3/4 recap

Cincinnati 62, @Wichita St 61 - at the death of the regular season, Cincy with a Group 0 win as I like to call it.  Throw them in the discussion for the 3 line
@Houston 81, UConn 71 - by the way, shoutout to the AAC.  Every other conference finished their regular season by yesterday, but the AAC are rebels
@Tulsa 76, Temple 58 - one final death blow to Temple; and a NIT bubble game for Tulsa.  Memphis and UCF also won, but are probably out of time to make a NIT run

B1G final:
Michigan 75, Purdue 66 - yeesh.  Now what do we do with Michigan's seed.  3 line?  But that's where I was going to put both Purdue and MSU, and now I run out of space for other teams.  At least one of these B1G teams is going to the 4 line, and you could make arguments for any of the 3 to wind up there.  This is going to be worthy of a lot of analysis over the next week, and I guarantee I'll change my mind a few times

MVC final:
Loyola(Chi) 65, Illinois St 49 - this does take away one looming bubble hot topic for the next week.  This is a great example of a team that might get bumped to an 11 or even a 10 seed during the seeding process, even though they wouldn't have been an at-large team

A-Sun final:
Lipscomb 108, FGCU 96
