Ohio March Madness

Ohio March Madness Believe it or not, Ohio sent more teams than any other state to the NCAA Men's basketball tournament this year. Xavier, Ohio State, Dayton, the University of Akron and Cleveland State were all invited to the "Big Dance." Sadly, only Xavier remains in the tournament and headed for the sweet sixteen. But March Madness has overtaken Ohio with power houses such as Xavier and feel-good Cinderella stories such as Cleveland State. Don't forget "Hoops Hysteria!" Both Xavier and OSU are competing for the women's title. If nothing else college hoops give us a chace to talk about something positive for a change and forget about our economic woes. Ohio March Madness Monday at 9am on The Sound of Ideas®.
