    “I had everybody on the team stay, which that was all voluntarily,” Lady Bearcat head coach Jeff Hawkins said.

  • My Final Four predictions

    The time of the year where you are the most indecisive is here: the week you fill out your March Madness bracket.

    When it comes to filling out a bracket, there are two types of people. First, there’s the people who maybe recognize three teams in the bracket, and finish making their picks in five minutes.

    Then there’s the people who have some knowledge on college basketball, and will spend more time than necessary breaking down every matchup, and debating teams in your head all the way to the start of the first tipoff on Thursday.
