TOURNEY WATCH: 3/23/2010

New, 9 comments

I'm sure only three people actually watched the game, but man, was there ever some overtime craziness in the CBI on Monday night.

Of the four games, three went to overtime and two of those went to double overtime. IUPUI fell at home to Princeton and its notorious offense in one of the double OT games, while Boston U. was able to survive and advance in just one overtime period.

Meanwhile, Dayton whooped Cincinnati on its home court to advance to the "Elite Eight" of the NIT. Where was this when it mattered in the regular season, Flyers?

(And for my fellow Big East bashers: Connecticut's train wreck of a season finally met an end at the hands of the mediocre Virginia Tech Hokies. About time.)
