Games of the Day

Creighton v. Wichita State
If Creighton makes the MVC finals, they're probably in the tourney whether they win or not.  But the MVC seems all about parity these days, and no upset there would surprise me.

College of Charleston v. UNC-Greensboro
Charleston beat Davidson a few weeks ago, and if Davidson doesn't win the SoCon tourney, that's another team occupying a bubble slot (though conventional wisdom seems to have turned against them).  All the major conference teams should be rooting for the 5-24 UNCG Spartans to knock out a team that could knock out the Fightin' Steph Currys.  Won't happen, but go ahead and root for it.
