Here are your highlights for today:
- Marquette at Notre Dame: Math doesn't like this spot much for Marquette -- the Massey ratings only give the Eagles a four percent win probability today with a mean margin of defeat of over seven goals -- and the Irish's rage over the last few weeks supports math's position. If Marquette is going to drop Notre Dame at Arlotta today it's going to take a massive effort from the Eagles, one that surpasses the kind of performances that Marquette has exhibited throughout the year. Throwing hands with the meanest son of a bitch in the room requires a heightened degree of strength and power, and toppling the Irish in South Bend necessitates some kind of insanity that the Eagles haven't quite touched yet this season.
- Harvard at Boston University: A Terriers win wouldn't be an upset as much as a light 'dog bagging a kill against a neighbor. The Crimson are coming off of a bonkers and seemingly impossible victory against Cornell this past weekend and need to watch their six if they hope to string together consecutive wins after suffering through a painful four-game losing streak that stretched over the last half of March. This is a good spot for Boston University and the game could provide some evening heat.
- Marist at Hofstra: This thing could go sideways in a hurry. There isn't necessarily a "better" in this game as much as there's a "they will play each other." These kinds of late season nonconference games between somewhat ignored teams are often great fun, if only because there isn't a governor on the engine and things are allowed to spin out of control as fast as possible.

This is your open thread for Tuesday. I rooted for the rims last night. People will be around to yak about whatever is tickling their fancy. Also, if you haven't yet, give a "like" to College Crosse over on Facebook and make sure to give a follow @SexyTimeLax on the Twitter machine.
