WASHINGTON, D.C. — Nearly half of the crowd at Saturday’s Elite 8 game between Syracuse and Marquette at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. booed President Barack Obama when he was shown on the big screen with just over ten minutes to play in the first half. After the boos erupted, a contingency of Obama supporters countered with cheers.

If you’re in Louisville this week, you might want to wear a jacket. It gets pretty cold being in UK’s shadow. Little Brother put up a good fight, but in the end it wasn’t enough to trump the superior talent of the Cats. The most impressive thing about this win was how different it was from the first game in December. Kentucky was outrebounded 37-32 and allowed 16 Louisville offensive rebounds. Terrence Jones and MKG were absent early, but the pieces came together for a great win.
MVP goes to Darius Miller who flashed that four and done talent with 13 points just when we needed them. Anthony Davis showed that POY swag with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. Celebrate big tonight, Cats fans, but keep your eyes on the prize. It all comes down to Monday now. We’ll have the post game link and a full recap shortly.

DAYTON, Ohio — President Obama came to see March Madness, but he also got lobbied by Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio on developing natural gas in the state.
Mr. Obama flew here on Air Force One Tuesday with British Prime Minister David Cameron to watch a first-round NCAA men’s game between Western Kentucky University and Mississippi Valley State. They were joined by Mr. Kasich and sat in the student section behind one of the baskets at the University of Dayton arena. […]
The president ate a hot dog at the game, chatted with students and appeared to be explaining the finer points of basketball to Mr. Cameron.
At a cost of roughly $180,000 per hour to operate Air Force One, the trip cost taxpayers at least $365,000, not including the staff costs and other expenses.
