Monday Links: Looking Back At Weekend Tournaments & A Few Upsets

If you were away for the weekend and unable to keep up with all that happened around the nation in women's basketball, we provide you a brief overview of the weekend in the form of links starting with Sunday results...and as a post-Thanksgiving treat, I will even provide an appropriate soundtrack (with my sincerest apologies to any Ohio State fans).
