3.8 Championship "Week" Watch

New, 4 comments

Three new tournaments join the fray today...

Eric Francis

Today we get the start of the MAAC, Southern, and Sun Belt tournaments. I have a weird affinity for the Sun Belt tournament, because they play it in a building where there are two arenas, so they have two games going on at once. Very weird.

As you can see from reading the list, we're also getting to the point of Championship "Week" where most games are starting to be available via streaming somewhere. Today's outlier: the MAAC. GET IT TOGETHER, GUYS.

One last thing: we're including two games from the Ivy League here. They're not tournament games, as the Ivy does not play a tournament. But with three games left for Princeton and two games left for Harvard, they're the only two teams that can win the regular season title and therefore the automatic bid. Princeton currently has the lead at 9-2, while Harvard is a half game back at 9-3.
