-some lose-and-you're-out games in the Big East (for UConn and Seton Hall) and the A-10 (for Dayton and St. Joseph's)
-Sun Belt Finals (North Texas vs. Western Kentucky - who fired their coach earlier this year)
-Horizon Finals (Valpo vs. Detroit - still hoping for a Bryce vs. Scott Drew first round NCAA matchup)
-a massive game in the Ivy (Penn vs. Princeton - to see if there will be a Harvard-Penn playoff).
-Summit League Finals (South Dakota St. vs. Western Illinois - noticeable lack of Oral Roberts in that one)
