We'll do a double thread here today, as both the women and the men see action.

Nebraska is taking on Kentucky Sunday in the late game around 9:07pm. The Huskers will be looking for the school's first Elite Eight appearance tonight against a 4th seed Kentucky squad. The Wildcats are 27-7 on the year, losing 5 games in the SEC alone. Should be a ton of red in Kansas City tonight to cheer on Coach Yori's Cornhuskers, who are also looking to become the NCAA's all-time most improved team. Tune in to ESPN for the action!

Don't forget, voting is still open for the Women's Naismith Award. Get your vote in for Kelsey Griffin. There are two Uconn players on the ballot, so Husky fans will have to split their votes...which helps. Fans can vote once per day, so click here to find out how to cast your ballot.

(Men's update after jump...)

Kansas State goes down, as does Kentucky. TheOhio State upset just didn't seem all that surprising to me. Maybe because the Buckeye's were a quiet top ten team this year. Much like the Duke Blue Devils. Anyway, Duke is the only #1 seed left. What a crazy tournament...

We are down to just 8 teams. Here are the current CornNation Bracket standings:


That's it for now. Let's jump on here for the womens' game!
