KRRO Sports Wrap - Monday, March 24

Chances are, by now your NCAA bracket has been busted up and blown to smithereens.  In what has been one of the most unpredictable tournaments of all-time, more top seeded teams went down over the weekend.

Number-one seed, Wichita State suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of 8th-seeded Kentucky.  Second-seeded Kansas lost to the tenth-seeded Stanford Cardinal.  And the darling of the ball, Creighton, got crushed by Baylor.  Other powerhouse programs that have already been bounced include Duke, North Carolina, Syracuse, Memphis and Villanova.

C.J. Franklin scored a hat-trick last night as the Stampede ripped off their fifth straight win with a 4-0 shutout over Lincoln.  The Herd will host Sioux City at the Arena this Friday night in a battle for third place in the division.

The Minnesota Wild came from behind to beat Detroit 4-3 in overtime.

Jimmy Johnson was in the lead when he blew a tire with seven laps to go.  So, Kyle Busch held off the rest, including his older brother to win at Fontana for the second straight year.

The T-Wolves lost a tough one last night.  They led Phoenix by as many as 22 in the first half and Kevin Love was only one assist away from a triple-double.  But, a terrible Timberwolves turnover in the final minute of the game sealed the deal for the Suns.
