Marquette owned the lead throughout the second half, but Kentucky refused to go away, getting to within a basket in the final minute. But the Golden Eagles — that's what Marquette is, right? — held on, hitting their free throws down the stretch to win 74-66. Marquette will face Stanford after the Cardinal kick the shit out of Cornell's Ivy pussy later on. If you can even call Cornell an Ivy. It's like the Ohio State of the Ivy League.
In other late-afternoon action, UNLV is serving the beat down on Kent Read-Kent Write-Kent State, while Oral Roberts is setting itself up for plenty of fellatio jokes with a sorry performance against Pitt.
This concludes today's blogging; in the meantime I recommend looking at your bracket with regret and making fun of the Baylor cheerleaders. But seriously, I think it's nice someone saved them from the slaughterhouse.
