Los Angeles: California and March Madness Dreaming

By Lara Boyko - March 20, 2007

This weekend's actions started Saturday morning at 11 am with overcast blue skies outside, but bright visions beaming inside USC's Galen Center.

Slowly but surely, the initial eight were cut down to four and with each loss, another California dream ended.

However for the four who made it to today, in a city where you can see more stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame than in the sky some night, stars and dreams of advancing to the Sweet 16 stayed in their eyes.

Yet as this evening wore on, the NCAA Tournament said good-bye to the Texas A&M Aggies while the George Washington Colonials took a big step in the big dance.

The next team that would send their seniors home with a loss was the Louisville Cardinal. They played their hearts out for 38 minutes, but it was those final two when their dreams were dashed and a pesky Sun Devil team decided they were going to be the last team in the Pac-10 standing at the dance.

March Madness weekend number three is now history and as the final four teams here in LA either slumber or celebrate in their hotel rooms, it's time to look towards next weekend and what dreams may become reality for those 16 teams still in the dance.
