2014 NCAA Women's Tournament, CBI finals, WNIT: 3/31 TV Schedule

The Saints have come close before, but they've never captured a post-season title. - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Our long cold week without NCAA Men's Tournament action begins, with only three televised game this evening.

Countdown: 23 (or 24). The only men's basketball game tonight is one of the two which will determine whether we can stop qualifying the countdown; over on the women's side there are four games as both the NCAA Tournament and WNIT fill half their Final Fours. If you're inclined to partake of tonight's contests, here's your open thread.

Game 1 9:00pm (E1) Siena vs (S3) Fresno State Fresno CA CBSSN PBP: Scott Graham

I remember once upon a time when Siena was the biggest story in March. There'd been an outbreak of some virulent crud or another, and the America East tournament had to be played in an empty arena, and Siena came out on top. I think they knocked someone off in the first round of the Big Dance, too. For all that, winning the CIT would be the program's high-water mark, surpassing that year they made the NIT Final Four and Doremus Bennerman dumped 51 on the 'Cats in an unforgettable one-on-two duel with Askia Jones and Deryl Cunningham. I don't hold that against them and neither should you; I mean, it was just the third-place game.

Personally, I can't root for any of these four teams, but the average neutral fan should have no trouble picking a side tonight, and it's almost certainly going to be "Baylor and A&M" or "Notre Dame and UConn". The choice will depend on whether you're an underdog supporter or whether you're cheering for the "and-0" crowd. From the midwest perspective both Baylor and Texas A&M have been forces of nature for some time, and while neither was in any danger whatsoever of having a 40-0 season this year, they were still not teams you wanted next up on your schedule. Can one (or both) of them be the team to finally solve one (or both) of the unbeatens?
