The above sentence is one of the major reasons why the Butler Bulldogs, winners of 24 straight games, are now headed home to Indianapolis not just because they have to but also to play in next weekend's Final Four. Matt Howard ran into foul trouble early but it didn't matter as Brad Stevens' team used defense and rebounding to knock off two-seed Kansas State 63-56 in Salt Lake City.

Blue Pride: Wildcats Leave Mark Despite Loss

March 28th, 2010
KentuckyKentucky fans typically aren't ones for moral victories. After all, when your program has 2,023 victories, 13 Final Four appearances and seven national titles, you get accustomed to winning where it matters most...on the scoreboard.

But this year has been different. A new coach. A new system. New players. Even new uniforms. So it stands to reason that even though disappointment abounds in the Bluegrass State following the Cats' hard-fought loss to a gritty West Virginia squad in the Elite Eight, there's still plenty of reasons for the Cats to still hold their heads high.

Northern Iowa celebrates their win over Kansas

After a rather routine Friday the hope was that Saturday would provide even more surprises. But few people had in mind what the Northern Iowa Panthers did in Oklahoma City when it came to the shocker of the day. The Missouri Valley champions got off to a quick start early and did not let up until the game was decided, knocking off the top overall seed 69-67 to move on to the Sweet 16 next week in St. Louis. Ali Farokhmanesh led the way with 16 points, knocking down what has to be the shot of the Tournament thus far to give Northern Iowa a 66-62 lead with 34 seconds remaining.

Vanderbilt's A.J. OgilvyLast year, every team in the SEC had plenty of time to watch the Sweet 16 from their couches, as not a single team advanced past the first weekend, confirming what everyone knew all along...the SEC just flat out wasn't good last year.
