2019 Championship “Week” Update: March 5th

We leave the A-Sun behind to look at the start of the Big South, Horizon League, and Patriot League tournaments.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Wright State vs Tennessee
Loudon Love leads Horizon League top seed Wright State in scoring and rebounding.

Because these first few tournaments to start are playing all of their games (or at least their early round game) on campus locations, we’re skipping around a wee bit. The Atlantic Sun got us started yesterday (shouts to North Florida, Liberty, NJIT, and Lipscomb), but they won’t be back in action until Thursday with semifinal action. Today we move on to the first day of action in the Big South, Horizon League, and Patriot League tournaments. The Horizon will be back on the list tomorrow as this isn’t all of their quarterfinal games, but the other two will be off until Thursday as well.

What will tomorrow hold? THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW. Or I’m just being intentionally mysterious for no reason.

All times Central.
