Hot when I'm Bryan -- pleased to be joined by Mark Kriegel fox sports dot com's national Thomas welcomed hoops hysteria. Were breaking down all the sweet sixteen action here in Anaheim California mark. You've gone five wins in five days to wrap up the big east tournament New York City they're still red hot and rolling thanks to gamble walker. Extraordinary performance by camel walk. Not a great final two minutes you know I'm -- that the -- UConn had is probably the most dramatic of basketball college basketball's post season. When I found striking tonight was when when it came down to it. It wasn't just Campbell walker they of the freshman named Jeremy lamp was an extraordinary. Talent he was nine of eleven. You know what we have to me from three point range I think it. Arizona's in a hard time containing him is. Well okay we both of -- final fours and we don't talk a lot about home court advantage in the NCAA tournament. Even though San Diego State lost this game this place with rocket. But you know you have to thank the NCAA for that I you know. Is is home court advantage officially licensed I don't know. But certainly in the in the first game. San Diego stated it felt like a legitimate home game which is which and it's all the more UConn accomplishment having. Not only were they tired they have a right to be -- but the overcame a very partisan crowd. Okay let's talk about Arizona's upset over top seeded Duke Derrick Williams played as well as Campbell walker did an hour earlier yet except the difference there is it wasn't. Wasn't just about Derrick Williams might be the best player I've seen all year is 25 points in the first at. I just came out of the interview room two shots he said coach it's -- said. We thought we really deserve to have -- of the double figure lead at halftime I thought that the game was really well in hand what happened in the second half. Wasn't just about Derrick Williams who only scored seven. Okay in the second half was really about team rebound. And they just dominated this Duke Team on the boards I think by my count the second half they outrebounded Duke 25109. And most since he says -- after awhile it got to them you -- on a roll and you just. After -- -- break and that's what happened with -- so was Duke exposed as you alluded to they were pounded on the glass in the second half. I don't think that they were quite exposed. I think they were beaten by a team that got very enthusiastic. And very hot and took something out of them and also you could feel Arizona's confidence increasing all the sudden would they found. Was that they didn't need Derrick Williams having the wall on every possession. No Momo Jones had. Great second half. An extraordinary second half and you could see tied the game on the jump shot. He hit two free throws and you could feel it begin to turn rates of mark is always we appreciate the insight pleasure. That is gonna do it for this edition of hoops hysteria from Anaheim California for Mark Kriegel I'm Bryan Webber. We'll see you next this clip was brought to you by muscle now gets powerful pro team.
