Before the semis tonight, the ladies deserve a shout out. As you may expect with four #1 seeds, both games went into overtime as Miss St advanced into their second straight title game beating Louisville. The Starkville Dogs still have one of the best nicknamed players in Morgan William aka Itty Bitty.

In the second game, Notre Dame pulled off the shocker beating UConn on a late jumper just like last year (Miss St did it). The Irish have beaten the Huskies more times than any other school in the tourney.
The clock struck midnight for Sister Jean and Loyola as Mo Wagner put on an all time performance for Michigan. Wagner is only the third player to score 20+ with 15+ rebounds in a FF game. The others were Bird and Olajuwon so Wagner may have a nice career ahead of him. In sum, Michigan's talent was too much for the Ramblers.

The second game saw a lights out shooting performance, another record setter for threes, as Villanova got out to a 22-4 lead and easily beat Kansas. Anything close to that on Monday and the Wildcats will win again.

Nova will be the first team Michigan plays that was a 5th seed or better. That has never happened to a team before reaching the final game.
Arike Unbowale experienced two lifetime highlights in the same weekend. Not only did she hit a jumper with 1 second left to topple UConn, but she then topped it by knocking down a prayer three pointer from the corner to beat Miss St at the buzzer. Congrats to Notre Dame for winning the title in the most exciting FF ever for the ladies.

I don’t think Wright has ever had a one and done player.

Nova just walked through this tournament, winning all games by double digits. Highly impressive to say the least.
You guys see Di Vincenzo sent out some tweets using racist and homophobic language while he was in high school? Villinova cane out with a statement saying his account had been hacked. When pressed on why it was hacked when he was in high school they retracted the statement.

Good lesson for everyone. Once on the interwebs its there forever.
