On Thursday, when both Michigan and Michigan State played in the NCAA tournament, apparently a few too many students in one Michigan school district tried to watch the games on their schools' computers.

The basketball craze in the Genesee Intermediate School District reportedly prevented some students from being able to access online instructional resources.

Workers with Genesee Network for Education Telecommunication, or GenNET, were flooded with complaints, leading the school district to block access to college basketball games over its computers.

Both Michigan and Michigan State have advanced to the Sweet 16 and will play Friday.
