NCAA Tournament Simulation

Because it played out like countless games we've seen before, get a lead, lose a lead... rally back... the rosters and tendencies seem really spot on. It played out like a lot of games. Whoever tweaked the rosters deserves a beer.
Creighton made some ridiculous shots in the 2nd half, and the Illini missed some wide open 3's that they would normally make. DMW took some uncharacteristic shots that he wouldn't have taken either, unless he was WIDE open.

It was entertaining, but I was getting annoyed the 2nd half.

BRING ON KENUTCKY!!!

Their work setting up the rosters was really amazing. My one gripe- they didn’t capture Ayo’s transition game at all. Every time we get the ball, we look to get it out in transition if at all possible and Ayo is absolutely deadly. I didn’t see any of that in this game. But given the amount of work that went into this and the crippling sports boredom that is otherwise present, no complaints. Well done!

That's an overall coach setting but it really should be set higher. There are a ton of settings sliders for this game for teams and players plus coach tendencies, team playbooks, etc. Getting each team right would be impossible.

Agreed. If they could (1) convert Frazier to a lefty, (2) get Giorgi to clank a couple of 3's, and (3) give us just a hint of a transition game with Ayo & Dre, I'd give the overall tweaks a 100/100!

Not sure where to put this, but in an alternate universe, we are tipping off against ok’ Bill $elf in less than an hour to defend all that is right, and claim our National Championship. Probably.
