Two Down Two to Go!

Well ladies and gentleman two teams are getting ready to dance in San Antonio after the results of today's games. In the west UCLA beat Xavier in convincing fashion with a final score of 76-57. For most of the first half the game was close but in the second half UCLA tightened the screws defensively and really demonstrated their talent on the offensive end. After wins in the second round and the sweet sixteen that were less then impressive the Bruins finally played like the team I picked to win it all. In the second game of the night and in the East region UNC gutted out an 83-73 win over Louisville. UNC used there depth, the speed of Ty Lawson, and a double-double from Tyler Hansbrough to pull away from the Cardinals in the final minutes. Grant Wahl, as always, has some interesting insight over at Sports Illustrated which can be read here:
With 10th seed and current Cinderella Davidson playing Kansas in the Midwest regional and Memphis and Tennessee, 1 and 2 respectively, facing off in the South Regional tomorrow looks to be another GREAT day of basketball. Is it possible that for the first time in Tournament history all 4 one seeds will go chalk and play in the Final Four? Check out CBS and find out!
