Wisconsin and Siena win slugfests, MSU and Cleveland State slaughter

  • #9 Siena - #8 Ohio State:  Albany is rocking.  The Siena Saints were so excited to get out of the armpit of New York that they decided to bring us the most captivating game of the tournament thus far, at the expense of the O-H...I-O State Buckeyes.  The double overtime thriller was a "two face" of a game; not only was it the most exciting but it may also have been the ugliest.  Prior to Ronald Moore's three pointer with 3.9 to go in double OT, the Saints committed 22 turnovers and were just lucky to hit the rim from beyond the arc (6-24).  The Buckeyes led by 11 at one point early in the second half but the Saints were too resilient and advances to the second round for the fourth time in their last five NCAA appearances.
  • #12 Wisconsin - #5 Florida State:  The #12's and the #5's are interchangable.  Wisconsin confirmed the prior statement, as they were the third #12 seed to punch their ticket for the second song of the Big Dance with their win over the Florida State Seminoles, 61-59 in OT.  Trevon Hughes layup with two seconds left helped Bucky the Badger prevail.  In all honesty, this game was not going anywhere for a good portion late in the second half, both teams remained scoreless for four whole minutes.  So if you like watching people run windsprints, you were probably content.  Wisconsin will now take on the Xavier Musketeers on Sunday.
  • #13 Cleveland State -#4 Wake ForestSpeechless.  Wake Forest decided to completely erase anything positive that was accomplished during the regular season by getting man-handled by the Cleveland State Vikings.  The Vikings played as a team while Wake Forest played pathetic variations of one-on-one basketball.  The result, a 84-69 landslide victory for the Viks, who never let Wake lead at any point.  Reservations have been made for two on Sunday for Arizona and Cleveland State.
  • #15 Robert Morris - #2 Michigan State:  Michigan State slept through the first 15 minutes of this one, allowing Robert Morris to remain tied with a heavyweight contender.  The remaining 25 minutes of the game, Sparty outscored the inferior Colonials 47-32.  Raymar Morgan led the Spartans with 16 points to aid MSU to the 77-62 win.  The next chapter of the Trojan War is about to be written, as USC awaits.
