I imagine Elaterate will be sending out semi-final game invites once we get all teams down to 1 game or less in this round.

The Ohio St. Buckeyes made their case Monday night with an 94-71 victory over Princeton to earn a spot in the Final-4 (Semi-Finals) which was their only reasonable goal this season.
"I think this team might go down as one of the best teams in Conquer Club basketball history," coach All Black Rugby said. "Not as the most talented, and not on style points -- but because they encompassed what the word 'team' means."
Power Forward MTIceman41 delivered on his promise of getting back to his usual 20/20 routine finishing the game with 23 points along with an amazing 26 rebounds which was needed as the Buckeye's Senior center Astoriana suffered a minor sprain in his ankle during warm-ups. Junior guard emilywink added 19 points on 6-9 shooting while collecting 13 assists to add to her stat sheet.
"I didn't want to force any shots and they play tough defense," emilywink told us after the game adding " I tried to be aggressive like last game but when they closed the door on my opportunities I was lucky enough to find the right guy to make the shot." Teammates MTIceman41 and davekettering benefited the most from emilywink's ability to find the open man with davekettering finishing the game with 22 points and 7 rebounds.
Princeton came into the game with high expectations for themselves as they should have after cruising past their opponent in the opening Round but a collective effort by starters Ukey(18pts), iAmCaffeine(14pts, 11 Assists), uckuki(11pts), and Zidan-21(10pts, 14 Rebounds) wasn't enough to help the Tigers continue their dream season.
One thing Ohio St. has always been able to do all year is shoot the ball -- a nation-leading 53 percent this year -- and Tuesday night was no exception. The Buckeyes went 10-for-18 from 3-point range.
Princeton coach Robespierre__ said after the game,"When you're playing a great team like Ohio St. and those guys step up and make the plays, there's not a lot you can do. They made some incredible plays on us."
Princeton will face Kentucky this coming weekend to determine who will play in the Championship!
