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.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
