Cheers for Dayton, which blasted No. 1 seed Illinois on its home court to advance to Madison Square Garden. If you haven't been paying attention to the NIT (and who has, really?), the "Final Four" consists of Dayton, Mississippi, North Carolina and Rhode Island.

Pretty good representation by the A-10, and by K-State opponents, as well.

Jeers for Boston University, which saw its season come to an end in an ugly road loss to VCU in the CBI. (More acronyms than you can shake a stick at!) The Terriers finished the season with a .600 record, far below what their preseason expectations were.

Obviously, basketball action continues tonight with the resumption of the only tournament anyone really cares about.
