Ogle Madness II: Elite 8, South and West Regions

12:02 AM EDT on April 8, 2009


Today's Elite 8 battles come from the South and West Regions.  The winners of these two games will join Sam Bradford and Carrie Underwood in next week's Final 4.  The South Region has played very true to form with the 1 and 3 seeds advancing.  The West Region, though, has been the story of the tournament with the surprise run by 9-seed Kristin Chenoweth.  Has the clock struck midnight, or does Cinderella have one more upset in her?  Here are the previews:

South Regional Final: b

mick-cornett vs. thunder-girl-lindsay

(1) Mayor Mick vs. (3) Thunder Girls

Along with Clay Bennett and his rich friends, Mayor Mick was one of the most influential people behind the NBA landing in OKC.  That's why there is a bit of irony to the fact that he's going up against the the Thunder Girls for a berth in the Ogle Madness Final Four.  We know having an NBA dance team in town was one of the mayor's dreams, but how will he feel if his home town's NBA dance team blocks his advancement to the Ogle Madness Final 4?  Good question, huh? 

West Regional Final:

(3) Kevin Durant vs. (9) Kristin Chenoweth

The odds makers figured Chenoweth would have an easy time against Jenni Carlson, but who would have ever predicted the dominance she displayed against Ogle Madness I finalists Amy McRee (the runner-up) and Lauren Richardson (the champion) in back-to-back games.  It will be interesting to see if she has what it takes to beat the silky smooth Kevin Durant, who's already shown enough of a game to sneak out a close one against hot girl Ashlynn Brooke.

Anyway, vote after the jump.   Voting is open until midnight tomorrow.

About Kevin Durant:

Warriors Thunder Basketball
