No need for April Fool’s pranks today–Washington has cornered that market. On to other things.
In sports, the longest winning streak in college sports came to a surprising end last night when Mississippi State’s Women’s Basketball Team beat the University of Connecticut’s team, in overtime.

The other men’s final four game is North Carolina vs. Oregon. How’s your bracket?
