Star NCAA Tournament Player Killed in Car Accident

(March 25, 2021 - 11:56 pm) - Oscar Frayer, a standout player for Grand Canyon, was killed in a car accident in northern California early Tuesday morning.  The school confirmed the news Wednesday.  He was 23.

Frayer's older sister, Andrea Moore, and a third person in their vehicle were also killed in the crash, the school confirmed.

Frayer, a 6-foot-6 senior guard/forward, started in Grand Canyon's 86-74 loss to Iowa in the first round of the NCAA tournament last week. He finished the game with eight points, five assists, three blocks and a steal.

It was his 107th start for the Antelopes.

"On the court, Oscar was known as the 'High Flyer' and will be remembered for his soaring dunks, tenacious defense and game-changing blocked shots," the school said in a statement on Thursday. "Off the court, he will be remembered for his infectious smile, energetic spirit and caring soul that made him one of the most well-liked students on campus."

VCU Out of Tournament Due to Covid, Ducks Advance Uncontested

(March 19, 2021 - 7 pm) - Oregon is through to the Round of 32 on Monday uncontested as the game between the Ducks and VCU has been cancelled.  The Rams will be unable to play due to multiple Covid-19 positives on the team.

The NCAA announced Saturday’s game between No. 7 seed Oregon and No. 10 seed VCU was declared a no-contest.

“The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has declared the VCU-Oregon game scheduled for Saturday night at Indiana Farmers Coliseum a no-contest because of COVID-19 protocols,” the NCAA announced. “This decision was made in consultation with the Marion County Public Health Department. As a result, Oregon will advance to the next round of the tournament. The NCAA and the committee regret that VCU’s student-athletes and coaching staff will not be able to play in a tournament in which they earned the right to participate. Because of privacy issues we cannot provide further details.”

Loyola-Chicago Another Big Win for the Gamblers

(March 19, 2021 - 6 pm) - In a battle of two of the most aggressive defenses in the country, the Loyola Ramblers came out on top with a 71-60 victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.  The win means that Loyola will get to face off with the top-seeded Illinois Fighting Illini on Sunday.

The line on this game should be Illinois -8.5.

Oral Roberts Stuns Ohio State - First Big Cinderella of Tournament

(March 19, 2021 - 5:25 pm) - Oral Roberts promised a $25,000 payout for every $100 bet to win the 2021 NCAA Tournament and they just got one step closer.

Oral Roberts upset Ohio State in overtime in the first round of the men's NCAA tournament Friday, the first major upset of March Madness.   Ohio State fell 75-72.

Ohio State entered the tournament as the No. 2 seed in the East Region.

Oral Roberts is the first No. 15 seed since 2016 to win a tournament game.

The Golden Eagles advance to the next round and play Florida on Sunday.

Virginia Cavaliers finally arrive in Indianapolis for NCAA tournament

(March 19, 2021 - 4:54 pm) - Virginia is the 68th and final team to arrive in Indianapolis for the NCAA Tournament.

The Cavaliers remained in Charlottesville after a positive COVID-19 test caused them to pull out of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament before a semifinal game against Georgia Tech on March 11.

The Cavaliers have been testing daily since they paused team activities; their plan Friday was to practice at home in the morning for the first time and then travel to the site of this year's tournament. Their arrival puts them two sets of negative tests away from facing Ohio on Saturday night.

Virginia is technically still the reigning national champion with last year's tournament cancelled.

They pay out $5000 on a $100 bet to win the 2021 NCAA Tournament and are a -7 favorite against the Ohio Bobcats, who were seeing some of the most lopsided action of the tournament.  This line came down off the -8.5.
