The weather was pretty nice today, but I stayed in and watched basketball for most of it.  Duke beat Miami in a 1 versus 12 seed where the 12 seed just wouldn’t go away.  Duke won the game 77-74.  It wasn’t a great game, but survive and advance, right?

Georgia Tech beat our NC State in another close game.  The Wolfpack might have won but they were bringing the ball up while down three when Javi Gonzalez dribbled the ball off his foot and someone (Derrick Favors I think?) grabbed the ball and went for a fast break.  Gonzalez grabbed his jersey to stop him, but then he held on so that Favors (or whoever) spun around on the floor.  It was a very obvious intentional foul and warranted the technical foul assessed to State and they ended up losing by three.  Who knows?  I’d rather Duke face State to get revenge for the loss earlier in the season, plus I tend to root for North Carolina teams (except North Carolina) when they’re not playing Duke.

In other conference tournament news, Purdue, the sixth ranked team in the country, scored only 11 points in the first half of their game against Minnesota and Ohio State needed double overtime to beat Illinois.

Amanda went out to Olive Garden again with the small group girls.  Milly and I stayed behind and hung out, playing a bit and watching basketball.  I didn’t bother putting her down for her late nap because she was mostly in a good mood, but I did give her a bath and feed her early.  Bath time with Milly is so much fun because she enjoys herself so much.  She’ll just sit in there and splash around while making noises, and she’d probably be happy to do it all night.

On the matter of feeding Milly and putting her to bed early, I thought it would be a good idea because tomorrow we set the clocks back for daylight savings time.  She’s usually in fed and in bed by 8:00 or so, but tonight I had her down a little after 7:30.  Hopefully that will help her adjust.
