Upset Tuesday

Just when Kosmo thinks he has it all figured out with the state boys basketball tournament, along comes a night like Monday that makes Kosmo look downright foolish.
OK, I can hear you all laughing now since Kosmo often sounds foolish anyway, but there were outcomes that Kosmo and others around the state certainly didn't expect during Monday's regional semifinals.
First, just as Kosmo is getting ready for a Pontiac-Southfield regional final on Wednesday, Rochester Adams comes along and spoils that by recording an overtime win over Pontiac.
That was one money shot to send the game into overtime, Nick Zekaj. Great job.
But the surprises didn't stop there.
Kosmo didn't think there was anybody that could stop Ann Arbor Huron in a regional at Ann Arbor Pioneer, but Novi Detroit Catholic Central did exactly that, knocking the defending state runner-up out of the tournament with a 67-54 win to set up an all-county and all-Catholic League regional final on Wednesday against Orchard Lake St. Mary's.
Finally, two other teams Kosmo thought could be at Breslin, Saginaw and Warren De La Salle, were upset. Bay City Western beat Saginaw, and will play Clarkston in a regional final on Wednesday, while De La Salle was beat by Eastpointe East Detroit.
The path to a state title certainly got wide open for those who survived upset Tuesday.
