Sweet 16

Wow.

I’m sad that UCLA wasn’t able to keep burning the incredible fire they had in the first half of tonight’s game against Nebraska. But you know what I love about the Bruins? They never give up. That’s THE winner’s mentality.

They’ll be back.

Very happy for San Diego State, which continues its upset streak, beating West Virginia 64-55.

Mississippi State upset Ohio State. (!) By a lot, too.

Xavier hung on to beat Vanderbilt by a point, which I’m so happy about.

Iowa State took out Wisconsin-Green Bay, 60-56.

And amazing freshman Skylar Diggins lead her Notre Dame team with 31 points in their victory over Vermont.

Who should get frosh of the year – Diggins or Brittney Griner? It’s not as easy a call as it seems.

  2. oops, just caught the comment about sd, sorry, sass. 🙁

  3. My daughter and I are bummed about the Bruins's season coming to an end, but she's already really excited to attend the team banquet, especially if it'll give her a chance to finally meet her personal hero, Allison Taka (I know, I know…).

    Anyone ever gone to one of these things? What's it like? Where do they have 'em? Are they worth attending?

  4. I'd vote for Diggins. She's a point who led her freshman year. Any 6'8" player will have impact, but Diggins skills are immeasurable at this point. Stanford must realize what they lost. ;=)

  5. I was sad to see the Bruins fall. But they are really only losing one impact player. They will be back in 2011 and I am sure they will make another run to the tournament.

    @Patrick, the banquets are fun. I have attended several times and though the speeches and stuff get boring, it is fun to actually interact with the players.

    @Scully – Prahalis is a punk. She is too old to be behaving like that. She is a talented kid but needs to grow up.

    And I am jumping on the bandwagon with San Diego and the Zags.. Let's go underdogs….
