National Associated Press College Basketball Writer Talks March Madness

The lead national college basketball writer for the Associated Press Jim O'Connell joined Alex Smith and Matt Sinise during a Round of 32 edition of One on One.

O'Connell, former Fordham SID, husband of Fordham Hall of Famer Anne Gregory-O'Connell and father of current SID Anderw O'Connell, was on hand for the Georgetown upset at the hands of Florida Gulf Coast, and gives his thoughts on what is holding the Hoyas back come tournament time.  He talks about how one fewer scholarship for every team has caused greater parody throughout the college basketball scene.  Could Duke make some noise in the tournament?  Will Mississippi's impressive run continue? 

Meanwhile, the Atlantic 10 had five representatives in the dance, but since the taping of this interview, the tournament haven't been kind to highest mid major.
