Under The Radar Postseason News, Notes and Highlighted Games – Saturday, March 17th

Only one game was played last night below the radar – Central Michigan ended up beating Wofford 98-94 in the second round of the CIT. David DeLeo led the Chippewas with 22 points, and Kevin McKay had 21 for Central Michigan as well. Fletcher Magee also had a heroic effort for the Terriers with 37 points, but it was not meant to be for Wofford last night. CMU’s next opponent will be determined upon completion of other games in the 2nd round.


-NEBRASKA WESLEYAN VS. WISCONSIN-OSHKOSH (6:00 PM, CBS Sports Network). As requested by our season-long UTR guru Chad Sherwood, tonight will be the first NCAA Championship that will be decided in Salem, Virginia. Even more remarkable is that neither team played a game at home in the NCAA Tournament (where there are host sites selected by the top 16 teams in the first 2 rounds and the highest remaining seeds in the regionals).


(4) PENN STATE AT (1) NOTRE DAME (12:00 PM, ESPN). We get a rarity in that both the men’s and women’s teams for Notre Dame will play at home on St. Patrick’s Day, but that is what will happen while the women’s team is hosting a subregional in the NCAA Tournament and Notre Dame attempts to follow up their home win against Hampton with a noontime matinee against Penn State. The Nittany Lions are coming off of a home win against in-state foe Temple back on Wednesday.


-PORTLAND STATE AT SAN DIEGO (10:00 PM, CBS Digital Network). While Portland State was one of 4 teams that were added late to the tournament, San Diego is coming off of a home win on Monday night against Hartford in the 1st round in the Riley Wallace Classic.
