Congratulations are in order for CAA champs Northeastern, SoCon champs Wofford, and MAAC champs Manhattan. Sadly, the CAA and the SoCon did not have the champs that everyone actually wanted as "never been there" William & Mary and 11-22 Furman were the teams that lost those two games. Would have been fun to go the other way on both of those games.
Today, we'll have another four automatic bids handed out, and the ACC starts their party because they have to take five damn days to crown a champion. The good news is that we get daytime basketball in the ACC tourney, the bad news is that the teams involved are a combined 47-75.
All times are Central, so go have some fun out there.
