Tennessee beat Kentucky to take the SEC title. A tough, physical game in front of more than 11,000 fans, and Tennessee hit 16 three-point shots:

(Coach Pat) Summitt, whose voice was raspy after yelling mostly at the officials, has reason to sing.

The Lady Vols (31-2), who were unbeaten in the SEC, won their 15th tournament title overall. This one was a bit special because it marked only the third time Tennessee went undefeated in winning the regular-season title before winning the conference tournament. Tennessee also did that in 1994 and 1998.

Duke beat North Carolina to win the ACC title.

Ohio State grabbed their third consecutive Big Ten championship by taking out Penn State.

Junior colleges:

Trinity Valley survived a close semifinal in overtime to advance to the Region 14 conference championship tomorrow.

Players from top-ranked Pensacola recently told the school’s board of trustees what the school has meant to them. Awww!

Sun Belt/MTSU:

Arkansas State beat Middle Tennessee State in Sun Belt Conference play. ASU Coach Brian Boyer called a timeout with 28 seconds left to play, and told athletes not to celebrate on-court – that they would celebrate in the locker room. What a class act.

Here are post-game interviews with both teams. Sad.

College bonus:

Is Virginia Coach Debbie Ryan still untouchable?

From the Department of Duh: Teresa Weatherspoon has Louisiana Tech on and poppin’.
