    We're under way!

    Albany out in front of Mt. St. Mary's early.

    NCSU/Xavier should be a good one later on

    MSM has roared back from a 19 point deficit to take the lead by 1 late in first half.

    Kind of wanted Albany to win by 40, rest up and give Florida a game (I can dream).

    That game was UGLY to start out with. Significantly better though before the half ended

    NCSU will beat absurdly over seeded Saint Louis in the next round, too.

    Pac12 NIT action: Utah led for the first 36 minutes at St. Mary's but let it slip away in the final few minutes. Disappointing end to the season for the Utes, but an NIT appearance was big for that program.

    Nice job by Albany and NCSU on making the NCAA tournament last night

    To all the people that thought the utes belonged in the big dance, please see above score.
    They didnt belong this year, next year though, I wouldnt want to play them anywhere.

    Using NIT results to prove if someone is worthy of the dance is always a mistake. There are always good teams that lose in the first round of the NIT because they just don't care. Arizona two years ago losing to Bucknell immediately comes to mind.

    Agree for the most part, it's like bowl games other than the national championship and to a lesser extent, the other BCS ones. I think some teams just show up to play and others don't.

    Utah got a bit screwed with the NIT seeding. They were a 5 seed and thus had to start on the road immediately

    Does the top of Mike Davis' resume say, "From the Final Four to the First Four?"

    Cal Poly sure found something last week. Knocking off UCSB and UCI back-to-back at a neutral site would be a challenge for a lot of power conference teams. One of the most bizarre flips of a team's performance level I have ever seen. UCSB absolutely crushed them about a week before the conference tourney started, iirc.

    Let's hope the Vols' current performance is a sign of the SEC being god awful

    Haha.

    They won an OT play-in game against a team that probably didn't belong in the tournament. Impressive.

    We are going to need some new bed sheets sent to iowa city, IA.

    what a bunch of bed shi.tters - I cant believe this was the same team that people thought deserved a 3/4 seed a month ago.

    So Craig Robinson won't be hoisting the Craig Robinson Trophy this year? Disappointing. #ConferenceOfCBIChampions

    Listened to a podcast last night with Alan Boston (gambling nerds know who he is), he had Iowa in his top 12 on his rating system. I figured Boston must've lost a lot of money in the last 6 weeks.
