So, two months before his freshman year was set to begin, he deferred admission to Williams College.

This isn’t a multiple choice question. I’m saying you can get all of these for the price of one ticket, which right now is averaging over $13,000 on the secondary market. Of course, the list price is only $200, but you have to have been born into that, since an actual ticket hasn’t been up for sale for decades. So if you want in to Augusta National, you have to scalp your passes like everyone else that isn’t a corporate sponsor.</p><p> Wed, 10 Apr 2013 19:50:53 +0000 Keith Strudler 61931 at http://wamc.org WAMC's Daily Sports Wrap http://wamc.org/post/wamcs-daily-sports-wrap-355 <p>Well the men&rsquo;s NCAA basketball final four matchups are set&hellip;</p><p>Top seed Kentucky punched its ticket to the Big Easy, knocking out third-seed Baylor 82-70.&nbsp; Michael Kidd-Gilchrist led the way with 19 points.&nbsp; The Wildcats will play fourth-seed Louisville in the tournament&rsquo;s semifinals on Saturday.
