*Insert maniacal laughter from John Calipari here*
All horror movie-style jokes aside, Kentucky has looked to be in a league all their own this basketball season. After advancing to the Elite 8 after a 78-39 beat down of West Virginia in which the Mountaineers never came close to even competing with the Wildcats, there has been one question on the minds of everyone watching college basketball.

According to brackets submitted on ESPN.com, more people picked ISU to go all the way to the Final Four than picked them to lose to 14-seed UAB in the first game.
The major upset win speaks for itself, and obviously it was an emotional win for the UAB players.
“For us, it was just huge,” UAB junior Robert Brown said. “We come here, not just to play games, but to actually make some noise and to win some games. To be able to do that and win for Birmingham, win for Coach [Jerod] Haase, it’s a great feeling.”
Brown led all scorers in the upset win with 21 points.
However, the win means so much more for UAB than just advancing. For them, it was a deep feeling of achievement and euphoria that this program, its students and its fan base desperately needed. (more…)

The Tewaaraton Award annually goes to the top men’s lacrosse player in the country, and now two Greyhounds are on watch for it.
Herreweyers joins his fellow attackman, Nikko Pontrello, on watch for the prestigious award. Herreweyers currently sits at No. 3 in the country in terms of goals with 29, and at No. 5 in the country for goals per game with an average of 3.63 per game.
The junior from Ontario has recorded five hat tricks so far this season, and has been named the Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week twice.
Herreweyers, Pontrello and the Hounds will try to shake off a tough loss to Georgetown when they face Lafayette on the road this Saturday.

The Loyola Women’s Lacrosse shocked the college lacrosse world by upsetting No. 8 UVA on their home turf. The Hounds pulled off the overtime upset thanks to a heroic effort from senior Hannah Schmitt, who scored 3 goals in OT, making Loyola Superfans go, “Holy Schmitt!”
Loyola looks to carry that strong momentum back home on Saturday as they host the Lafayette Leopards to kick off their conference schedule.
The Hounds come into the game with a 2-4 record, having played in very close games thus far this season. This will be the Greyhounds’ second season in the Patriot League.
In their first Patriot League season, they went 8-0 in conference play, and beat the Leopards 22-12.
Come on out to Ridley this Saturday to cheer on the Hounds as they begin league play!

NASCAR just turned into an Ashton Kutcher comedy down in Morrow, Georgia as Team Xtreme Racing driver Travis Kvapil is left saying, “Dude, where’s my car?”
Kvapil’s No. 44 car was in a trailer in a hotel parking lot in Morrow, Georgia in preparation for this weekend’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. At 5:34am, the trailer, with the car and spare parts inside, was stolen.
Team Xtreme now finds themselves without a car for the race this weekend, and had to withdraw from the race Friday morning.
Kvapil reported the theft through Twitter while keeping a good sense of humor about him.
“Wow. Anyone near Atlanta find my stolen Cup car let me know! Unreal,” Kvapil first tweeted at 9:13am. (more…)
