Campus Connect: College Sports, Entertainment & Viral News – 3/25

It’s Monday, March 25 and we have a little break from March Madness for the next few days. College life can be busy, so at times it can be tough to keep up with the daily news cycle. That’s why we bring you Campus Connect, where you can catch the latest news in college sports and entertainment to keep on top of the buzz that everyone on campus will be talking about.

What happened last night? What events are coming up today? We have you covered with all of that and more.

Let’s dive right in.


College Sports News

The 2019 NCAA Tournament is in full swing with the opening weekend in the books. That means the competition is set to really ramp up with the Sweet 16 set to tip-off on Thursday, March 28 and continues through Friday, March 29.

Incredibly, for the first time ever in March Madness history, there is one perfect bracket remaining after opening weekend. NCAA.com tracks millions of brackets and one named “Center Road” on the Bracket Challenge Game is 48-of-48. The previous record for perfect picks lasted through the tournament’s opening 39 games.


COED Girl of the Day

Today, we feature Monica Conidi from Arizona State University. Monica is a fitness model with a growing social media following of more than 14,000.


Entertainment News

Dr. Dre sparked some laughter on social media over the weekend when he boasted about his daughter, Truly Young, getting into the University of Southern California “own her own.” The comments came on Instagram with a photo of Truly and her acceptance letter, along with a shot at the college admissions scandal that has involved plenty of high-profile names like Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.

After months of anticipation and speculation, Apple is expected to announce its Netflix-killing streaming service today during their “It’s Show Time” event.

Food of the Day

International Waffle Day started in Sweden on March 25 and spread all over. I guess I’m ok to do this since my DNA says I’m partly from Sweden! I was looking through recipes the other day and found this one for Bananas Foster with pecans. Hubby says to keep this recipe! This was a great Sunday morning treat. Maybe I’ll serve this the next time my kids and grands come. What’s your favorite breakfast food to serve family or friends? . ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ . #internationalwaffleday #internationalwaffleday2018 #waffles #bananasfoster #foodie #mybhg #betterhomesandgardens #simplesundayslowdown #breakfast #sundaymorning #startyourdayright #homemade #instagood #yummy #foodgram #countryeats #igfood #wordboard
