March Madness isn’t just a branding term that applies to a basketball tournament. It also clearly applies to NCAA fans. These college basketball enthusiasts get very emotionally involved in the annual battle on the boards, even when they’re undergoing dialysis treatments.
Traditional college basketball powers Kentucky and Kansas each won regional finals on Sunday to join Ohio State and Louisville in the 2012 Final Four in New Orleans next weekend. Here’s a recap of Sunday’s regional final games:
The LSU Tigers led by 5 points early in the second half against the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats, but couldn't hold onto the lead. As a result, they fell to Kentucky today in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament by the score of 60-51. Trent Johnson's squad was extremely resilient, and fought tooth and nail with the best team in the land.
No. 7 Duke, No. 8 Kansas and No. 9 Michigan State all lost this week. Those defeats should clear the way for still-undefeated No. 10 Murray State (23-0, 11-0 Ohio Valley) to race further up the AP NCAA men’s basketball poll. Here’s what’s happening in college basketball this week:
The LSU Tigers welcomed the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats to the P-MAC Saturday afternoon. It was the third consecutive ranked opponent for the Tigers, and it resulted in a third straight defeat. Kentucky was too much to handle for LSU, burying them by the score of 74-50.
The LSU Tiger men's basketball team returns to action on Saturday afternoon, when coach Trent Johnson's squad plays host to the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats, in SEC play, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, in Baton Rouge.
