Ogle Madness VIII: The Final Four


After 61 matchups over three weeks, welcome to Ogle Madness VIII Final Four. What an interesting one it is. Here are the games:

Game 1: (2) Gary England vs. (3) Olivia Munn
Game 2: (1) Joleen Chaney vs. (2) Russell Westbrook 

The winner of these two battles will face off in the Ogle Madness VIII Championship Game on Monday. Voting is open through tomorrow night. Before we get to the voting, let's recap an Elite 8 that saw three 1-seeds go down:

england vs sutton

Northeast: (2) Gary England defeated (1) Emily Sutton 416-347

Everyone wondered what would happen the first time these two local behemoths matched up. Would the grizzled veteran have enough left in the tank or would the young upstart topple a king? It turns out that Lord England isn't quite ready to go away just yet. Jump back!


durant munn

Midwest: (3) Olivia Munn defeated (1) Kevin Durant 375-332

It's been a rough year for Kevin Durant. You wouldn't think the a Jones fracture would affect him in an online celebrity tournament, but how else do you explain this? Maybe there's just a lot of Newsroom fans in OKC.


joleen hefner goats

Southeast: (1) Joleen Chaney defeated (6) Lake Hefner Goats 430 - 418

And the clock struck midnight...

After trailing most of the day, Joleen Chaney made an amazing comeback and squeaked by the Lake Hefner Goats. The victory was helped by some timely campaigning. You still have to give it up to The Goats. They battled Joleen Chaney to the end, and also took down Bob Stoops and the buzzsaw that was the Red Dog Cafe Chef.


rw lacey swope

West: (2) Russell Westbrook defeated (1) Lacey Swope 351 - 263

This year, Lacey Swope just never could quite recapture the lightning in a bottle that led to her storybook championship run last year. After barely squeaking out a win over Steven Adams, Russell Westbrook went to coast to coast on her like she was the 76ers. It was never really all that close. What a year Russell is having. MVP! MVP! MVP!

It's time to vote!
