Championship Week Video Notebook: Day 5, Friday

WELCOME SELECTION COMMITTEE MEMBERS!!  We are glad you’re here!!  That way we can tell you what you need to be doing!!

We saw several exciting games in the Big Ten with Michigan State barely holding on, and Rutgers taking Purdue down to the final minutes.  Penn State also beat Ohio State for the third time this year, and Michigan blew past Nebraska to set up a rematch with rival Michigan.

The Metro Atlantic completely collapsed with both Rider and Canisius losing in the quarterfinals.  We review that and debate whether or not they should restructure their tournament.

We saw four exciting games in the Missouri Valley, another upset in the Big South as UNC Asheville went down at home to Liberty, and opening round action in the SoCon, West Coast, and Horizon League.  We run through all that, update our SURVIVAL BOARD, and end with our nightly Notebook Trivia Question

And for you radio lovers, here is an audio file of the show…
