Go Big Blue!

NCAA Basketball seems to be the focus of many of my peers the last few days. The SEC Championship was today, March 14th, at 12:30 p.m. The not ranked Mississippi State was defending the title against the second-ranked University of Kentucky. Surprisingly, it was an extremely close game, where the Wildcats were down by one to two points for most of the time. Freshman starter, DeMarcus Cousins, caught a rebound and beat the buzzer with a shot that tied up the game. Overtime continued the nail-biting, but when John Wall made a crucial three-pointer, Kentucky sealed the deal. The final score was 75-74. This was Kentucky's first SEC Championship since 2004, and it's 26th overall.

The Wildcats are almost guaranteed to be the number one seed in the NCAA tournament. The championship brackets should be announced today. ESPN "bracketology" analysts debate the worthiness of different collegiate teams, as the NCAA selection committee reviews every teams' seasons. 65 teams will be selected to play in the opening round of the tournament. I feel that Kentucky may just go all the way, we'll see!
