington and in the Pac 10 tournament.
    Florida defeats UCLA to win 2006 NCAA basketball championship

    The Sport of BasketballThe Florida Gators handily defeated 11 time National champion UCLA to win their first basketball title in school history. Joakim Noah and his shot blocking set a championship game record. Florida played spectacularly, maintaining a solid defense on the Bruins who previously set the benchmark. The offense for Florida offset the defense of UCLA. With the solid inside play of Noah, there was no way the Bruins could get any layups or second shots. He deserves the credit, and was rightfully named the player of the tournament.

    The Sport of BasketballUCLA put away LSU. Most of the fans left the arena, leaving only the UCLA fans and the LSU band. Typically it is the UCLA fans who leave early when the game is no longer in doubt. Florida stifled Cinderella George Mason, setting up the Bruins vs the Gators in the championship game on Monday night.

    The Sport of BasketballAll the number one seeds dropped out, including the two from the prestigious Big East conference. In LSU, UCLA, Florida and George Mason, we have a four, two, three, and eleven seed respectively. UCLA has 11 National Championships under its belt, but none in this decade. None of the other schools has won an NCAA basketball championship. In the previous look at the CBS high definition coverage, I mentioned that defense will be the key to this year’s championship. There is no doubt now in my mind that stifling defense will be the order of the day. It may not make for exciting basketball, but in the end a team will still be a champion.

    The local CBS affiliate carried eight of the sixteen games first round Thursday games. They carried separate games between their regular NTSC VHF band and the HDTV band. The broadcast games were still determined by their relevance to the region. Also, the determination of HD or analog depended upon whether the site broadcast team was equipped. But this year, CBS also offers the MMOD streaming downloads for March Madness on demand FREE! They are showing commercials to pay for the streaming.

    For the first time since 1997, the UCLA Bruin men’s basketball team at the top of the regular season standings with a record of 14-4 in the conference. The Pac-10 is one of the few major conferences left that still play home and home round robin games. UCLA has lost to Washington twice, and Cal and USC once. Last year’s champion, Washington, is in second place with a 13-5 record. The last time UCLA won the conference with a 14-4 record was the 1986-1987 season in which Washington was also the previous conference champion, and had defeated UCLA twice in the regular season. UCLA went on to beat the Huskies in the championship of the inaugural Pac-10 basketball tournament held at Pauley Pavilion.

    2005 NCAA Basketball broadcasts in HDTV

    The Sport of BasketballThis is very cool for NCAA basketball fanatics. The local CBS affiliate is carrying two separate feeds of the NCAA men�s basketball championship during the first and second rounds when multiple games are played. On the regular VHF analog broadcast, they are showing the normal regional games they would have been assigned. In our region, preference is given to games involving Big Ten or Midwestern schools whenever possible. On their HDTV band, they are showing a second different game, in HDTV when possible.

    On Thursday March 17th, the Tucson regional games were broadcast in High Definition Television. I was able to catch the UCLA/Texas Tech game in HDTV instead of the Illinois/Fairleigh Dickinson game. That game and others from Indianapolis were broadcast in normal analog.
