March Madness Talk: Michigan Fails to Upset Oregon As Ducks Move Onto Elite 8

Oregon Able To Hold Off Michigan

Thursday, number 7 seed Michigan played number 3 seed Oregon in the Sweet 16 of the [NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament].  It was a back and forth game with several lead changes.  It was a game that Michigan could win.  Yet Michigan turned the ball over 5 times in the first half.  Something that they are not accustomed to.  They had very good shooting from beyond the arc.  Which was something that kept them in the game.  Overall I’d say their play style was top-notch.  Listen it was a close game and it was the kind of game that we have seen from the Wolverines.  It was the same play style that helped them eliminate a very good 2 Louisville Team.  It was how they got this far.

7 Michigan got into foul trouble late in the game yet with 2 minutes to go they were still in it.  The Ducks still had 2 Team fouls to give.  The game came down to last possession.  Down by 1 point with 10 something seconds on the clock, the Wolverines took their best shot and missed.  Losing to 3 Oregon [69-68].  It was a heart breaker, as any Michigan fan could tell you.  I was on the edge of my seat for most of the game and I expected the same heroics from the last game that they played.

Although this ended one Cinderella Team’s chances, another Cinderella Team rose to the challenge last night.  11 Xavier beat 2 Arizona [73-71] to move on to the Round of 8 [Great Eight].  They will be playing 1 Gonzaga who beat 4 West Virginia last night.  1 Kansas blew out 4 Purdue [98-66] and will play 3 Oregon.  The remaining Sweet 16 looks like this:

  • 8 Wisconsin vs 4 Florida in the East Region
  • 3 Baylor vs 7 South Carolina in the East Region
  • 1 UNC vs 4 Butler in the South Region
  • 3 UCLA vs 2 Kentucky in the South Region

The Round of 16 concludes tonight [Friday] on CBS.  The games start at 7 pm and 9 pm [CBS, TBS].

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
