Mission: Accomplised (Sort of)

There are some more teams that need certificates of accomplishment today.

First, these clubs have secured the 1-seeds in their conference tournaments:

America East: Vermont
Mid-Continent: Oral Roberts
Northeast: Central Connecticut State
Ohio Valley: Austin Peay
Sun Belt: South Alabama

Congratulations to all of these clubs. There are a smattering of other seeds that have been secured as well. You can see them all in the updated One Stop Shop.

Also, in addition to last weeks LOCKS, these teams also have done enough:

North Carolina, Kansas, Texas A&M, Southern Illinois

View the updated Lockbox for more. The Lockbox will be updated almost daily from here on out.

A full Bubble Boy update is coming tomorrow. It should be expansive.

Last Night's GOI
--Kansas 71, at Kansas State 62. It had all the makings, Blackout Bramlage on ESPN and all, but K-State could not stay in front of Sherron Collins. That will be a problem for many future teams as well.
--at Marquette 80, Villanova 67. Golden Eagles break their skid; Nova falls under .500 in Big East.

Tonight's GOI
--Northern Iowa at Bradley. Braves are in must win mode.
--LSU at Kentucky. Cats need to stop their 3-game slide.
--Wisconsin at Michigan State. It simply does not get bigger for Bubbly Spartans.
--DePaul and Notre Dame. DePaul needs it more, but ND is not safe either.
--West Virginia at Providence. WVU is in better shape; this is probably a must win for the Friars.
--Texas Tech at Texas. Roller coaster Raiders need consistency down the stretch.
--Air Force at UNLV. Both chasing BYU and jockeying for Mt West/NCAA seeding.
--Missouri State at Wichita State. Bears have to have it.
