2019 Championship “Week” Update: March 14th

It’s Quarterfinal Day in a lot of places, and that means SO MUCH DAYTIME BASKETBALL!

NCAA Basketball: Miami (OH) at Buffalo
I think we’re all cheering for Buffalo and CJ Massinburg today.

Congrats to Colgate on snapping up the Patriot League title last night with a 94-80 win over Bucknell!

That ends our run of championship games, at least for today. However, today is Quarterfinal day in every single tournament that’s going to wrap up on Saturday, and that means we get DAYTIME BASKETBALL~! in THIRTEEN different leagues. That’s fun. Even more fun is the fact that the leagues and the television partners agreed on staggered start times. We’ve got some 11am starts, some 11:30am starts, and some noon starts. Starting at about 12:30pm Central time today, we’re going to start getting tournament games going down to the wire prrrrrrrrrretty much the entire rest of the day. That’s never a bad thing.
