RPI WATCH: 3/14/2010

Three K-State opponents fell short in their conference tournament's final game — Boston U., UNLV and Xavier.

The latter two probably will make it in as at-large teams, but the former is out of luck. Life's tough in the one-bid leagues and, unfortunately for the Terriers, the Vermont program appears to be back.

But how's this for a silver lining? The Golden Lions are dancing!

That's right — the sad little SWAC team that started its season 0-11, had never made a conference final and never has been to the NCAA Tournament (hell, UAPB only became Division I a few years ago) now likely will appear in the play-in game at Dayton on Tuesday.

So at least someone was happy last night...
