wolverines destroy volunteers, longhorns advance as well

timmy hardaway jr and the wolverines are super hot right now.  they closed out the big ten season going 9-4, but of their 4 losses 2 of them were close games against #1 ohio st, another was by 2 at illinois, and the last was by just 1 pt vs #12 wisconsin.  they came into today's matchup a 1.5 pt underdog vs tennessee, which looked about right when the volunteers were leading 23-17 with seven minutes to go in the half.  but michigan then outscored them 58-22 the rest of the way to win by 30, which is an absolutely ridiculous blowout for an 8-9 game.  oh, and i definitely remeber having that 1990 hoops tim hardaway card. 

texas got by oakland despite a late rally to make it a close game.  i'm writing about this one because i like the longhorn's final four chances.  they were in the debate for a 1 seed two weeks ago before they lost 4 of their last 8.  i'm also kind of picking them by default; i hate duke, i don't believe san diego st is actually any good, and i think uconn already had their magic in the big east tourney.  plus ever since i lived in austin for a few months i've liked rooting for the 'horns.
