NCAA Tournament open thread

Morehead St. is about to take on Richmond in the Tourney. Kenneth Faried had 17 rebounds against Louisville, and looked good doing it. Flat out outworked everyone else on the floor, and has a motor that just won't quit. A bit undersized for his position in the pros, but as of right now this is the guy I hope the Blazers draft this year. I know Nate and the Blazers brass have long coveted shooting and the ability to stretch the floor, but I believe we have lacked tough-minded role players who can do the dirty work. Faried fits the bill. Along with Camby, Wallace, Aldridge's newfound rebounding prowess, and the potential return of Oden, Faried would help us become the best rebounding team in the league.

Feel free to comment on Faried or any other NCAA Tournament thoughts you have here.

[EDIT: Since the Richmond v. Morehead St. game is over, changed this to simply a Tourney open thread. Drop your comments here if you're watching. Zags v. Jimmers up next!]
