2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament Men’s Semi Finals

Sunday was a great day for upsets.  As a matter of fact not a single #1 seed is left in it and the highest seed is Connecticut at a 3.  Of course your Cinderella story is Virginia Commonwealth which played it’s way in and has won 4 games since then.

Sunday’s Results

Seed Team Record Score Seed Team Record Score Region
1 Kansas 37 – 3 61 11 *Virginia Commonwealth 28 – 11 71 Southwest
2 North Carolina 30 – 8 69 4 *Kentucky 35 – 8 76 East

Tonight we’ll see all 4 men’s teams.  I’ll of course be rooting for the representative from The Big East, the one with the deeply stupid fight song-

UConn Huskies

UConn Husky, symbol of might to the foe.

Fight, fight Connecticut, It’s vict’ry, Let’s go. (go. go. go)

Connecticut UConn Husky,

Do it again for the White and Blue

So go--go--go Connecticut, Connecticut U.


Connecticut, Conneticut Husky, Connecticut Husky

Connecticut C-O-N-N-U!

We’ll start out with the matchup of the underdogs, Butler and Virginia Commonwealth.  Though Commonwealth out Cinderella’s Butler this year, Butler is no favorite and was last year’s shocker going down in the finals to Duke by a mere 2 points.

As for Connecticut it’s never a shock when a 4 takes out a 3 but I think they match up well against Kentucky and despite what the idiot commentators say The Big East is the deepest, toughest conference in College Basketball and has been for years.
