This feels right:
Here are your three highlights for today:
- See You Next Week?: Six leagues -- the America East, Atlantic Sun, Big East, ECAC (the last one ever!), MAAC, and NEC -- will crown champions today. The six teams that win their respective conferences are assured of a position in the NCAA Tournament, which obviously means that the things that will happen today are things that are important and stuff. Action starts at 10:00 A.M., so get your oatmeal in your stomach before the Thompson Trio makes you wonder whether oatmeal is real or just your brain telling you that you're eating oatmeal.
- Johns Hopkins at Loyola: The Greyhounds are looking to increase their seed and the Blue Jays are seeking to lock up an at-large position in the field of 18. This is a local rivalry with national concerns, one that should feature a bonkers sell out crowd at Ridley.
- Army at Notre Dame // Navy at Maryland // Colgate at Syracuse // Duke at Boston University: The ACC unwinds its conference tournament participants from last week and spits them into the ether of year-end non-conference games. Army-Notre Dame is the best of this bunch, but Navy-Maryland and Colgate-Syracuse have potential for interesting play.
Here's Saturday'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).
