Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Łomża in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Great run by the women. This UConn team is just too good. I think they'll make a nice NCAA run as well. Have we ever seen both BB teams ranked this high at the same time? Enjoy it people. Don't take it for granted. The BET in NY is well under way now. Almost there. Yes, we still have to wait until tomorrow. There's plenty of coverage inside to keep you sated until tomorrow. Note: All Bracketology and Bubble Watch links will be updated as of the previous days games. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. See you after the jump...
