NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Regional Quarter Finals, Day 2

 

Fight On Connecticut

We must fight on for old Connecticut
We must fight on for Blue and White
We all have to sacrifice for our Huskies to win this fight
We must fight on until the glory’s won
‘Til we have vict’ry on our side
And when we win–we’ll pin–the laurel on those Husky heads held high
U-C-O-N-N, U-C-O-N-N, U-C-O-N-N Fight!
We must fight on for old Connecticut and then defend with all our might
We must teach the lesson well, that our DOG is in this fight
So let us never waver in our questAnd rest not ’til we score
Then standing proud– and loud— we’ll cheer our UConn Huskies evermore.
To the core- Huskies evermore!

UConn Husky

U Conn Husky, symbol of might to the foe.
Fight, fight Connecticut, it’s victr’y, Let’s go
Connecticut U Conn Husky, victr’y again for the White and Blue
So go, go, go Connecticut, Connecticut U. Fight!
C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I C-U-T. Connecticut,
Connecticut Husky,
Connecticut Husky, Connecticut C-O-N-N-U. Fight!

Why yes, I intend to be exactly this obnoxious. You’ll simply have to indulge me.

Day 2 seems to be Upset Day on the Ladies’ side too. Six of 16 is the identical 37.5% ratio we had for the Men. By far the most significant was Buffalo because they also scored a Century (102). The other teams are Central Michigan, Quinnipiac, Oklahoma State, FGCU, and Creighton.

Of course UConn had their record breaking game also.

Do we have favorites? Of course we have favorites.

UConn, sorry Quinnipiac, better draw next year. Buffalo, what a game! Central Michigan because Michigan. I’m not worried about any of the others except Mississippi State and while it would be nice if someone knocked them off I’m not expecting it.

A little Meta. No games Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday Men start the Regional Semi Finals. It is also a travel day for me, we’ll see what happens. Friday the Ladies start their Regional Semi Finals, another travel day and a longer one.

Saturday I’ll be at #MarchForOurLives. Sunday family and Cherry Blossoms. Monday is probably a travel day, could be Tuesday.

I’m not sure how much posting I’ll be able to do, I’ll try my best to keep up.
