3.9 Championship "Week" Watch

New, comments

Three new bids being handed out today, but the one that you're interested in is over in the Missouri Valley...

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

We had two #1 seeds fall yesterday.  Belmont lost the Ohio Valley title game to Eastern Kentucky, and Green Bay lost to Milwaukee in the Horizon League semifinals.  That means there are now just 30 open spots in the NIT.  Believe it or not, the Bracket Matrix guys put together some NIT bracketology, although they haven't started calculating for the regular season champions yet.

Three more teams - the Atlantic Sun champ, the Big South champ, and the Missouri Valley champ will join Harvard and Eastern Kentucky in the field of 68 by the time the day is over.

Here's your lineup for the day, and as always, all times are central.
