The Main Event
Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the ladies. The NCAA women's basketball tournament bracket was unveiled last night, and here's what you need to know:

This is UConn's world and everyone else is just living in it. The Huskies posted an undefeated record (32-0) this season and locked up a 1-seed in the tournament for the 10th year in a row, breaking the University of Tennessee's record streak (1988-1996). They'll look to continue their historical run by becoming the first women's Division I team to win four-consecutive national championships, which would also give them a record 11 total titles. If you haven't gotten it by now, they're good. South Carolina, Notre Dame, and Baylor, who also earned 1-seeds and have lost just one game each, are a few of the top teams looking to take them down. The first and second round games run this Friday through Sunday, with the winners moving on to the "Sweet Sixteen" on March 25. You can check out the rest of the schedule right here.

Now's not the time to get cute if you're putting money down on the women's tournament. UConn hasn't lost a game since November of 2014, and are more of a sure thing than Lindsay Lohan being high on blow this very moment. Take the easy money. Take UConn.

Happy Birthday, Steph
Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry was named the Western Conference's Player of the Week yesterday, on his birthday. We were surprised to learn Steph hadn't won the award every single week, and is only receiving it for the fifth time this year. The man oozes so much swagger he was even able to pull off the dreaded joint husband/wife birthday party... in sweatpants no less.

Related: Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker is the Eastern Conference's Player of the Week for the second time this season. Sorry, but Steph ruined this for you, Kemba. Color us unimpressed.

Hittin' The Ol' Dusty Trail
So your favorite basketball team didn't make the March Madness tournament. It's a bummer, for sure, but at least you didn't lost your job because of it. The same can't be said for Stanford Cardinal men's basketball coach Johnny Dawkins, who was told to clean out his desk after making just one March Madness tournament during his eight-year tenure. He posted a subpar 66-78 record in the Pac-12 with the Cardinal, leading us to believe Stanford should have put boot to Dawkins' ass long ago. Still, Dawkins wasn't the biggest dunce of the day... not even in the bay area. That honor goes to Cal Berkeley assistant coach Yann Hufnagel, who was shitcanned for being a pervert. He violated the school's anti-sexual harassment policy, and is out the door.

Injury of the Week
Australian rugby star Haydn Peacock was tackled by his dick (yes, his dick), which was literally almost torn in half. Peacock described the injury, which required 11 stitches, by saying, "their centre pretty much ripped my dick off." Luckily Peacock had the loving support of his teammates, who were "pissing themselves laughing" after seeing the mangled member.
