This feels right on a Sunday morning/afternoon:
Here are your highlights for today:
- UMBC at Binghamton: It's the most balanced game on Sunday's docket and the ramifications of the result are non-negligible: The Retrievers are attempting to build an America East Tournament resume that helps UMBC avoid Albany until the league tournament final; the Bearcats haven't been to the America East Tournament since the 2011 season (Binghamton crashed out of the tournament after falling to top-seeded Stony Brook in the semifinals). Today matters for both teams but in different ways, divergent motivations that create an atmosphere of "must crush skulls."
- Marquette at St. John's: The Johnnies' path to the Big East Tournament is neither guaranteed nor easy: St. John's has wins against Georgetown and Providence (the Red Storm lost to Rutgers), but the Johnnies still need to play Marquette (today), Denver (next weekend), and Villanova (the following weekend). The team's league slate is back loaded in terms of strength, and St. John's needs a win today against the Golden Eagles in order to establish head-to-head victories against the presumed bottom three finishers in the conference.
Here's Sunday's full schedule. If there are errors, please let me know. I'll fix/populate links to live stats and video as the day progresses (if necessary).

This is your open thread for Sunday. You could probably make big bucks making formal pajamawear. People will be around to yak about whatever is tickling their fancy.
