You lost me at "I went to the Maui Invitational on my honeymoon.''

Less than a month after Kentucky-Duke, allegedly the game of the year, we have Game of the Year Part II - Gonzaga-Duke in the final. Here's hoping the sequel is more entertaining than the original.

We got some serious posting going on here. Justin Coleman after his 3. Zach Norvell after his. Tis on here in Maui.

Relegated to Mr. October 3rd after that debacle.

Short of losing his gym shorts, not sure how that could have gone worse for Chase Jeter. Turnover on entry pass, called for foul, called for technical, fouls out, Gonzaga takes lead.

He's on to something. Post-game media luau.

This is not the same Gonzaga team as the first half. Sleepwalkers replaced with high energy defenders who are pushing tempo. No turnovers this half. From down eight to down one.

It is so stinking loud in here. Reaffirming my love for old-school gyms over antiseptic luxury box, chardonnay-drinking stuffy nouveau arenas. Kinda like a bar versus a club. Gimme the bar.

Dammit. The refs got to keep their whistles for the second half.

Arizona didn't hit a field goal in nearly six minutes and still leads by 8. Gonzaga's whistled for 16 fouls, coughs up 10 turnovers. Not a thing of beauty for the Zags.

It's also never going to happen. I'm safe. So is my rum.

I'd give up my last mai tai to have one possession without a whistle.

Hachimura coming back in. Few has no choice. Gonzaga looks rattled. Looked rattled against Illinois, too. Odd for a veteran team

Arizona playing with a lot of swagger right now, taking advantage of two fouls on Hachimura. Another tough game here in Maui.

With the talented freshmen, Mike Krzyzewski told his team he was going to "elevate the role of the role player.'' One of them - Marques Bolden - had a star turn against Auburn but his willingness to find his spot is why this Duke team is so good.

Duke moves on to final behind Bolden's 11 points, 9 boards and 7 blocks but Auburn is more than worthy of its ranking. Tigers kept coming and made Blue Devils work for this one.

Some serious hustle out of Bolden. Blocks shot, hustles down to catch alley oop for dunk, blocks another shot. Not just about the freshmen for Duke.

Almost like Duke nods off for a bit, Auburn threatens and the Blue Devils remember how good they are.

Auburn isn't going away as Blue Devils settling for a lot of quick jumpers and getting burned in transition. Down 8.
