What a day in basketball.
Two teams who have never been to the Final Four before punched their tickets: the University of Washington, and Syracuse University. Who would have thought? From what I was reading online last night, only 15 brackets in ESPN’s Tournament challenge had correctly predicted the Elite 8. I’m assuming there is no one left now.
It was Chantel Osahor driving the Huskies. She had 24 points and 18 rebounds today and was named the regional’s most outstanding player.
Tomorrow’s games feature:
Connecticut vs. Texas
Oregon State vs. Baylor
Beavers-Bears is especially intriguing. You have two complete teams in every position, with very different styles of play. Both teams are cohesive, skilled and high-energy. Either team could win.
