It was the wrong Big Red this time as Cornell hammered the Badgers yesterday in the NCAA Tournament. Led Ryan Wittman, The son of former NBA guard Randy Wittman, the Ivy League champions made short work of a Badger team that struggled at the end of the season. Cornell is the first Ivy League team to advance to the Sweet Sixteen since Penn made the Final Four in 1979 losing to Magic Johnson and Michigan State. The Badger women were also knocked out yesterday losing to Vermont. They had their second best record ever this year but it meant nothing in the tournament.

Congrats to Wausau West and Wausau Newman as they head to the Girls State Basketball Tournament later this week. It's the first trip to State for the Warriors. Coach Pat Galligan is a good guy and Jessica Waldvogel is one of the toughest players I've ever seen. She's like a smaller version of Amanda Nechuta. They should compete well.
