Memphis up 50-36

SEC Semi Finals:

  • Ole Miss vs. Vanderbilt 3:30 ABC

ACC Semi Finals:

  • NC State vs. UNC 1pm ESPN/ESPN3

NC State is a bubble team

  • FL State vs. Duke 3:30pm ESPN/ESPN3

FL state is a 5/6 seed so we would like them to lose.

Big 10 Semi Finals:

  • Michigan St vs. Wisconsin 1:40pm CBS

Biggest game of the Day for us. We need Wisconsin to lose to retain our 3 seed.

  • Michigan vs. Ohio St. 4:05pm CBS

It would also benefit us for Michigan to lose to help retain the 3 seed.

Atlantic 10 Semi Finals:

  • Umass vs. St. Boneventure 1pm CBS College Sports
  • Xavier vs. St. Louis 3:30pm CBS College Sports

Xavier is a bubble team.

MEAC Championship:

Unfortunately Savannah St got upset early so will have to settle for the NIT.

Southland Championship

  • Lamar vs. McNeese St 3pm ESPN2

Great West Championship

  • NJIT vs. North Dakota 5pm

The Great West Champion does not receive an automatic berth to the NCAAs.

Big 12 Championship:

  • Missouri vs. Baylor 6pm ESPN/ESPN3

Baylor is probably safely ahead of us on the 3 line, but it can't hurt for them to lose.

Pac 12 Championship:

  • Arizona vs. Colorado 6pm CBS

I still believe the Pac 12 is a one bid conference

Mountain West Championship:

  • San Diego St vs. New Mexico 7pm NBC sports

Both teams are in the tournament. San Diego St unlikely to pass us but New Mexico is the safe pick for us.

MAC Championship:

  • Ohio vs. Akron 8pm ESPN2/ESPN3

Yup 1 win away from a Georgetown Tournament Loss Trifecta. akron is no slouch as they beat Miss St. earlier in the year.
