Published Add your comment

The March Madness NCAA tournament lived up to its billing over the weekend, with two shocks in the Final Four.

Seventh seed Connecticut comfortably beat former favorites and first seeds Florida 63 to 53, while eighth seed Kentucky edged out two seed Wisconsin 74-73.

This means the Huskies and the Wildcats will go head to head tonight for the title at 9:10pm ET, with Kentucky hoping for more miracles from Aaron Harrison, who provided yet another game-winning 3-pointer Saturday.

Across to the MLB, and the Boston Red Sox continued their poor start to the season, with the reigning World Series champions going down 4 nothing to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Elsewhere, Detroit Tigers lost their first game of the season 3-1 to Baltimore Orioles, and the New York Yankees won 6-4 over the Toronto Blue Jays.

In the NFL, former 2,000 yard running-back Chris Johnson will pick his destination for 2014 this week, with the 28-year-old looking to revive his career.

And finally in hockey, reigning Stanley Cup champions Chicago Blackhawks continue to defy the odds as they crushed St Louis Blues 4-2 without several top stars.
