3.7 Championship Week Update

Let's start things off with a heartwarming picture from last night, shall we? Courtesy of our SB Nation Overlords:

That's the Western Kentucky mascot Big Red doing confetti angels after the Hilltoppers became the 16th team to qualify for the NCAA Tournament with a losing record. Western Kentucky fired their coach back in January and have gone 10-7 since then, including defeating Western Illinois 74-70 in the Sun Belt title game last night.

Or maybe he's just passed out drunk. Still awesome either way.

Congratulations are also in order for Detroit for winning the Horizon League tournament, South Dakota State for winning the Summit League tournament, and Harvard for clinching the Ivy League regular season title when Princeton defeated Penn last night.

Today we have three more automatic bids being handed out and five tournaments starting up! All kinds of crazy basketball action going on! Hit the jump for the full listing!
