We have completed the inaugural weekend of the SMS Guys Read Books and Basketball Tournament and let me just say it has been a wild one.
While many of the top seeded teams still are alive, many upsets have caused this year's tournament to get very exciting. Who would have every thought that the Printz winning Going Bovine (an early pick to win it all) would fall to Peter and the Starcatchers!
I am very interested to see how One Small Step(Cornell) handles the Newberry winning When You Reach Me (Kentucky) who have been destroying all in their path.
So here comes a much needed little break until the battle resumes next Thursday.
Bring on the Sweet Sixteen…
9. Peter and the Starcatchers (Northern Iowa) versus 5. The Schwa Was Here (Michigan State)
6. Harry Potter (Tennessee) versus 2. The Roar (Ohio State)
1. Hunger Games (Syracuse) versus 5. A Whole Nother Story (Butler)
6. Mudshark (Xavier) versus 2. Cryptid Hunters (Kansas St.)
1. When You Reach Me (Kentucky) versus 12. One Small Step (Cornell)
11. No More Dead Dogs (Washington) versus 2. Science Fair (West Virginia)
1. Leviathan (Duke) versus 4. Doom Machine (Purdue)
3. The Mysterious Benedict Society (Baylor) versus 10. Ender's Game (St. Mary's)
