NCAA Tournament action continues tonight with regional semifinal play from the Midwest and South. Louisville, the top overall seed in the tournament, and Pac-12 champion Oregon will open the Midwest Region in Indianapolis, while the
nightcap from Lucas Oil Stadium will feature a pair of perennial heavyweights as third-seeded Michigan State meets No. 2 seed Duke. The slate in the South starts with top-seeded Kansas taking on No. 4 seed Michigan before 15th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast tries to keep its magical run alive against No. 3 seed Florida.

Marquette, Syracuse, Ohio State and Wichita State were Thursday's winners. Marquette topped Miami-Florida, 71-61, to reach the East Region final in Washington, DC and will next meet fellow Big East foe Syracuse, which knocked off top-seeded Indiana, 61-50. Ohio State got a late three from LaQuinton Ross and earned a 73-70 win over Arizona in the West Region and will next square off against Wichita State, a 72-58 winner over La Salle.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 3 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
