After an impressive run to the Big Ten tournament title, Michigan State became a trending pick to reach the Final Four. That journey starts today with a 4:40pm ET tip against Delaware. Do the Spartans have any reason to worry about the Blue Hens?
In a fitting end to a frustrating season, Iowa lost yet another close game to a good team, this time to Tennessee in overtime.
Traevon Jackson scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds and Ben Brust added 17 points and four boards as they teamed up to lead No. 12 Wisconsin to a 75-35 victory over American on Thursday at BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
In the first game of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, No. 11 seed Dayton upset No. 6 seed Ohio State, 60-59, at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo. The Buckeyes’ Aaron Craft had one last attempt at a game-winning shot, but it bounced off the rim.
Today at 12:40pm ET, Wisconsin will begin its bid to get Bo Ryan that elusive Final Four appearance with a matchup against American. This one will be played in Milwaukee, so the crowd figures to include a heavy contingent of Badger faithful. That will help, but this is a game where Wisconsin doesn’t figure to need much of a boost.
Two teams whose campuses are a mere 75 miles apart will clash today in Buffalo, NY, as Ohio State takes on Dayton.
Well, Iowa’s first taste of March Madness didn’t last long. Heck, it wasn’t really even a taste. More like a sip, as the Hawkeyes were bounced in a play-in game by Tennessee. I guess it shouldn’t be a shock. The Hawkeyes lost six of their last seven games entering the tourney. Conversely, the Volunteers arrived in Dayton, Ohio, with some mojo. It’s just too bad it all had to end like this for Iowa, whose season once glowed with such promise.
