The most important item of the day: Xavier winning. That means an Elite 8 appearance for the Big East, and it means another NCAA tournament unit paycheck for the conference, too. We could use both the publicity and the money, so that's a positive all around.
Item #2: Wisconsin losing. That's pretty self-explanatory.
Extra credit: Notre Dame losing, which is also pretty self explanatory.
I don't really care one way or the other who wins the West Virginia-Kentucky game, but let's be honest: it'd be kind of fun if Bob Huggins shut down the Wildcats the same way his Mountaineers stopped the Kentucky team led by John Wall & DeMarcus Cousins.
