Entry for March 15, 2009 part 2

There have been a lot of upsets in conference tournaments this year. Not the least of which is Ohio State’s 82-70 semifinal win over Michigan State. The Spartans were the Big 10 regular-season champs, and were hoping for a #1 seed in the Big Dance had they been able to win the Big 10 tourney.

To get the semis, the Bucks had to come from behind and nip Wisconsin 61-57 in the quarterfinals Friday. This afternoon, the Big 10 championship game is Purdue vs. Ohio State.

Kentucky beat Ole Miss Thursday in the SEC first-round, but then lost to regular-season champion LSU Friday. The Cats are unlikely to get an NCAA bid, breaking a string of 17 consecutive visits to the Big Dance.
