March Madness Gets Exciting As Wisconsin Upsets Number 1 Villanova

March Madness just got crazier. On [Saturday] number 8 Wisconsin eliminated number 1 Villanova from the [NCAA Tournament].  The former Champs [1 Villanova] played poorly.  Once again they were slow in the first half, giving up a [9-0] run for 8 Wisconsin.

Nova had the same problems that they had against 16 Mount St. Mary’s.  They were missing Field Goals and were missing from outside the arc.  Every time they went on a run they let 8 Wisconsin come back.  They finally tied it in the second half.  The game was close from then on and it came down to one possession.  Yet the real travesty was that they weren’t playing Nova style Basketball.  8 Wisconsin controlled the pace of the game, all game.  Add to that the weak rebounding that they had; it looked like a different Nova Team than we have seen.  Point of fact this was a different Nova Team from last year.

The Nova loss was a real Bracket Buster.  I had them going all the way and I’m sure that I wasn’t the only one.  There was another major upset on [Saturday].  11 Xavier upset 3 Florida St. University to move on to the Round of 16 [Sweet 16].  This was another Bracket Buster.  11 Xavier looks good, they are a real Cinderella Team.  11 Xavier will face 2 Arizona, who struggled earlier against 7 Saint Mary’s.

So far here are the match ups for the Sweet 16.  8 Wisconsin will face 4 Florida in the Sweet 16.  1 Gonzaga will play against 4 West Virginia, after a heart breaking game against 8 Northwestern.  4 Purdue moves on to the Sweet 16 along with 4 Butler.  The Round of 32 continues today [Sunday] on CBS.  Where placement in the Sweet 16 concludes.

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.
