Last night was the quietest night we'll have in this space until after the women's Elite Eight. Only two games were played, the opening salvo in the CIT. But today we've got a good slate of action in store, including the official beginning of the Real Thing as we get two play-in games in Dayton. While we didn't get a day without any men's games, today will be the second day in a row without any women's action; the WNIT and WBI begin tomorrow night.

Monday's Men's Results

Say one thing for the CIT's opening pair of games: they weren't boring. Sam Houston State erased a 21-point deficit to drag Jackson State into overtime. The Tigers righted the ship in the extra session to notch a four-point win, but the Bearkats played a heck of a half of basketball to get there. Later, in the John McClendon Classic, Dan Majerle's Grand Canyon Antelopes finally earned their first Division I post-season win, staying ahead of South Carolina State for nearly the entire game -- but never so far ahead that they weren't catchable.

Tuesday's Men's Schedule

Most of us will, of course, be focused on the two games in Dayton tonight. But in the NIT tonight Valparaiso and Saint Mary's are in action, and we've also got the bitter rematch between Creighton and Alabama. The Tide are looking for revenge after the Bluejays bounced them from the NCAA Tournament a few years ago. And yes, two-seed Florida really is playing at seventh-seeded North Florida, because the O'Connell Center is unavailable due to renovations which were scheduled to begin immediately after the conclusion of the regular season. The CBI also features an interesting matchup of strong mid-major programs as Mercer visits Coastal Carolina.
