A possible Ivy League title game, Wichita State tries to stay unbeaten, and Daytime Basketball in three different conferences!

The most important game of the day is in the Ivy League. It's half of a league championship game, maybe three-quarters. If Harvard wins, they win the Ivy regular season title outright and earn the league's NCAA tournament spot. If Harvard loses to Yale, it opens the door to a tie, but that would still require Harvard to lose their final regular season game and Yale to win their final game, both of which will be tomorrow.

The second most important game of the day starts at noon, when Wichita State takes their perfect 31-0 regular season record into the postseason, specifically into Arch Madness. This is a concern, because Arch Madness is the kind of place where things like this happen:


Of course, because this is March Madness as well, Milton Doyle lifting Loyola-Chicago to a win over Bradley wasn't the only buzzer beater of the night. This one comes to us from the MAAC, where Desi Washington is #11 in white for Saint Peter's:


See, this is a bigger deal than you think. What you just watched was the THIRD TIME THIS SEASON that Desi Washington stuck a three point buzzer beater dagger into Fairfield THIS SEASON. Go check out CBSSports.com's Night Court from last night for the other two videos.
