On paper, this looks to be a rout as #4 seed, Leilani, the former Cal State Fullerton track star slash stripper slash Playboy model goes up against #13 Kristi Yamaoka, the Southern Illinois University cheerleader who was injured after a fall during a Saluki basketball game.
Leilani's track career ended when it was discovered she was working at a strip club called the Flamingo Theatre near her college campus.
Yamaoka's cheer career ended for the season when she suffered a concussion and fractured vertebrae after tumbling 15 feet from the top of a pyramid. But, as she was wheeled off the court on a stretcher, she moved her arms to the beat of the school fight song garnering a standing ovation from the crowd.
Will a a major upset be pulled here today? Doubtful. But damnit, folks, that's why they play the games.
