Another doubleheader of action from Dayton tonight....

I wasn't really aware that Tulsa actually had a mascot.

Congrats to Wichita State and Florida Gulf Coast as they advance to the first round of the NCAA tournament.  Congrats are also in order for our friends down at Creighton, as they won their NIT first round game against Alabama.

We've got the other doubleheader from Dayton tonight, including the appearance of the sub-.500 Crusaders of Holy Cross, as well as Tulsa, the very last team admitted into the field.  If these two games get a little snoozy, there's seven NIT games going on, although three of them are only on WatchESPN.

KenPom has Southern as the favorite in the first game, with a 61% chance of victory, while Michigan has a 51% chance of defeating Tulsa.
