Louisville, Wichita State, Michigan, Syracuse Set For Final Four

Michigan 61 Syracuse 56

Louisville 72 Wichita State 68

The NCAA Tournament has whittled down to four teams, with Syracuse, Michigan,
Louisville and Wichita State each looking to advance for a chance to play in
the championship game Monday night.

Saturday's first matchup pits Rick Pitino's No. 1 seeded Louisville Cardinals
against the surprise Wichita State Shockers, who entered the tournament as the
ninth seed in the West Region and took down the region's two top seeds in
Gonzaga and Ohio State to reach their first Final Four since 1965. It's
Louisville's second straight Final Four appearance and the seventh overall for
Pitino, who is in search of his second NCAA championship. His Kentucky
Wildcats won the title back in 1996.

In the late game, a pair of four seeds in Michigan and Syracuse will clash.
The Orange are making a fifth Final Four appearance and fourth under coach Jim
Boeheim, who won it all back in his last trip in 2003. The Wolverines won the
title in 1989 and are back in the Final Four for the first time since
consecutive trips with the "Fab Five" in 1992 and '93.

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.
