We Now Join Saturday Of Championship Week Already In Progress

Holy crap, how early did they start the basketball today, anyway?

We already have two championship games underway: 1) Vermont leads Stony Brook just after halftime in the America East title game and 2) Memphis has a 6 point lead on Marshall with about 7 minutes left in the first half of the Conference USA title game.
