Games of the Day

Radford v. VMI, Jacksonville v. East Tennessee State, Austin Peay v. Morehead State
Clearly.  Winner dances.

Butler v. Wright State
Because if Wright State wins, there's one less bubble slot.

Creighton v. Illinois State
The Missouri Valley is so strange...all four higher seeds actually won last night, but it took last-second heroics for the #1 (UNI) and #2 (Creighton) to move on...especially Creighton.  Meanwhile, #3 and #4 won easily.  I think Creighton has an NCAA bid in their hands right now as long as they make the tourney finals...which means this is a pseudo win-and-in game for the Jays.
