08:18 AM ET 03.28 | A fistful of underclassman -- Marcus Morris, Markieff Morris, Thomas Robinson, Josh Selby and Tyshawn Taylor -- have decisions to make about whether to return to Kansas. None of the players gave any hint which way they are leaning on Sunday. Marcus Morris is projected by Draftexpress.com to be picked 19th overall in the coming draft. Markieff, who is projected to be picked 23rd, said "it's a possibility" that the junior twin forwards will make the same decision -- which of course means he thinks it's a possibility they won't. "It's gonna be a tough decision," Markieff said. "I'm not sure about what I'm ready to do yet. I just need to talk to my coaches and figure out where we're gonna go from there. Whatever decision we make is going to be the best decision for us and my family."

KU had the easiest path in theory and they are gone. Sorry but this has been a great dance. Lots of exciting games IYAM. I prefer to see it like this every year.

+1 How many more mid major deserving at large bids were left at home so conferences like the Big East could maintain the perception created by the media.

I love it that Butler and VCU are half the bracket. Obviously, more from their conferences (and others) deserved a chance.

Agree, even with really stupid last shot playing/execution.

The Big East still has a horse in the race. Looks like the conference tourney winners are better than the regular season winners with UK and UConn still in it.

Butler had to win their conference tourney to get in also. They didn't win the regular season.

Yeah but with eleven chances the Big East should have all final four spots...at least according to the media. It would still mean seven of them didn't make it.

Agree.Big East flopped.

Using the ole SEC football excuse:

They beat each other up too much during the regular season and conf tourney.

Based upon what I saw yesterday, another year of practice would be good for them before trying to play with the big boys.

QUOTE(#21):

If I had to pick someone to win it all at this point it would be Butler. But then again what do I know? I've been picking losers throughout. I am so angry with OSU. How could they???!!!

Your angry....geesh. Matta should have called TO when we tied it with 20 seconds left to put Lauderdale in and go over defensive set. What the hell was he thinking?

Maybe the Morris twins can get a job washing VCU's jocks.

Hard not to smile this morning - VCU '85.
