From 344 to 65: No Change

Filed under: Uncategorized — jsheehan @ 1:22 pm

Creighton and Notre Dame were the only discussion-relevant teams to play yesterday. Notre Dame handled St. John’s easily at home, leaving open the possibility they could play their way into the field in New York next week. They need a trip to the semis with the quality win in the quarters that would provide. Creighton tried to end their hopes by blowing a 20-point second-half lead over Wichita State in a hail of turnovers and missed free throws, but State couldn’t hold a rebound with two seconds left, and Booker Woodfork stuck an 18-footer as time expired. Neither of these games helped the teams involved; it’s just bad-loss avoidance.

Also, Cornell became the first team to clinch a bid by beating Penn as Princeton was losing at Columbia, giving them their second straight Ivy League crown.

There are critical games all over the docket today. Throw in the World Baseball Classic, and I really need more TVs for the next week or so.
