March Madness is back this weekend with the first game already underway. The Wichita State Shockers and Louisville Cardinals are at halftime with the Shockers leading by one point. The second game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Syracuse Orange will follow. Both games should be very exciting. The winners will play Monday night for the NCAA championship. This is always one of the most exciting times of the year. Some people still have brackets they are worried about, while other people are just watching some great basketball. If you don’t have anything else to do, turn on CBS to see some great games and don’t forget about the championship on Monday night.
After last night’s Duke vs. Louisville game, Bulls fans may think that Derrick Rose’s injury wasn’t so bad. Louisville guard, Kevin Ware, broke his right leg during the first half of their Elite 8 game. It was probably the worst sports injury since the Redskins Joe Theismann. Players couldn’t bring themselves together after seeing their teammate suffer such a horrific injury. However, before being carried off the court, Ware called his teammates over and told them to just win the game and that is exactly what they did.
Ware underwent surgery last night in an Indianapolis hospital. Coach Rick Pitino was with Ware during his surgery. This morning, Ware is up on crutches and wearing his Regional Championship hat.
With Rose’s status for this season still up in the air, I’ve spent my time watching the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, with the many upsets my bracket isn’t looking the greatest, but I still love watching the games. It has definitely been a nice distraction. Since we all know the Rose questions won’t stop until he returns, I think I’ll just continue watching March Madness because at this point it is much more exciting than following a story that hasn’t had any news in a long time.
