3/7 recap

CAA finals:
UNC-Wilmington 80, Hofstra 73 (OT) - I wouldn't be surprised if Hofstra shows up on a last 4 out list from the committee, just as a token salute to the CAA as a whole this year

MAAC finals:
Iona 79, Monmouth 76 - great, bubble discussion with Monmouth.  I'm already sick of it.  This is going to be a fun week

SoCon finals:
Chattanooga 73, East Tennessee St 67 - yay, all my Chattanooga at-large talk throughout the year gets erased!

WCC semifinals:
St Mary's 81, Pepperdine 66
Gonzaga 88, BYU 84 - while everyone else messed around, the two bubble teams here keep their nose clean.  Other bubble teams' rooting interest?  Cede the bid to St Mary's and root against Gonzaga

Summit semifinals:
North Dakota St 69, IPFW 68 - 1 seed down.  Might not be a NIT bid poaching situation is South Dakota St beats NDSU though, because SDSU is a probable NIT at-large team
South Dakota St 54, Denver 53

Horizon semifinals:
Green Bay 99, Valparaiso 92 (OT) - Valpo to the at-large board.  Worst case scenario for them is Monmouth and Wichita are already on that board, and Valpo doesn't compare well to them. Valpo kinda needs to be the lone mid-major on that board against the upper majors to have a chance, because they trail a couple other mid-majors
Wright St 59, Oakland 55 - oh and there goes the 2 seed too.  This might be a brutal seed for the conference next week

A-East semifinals:
Stony Brook 80, Hartford 64
Vermont 63, New Hampshire 56

MAC first round:
Bowling Green 70, Kent St 69
Miami(OH) 49, Ball St 47
Eastern Michigan 69, Toledo 60
Northern Illinois 56, Western Michigan 50

MEAC first round:
Savannah St 63, Delaware 58
Coppin St 98, North Carolina A&T 91 (2OT)
