Sunday DBR: Elite

The Lady Bears laid a whoopin' on Kentucky to advance to the Elite Eight. Speedster Trayvon Bromell tied the junior world record in the 100-meter dash with an elite time of 10.01.

April is almost here, but that doesn't mean that March Madness is going anywhere. With two Elite Eight games and four Women's Sweet 16 games yesterday, there was plenty of madness to go around. Thankfully for Baylor, the madness did not appear in their game, as the Lady Bears thoroughly dominated the Wildcats.

Elite Eight Bound

No. 5 WBB Routs Kentucky, 90-72, Advances to Elite 8 -

Lady Bears Advance to Elite 8 - OKCChuck

The game started off slow for both sides; it took five and a half minutes for the combined score to reach twenty points. However, by that time, the Lady Bears were already ahead, 13-7, and they weren't about to look back. Although the Lady Bears got into early foul trouble, they were up by a comfortable margin by the time the starters had to sit. Kentucky took the opportunity to bring the game to within five, 32-27. However, the Lady Bears pulled together and pushed the lead back out to 49-32 at the half.

In the second half, it was time for freshman Khadijiah Cave to shine. She had 12 points, two rebounds, and one block in 13 minutes of work to finish with 18 points, nine rebounds, and two blocks. National Player of the Year finalist Odyssey Sims had another stellar game with 25 total points, 7 assists, and 3 steals. Nina Davis tore it up with 20 points and eight rebounds. Niya Johnson had a double-double with 11 points and 11 assists. Makenzie Robertson finished with nine points and Sune Agbuke had herself seven rebounds.

Baylor will face off against the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Monday for the right to advance to Nashville after the Irish rolled Oklahoma State, 89-72. This game will be quite the challenge for the Lady Bears, especially since the game is in South Bend. More on this game tomorrow.

Elite Eight: Men's Version

Arizona and Wisconsin had an...uh...interesting end. The refs got plenty of screen time in this controversial ending .

Apparently, Arizona students were not happy about the loss.

The clock struck midnight on the Flyers as they were outmatched by the Florida Gators.

Texas Derby

FC Dallas beat the Portland Timbers last night, 2-1, putting them in first place in the MLS standings. The Houston Dynamo have been claiming that there is "Only one team in Texas" this season. With the Texas Derby (the FC Dallas-Houston Dynamo match) occurring this weekend, the Hoops took advantage of their lofty position and posted this Tweet.

SHOTS FIRED! What would Houston respond with?

BURN! (For those unaware, FC Dallas were at the top of the standings early last season, but failed to even make the playoffs.) I'm looking forward to Saturday.
