While most of the country was focused on the NCAA Tournament yesterday, we did finally see Georgia fill their head coaching vacancy. Tom Crean will formally be announced as their new head coach later this afternoon. Kermit Davis was also formally named head coach at Ole Miss, although he will finish out his season at Middle Tennessee as the Blue Raiders are still alive in the NIT.
There was one game played in the CIT last night – Austin Peay defeated Louisiana-Monroe 80-66 in the John McLendon Classic to advance to the quarterfinals to the CIT next week. Averyl Ugba led the Governors with 27 points; Terry Taylor also had a double-double with 11 points and 15 rebounds. Austin Peay is now 4-0 all-time at home in postseason play.
CIT (2nd Round)
-CENTRAL MICHIGAN AT WOFFORD (7:00 PM, CBS Digital Network) – The Terriers were a late entry into the CIT field, but are nonetheless worthy of inclusion considering their hot finish in the SoCon and notable win at North Carolina back in December. Central Michigan already has a win in the CIT under their belts thanks to a 5-point win at Fort Wayne back on Monday.
