U-M junior and Okemos native Connie Shi, who won her first round of the "Jeopardy!" college tournament (which aired on Thursday, February 2), got stopped in her second, semi-final round, which aired on Friday, February 10.

Shi was in the lead after the semi-finals' first round of questions, but a weaker second round, and a final Jeopardy! question that none of the players answered correctly, resulted in Vanderbilt senior Zack Terrill winning the game and moving on to the finals.

It was about a poetry character. The guy from Stanford had a commanding lead but over wagered on the final question and as a result the guy in second place was able to win due to his more conservative betting style. Connie gave it a great try but the Stanford guy was pretty tough in the second round, he answered about 50% of the questions He would have been in the final but for his aggressiveness in Final Jeopardy and the wrong answer sealed it. Congrats to Connie though for representing her school proudly, she made it past the first round so that was definitely something to be proud of!
