PORTLAND, OR - MARCH 15: Kendall Williams #10 of the New Mexico Lobos reacts as he helps lead the Lobos in defeating the Long Beach State 49ers 75-68 in the second round of the 2012 NCAA men's basketball tournament at Rose Garden Arena on March 15, 2012 in Portland, Oregon.

That was about the only good thing for the MWC yesterday as the fifth seeded Lobos held off 12th seeded Long Beach State. Elsewhere, 6th seeded UNLV was upset by 11th seeded Colorado while 11th seeded Colorado State was not able to pull off the same upset over 6th seeded Murray State. The MWC's fourth team in the tourney, San Diego State, kicks off against North Carolina State in the first set of game today.
See who makes more than Coach Pete! Some are expected while others (June Jones!) make no sense at all.
Happy birthday to reader RenameThe! This would be an awesome day to have a birthday if you worked at a place that gave you a day off for your birthday and your city happened to be hosting NCAA Tournament games and you had tickets to said games. That would be really awesome in my book, but maybe not yours.
