Busted Brackets, Buzzer Beaters, and Beatdowns

Glad to have you back Topper followers,

Raise your hand if your bracket is somewhere in a landfill right now. Yeah, us too. But don’t fret! We’re going to catch you up on all the intramural action that’s been taking place to take your mind of those Cinderella Stories.

Basketball

The #1 Seed from the Women’s Bracket, WKU Soccer, laid your typical #1 versus #8 smack-down last night against the Dream Team by having a mercy rule by the 2-minute mark.

From the Fraternity Basketball Bracket, both FIJI Purple and and Farmhouse mercy ruled their opponents to advance to the quarterfinal part of the bracket.ย  Manny Serrano from team Farmhouse did his best Steve Nash impression, draining 7 3-pointers and scoring an overall 27 points in the win. Farmhouse and FIJI Purple will face off next Thursday; the winner is to face the winner of KA Magic/SAE Gold, potential rematches lurking from the regular season in the semifinals.

First Round of CoRec games took place Tuesday with 4 teams advancing into the quarterfinals: Ballstars, Constantly, WKU, and Hyperbeast. All teams will be in action next Tuesday. Bold prediction: Look for team WKU to dish out some revenge after a close loss to SAE/KD in the regular season. Our prediction is WKU over SAE/KD, 55-48.

Soccer

I must say, we’re all pretty excited we’ve been able to play some soccer games this week. Our women’s bracket is down to the Elite 8 as Chi Omega leads the field as the #1 seed. Chi-O will face ADPi in their quarterfinal match-up. But ADPi has a true scoring threat in Hannah Murphy, so Chi-O should be on upset alert come Monday!

For the men’s bracket, a mix of well-rounded teams litter the playoff field as several teams try to fight their way through the first and second rounds of the bracket. Quarterfinal games will take place on Monday, narrowing down the field to our top 8 teams.

Wiffleball
