As is usually the case with the opening days of Championship “Week,” we’re going to be skipping around a bit. The Atlantic Sun plays all of their games in the gym of the higher seeded team in the game, so they have to take a couple of days off in between games. The Patriot League handles things the exact same way, so they’ll be popping in and out over the next week after getting started today, and the Big South starts off at campus sites before moving to the gym of the #1 seed, which is Winthrop this year.
