Hello, Rob Wegman here and it’s time for the WRAF Sports Update.
Yesterday’s bubble-bursting collection of games was so brutal that ESPN’s Andy Glockner has termed it Carnage Thursday. At least a dozen teams with legitimate tournament aspirations lost in the quarterfinals of their conference tournaments or earlier. An already cluttered bubble picture has gotten even more unclear as teams previously left for dead have risen back into the discussion, and no one benefited more from this than Illinois State and Virginia Commonwealth. Both of those mid-majors missed out on opportunities to win the automatic bids for their respective conferences but now might make the NCAA Tournament anyway because so many other teams continue to lose as well. Another jam-packed day of action today will no doubt add to the chaos and dramatically alter tomorrow’s landscape. I can’t wait to see what happens.
One thing I know will happen is that Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, and South Carolina all play today. Thanks to upset victories by Georgia and South Carolina in the SEC Tournament yesterday, all 4 local teams either had or have quarterfinal games on tap. South Carolina took Tennessee to the wire this afternoon before falling by 2 and the other 3 teams play tonight. Georgia plays Kentucky, Georgia Tech faces Duke, and Clemson takes on Boston College and both Tech and Clemson are part of a doubleheader beginning at 7 o’clock on ESPN2.
That’s your afternoon sports update sponsored by Toccoa Falls College. I’ll be on a weeklong hiatus for Spring Break next week but I trust that you’ll all keep updated on the world of sports and we won’t miss a beat when I get back. Don’t let me down.
