Elite Eight Features Cereal Powers Advancing
The Cereal Madness bracket has been wildly popular among listeners, fans and our show guests. The Sweet 16 round has been exciting and controversial. Here are the results from the action on Friday's show.
Frosted Flakes 77 Life 66
The second seeded Tigers were "great" from the opening tap in building an early 20 point lead and never looked back in defeating Life. The sugar power was too much as the Flakes shot 55 percent from the field. The tempo was not favorable for Lifers who were outscored 36- 8 on fast break points. It was evident in this game that only Mikey liked Life.
Fruit Loops 74 Trix 59
Toucan Sam was too much for the Silly Rabbit as the Birds dominated all phases of the game. Fruit Loops used a smothering defense to suffocate the Rabbits who never had a chance. The changing of the the Trix offense going away from its traditional round game plan to fruity shapes was a big detriment in deciding their fate.
Sugar Pops 101 Wheaties 100 3 OT
In the game of the tournament thus far, Sugar Pops pulled the upset over the long standing sports icon in outlasting Wheaties in triple overtime. The Pops had seven scorers in double figures in a game that featured 26 lead changes and 15 ties. Despite five Wheaties players fouling out, the Shockers had a chance to win at the buzzer but a long three-pointer rimmed out.
Cheerios 68 Cocoa Puffs 65
In a wild and crazy finish, the Honey Nutters prevailed in one of the most controversial endings of the tournament. With the game tied with 07 left, Sony the Cuckoo Bird flew onto the court in protest of a charging call. The Puffs had the ball when Coco Crisp Jr. drove the lane and hit a running one-handier to seemingly give them the lead. The bucket was waved off by referee Tim Donaghy who called an offensive foul. Cheerio Johnson hit the technical foul shots to give them the victory. Sonny was escorted out of the arena while being heard saying "How much did you have on that game Donahy? But I'm still cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!
