Big 10 Champions

I had pretty much given up on the OSU men after their 2 home losses (Michigan State and Wisconsin). But last week the Bucks went to Evanston and eeked out a 75-73 win over the Northwestern. Then, after being behind by 15 in East Lansing yesterday, the Buckeyes rallied and senior William Buford hit a long 2-pointer with one second left for a 72-70 win. So Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State share the regular season championship with identical 13-5 records. That’s three titles in a row for OSU.

The Kentucky men easily handled Georgia on senior night, then went to Gainesville and won 74-59. So that was a perfect 16-0 and only the third time in history that someone has run the table in the SEC (Kentucky all three times).

Conference tournament semifinal losses for the ladies. For Kentucky, after yet another close win over Florida, the Cats lost to LSU for the second time this season. LSU went on to the finals and lost to perennial power Tennessee. Ohio State beat Michigan in the quarterfinals but then lost to Nebraska in the semifinals. The Huskers went on to lose the championship to Purdue in 2 overtimes.Now the ladies have a long wait until NCAA pairings are announced.

My area was not affected by Friday’s severe weather but many parts of Kentucky were. This morning we woke up to 4 inches of snow, but it has largely melted.
