We are into the semifinals! It’s been a long time coming and one squad will earn the right to go toe-to-toe with Al’s Jordan-led buzzsaw.

Where do we currently stand? Let’s take a look at the updated bracket:

Last week, Jake and Chad squared up in an elimination match that had an old-school flair. Although it was close for much of the week, Chad was able to pull away and secure a 33-19 win; eliminating Jake.

This week, Chad will face off against a squad making their first appearance in an elimination game. Tanya’s squad was sent to the brink of elimination when she went up against Al in the 3rd Round. She’s had to wait a few weeks to get her chance at redemption and to earn a rematch with Al.

What does this week’s match-up give us?

Chad vs. Tanya

We have a match-up between two of the best point guards to suit up in Carolina Blue (and they both happened to wear number five).

How will Chad’s old-school front court duo of James Worthy and Bob McAdoo match up against new-school duo of Tyler Hansbrough and Eric Montross?
