College Basketball Championship Week: March 4 results, March 5 schedule

Austin Peay continues their miracle run. Today, it either ends... or results in an NCAA bid.

These guys look a little excited.
These guys look a little excited.
Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Every year, we're teased by this sort of thing. It's almost like Lucy telling Charlie Brown she really truly won't yank the ball away this time. But sometimes, you really just seem to feel it. That may be the case for the Governors of Austin Peay, led by a blossoming talent and playing for the cancer-ridden granddaughter of their venerable head coach.

Chris Horton continued to emerge from his cocoon, erupting for 30 points to lead the Governors to an overtime upset of the Ohio Valley's number one seed. Belmont's one of those mid-majors you're just used to seeing in the NCAA tournament, but now they're probably looking at the NIT.

Isn't college basketball great?

Meanwhile, another of the Forgotten Five will remain there another year. The Citadel fell to the SoCon's top seed, Mercer, by failing to hit the final shot.

Isn't college basketball horrible?

Yesterday's Men's Results

Friday was actually a quiet night on the upset front, with Austin Peay scoring the only major surprise. Indiana State, the sixth seed in the Missouri Valley, did get past third-seeded Illinois State, and another 6-3 upset occurred in the Big South with Gardner-Webb beating Coastal Carolina (and officially sending the Chanticleers off to the Sun Belt). The only other "upset" was Drexel over Elon, and an 8-9 upset isn't really much of one.

Yesterday's Women's Results

It was a busy, busy day on the women's side, as most of the major conferences saw quarterfinal action and several other conferences got underway. Among the big results: 12th-seeded Northwestern shocked fourth seed Indiana in the Big Ten, the Pac-12 will have a ten-seed in the semifinals after California knocked off the second-seeded Sun Devils, Tennessee got past Texas A&M in a 2-7 game in the SEC, and both games in the Big 12 were upsets last night.

That's right, Kansas finally beat a Big 12 team. Yay, Kansas! Grape job!

Kelsey Mitchell set a Big 10 Tournament record with her 43 points in Ohio State's rout of Rutgers, and Murray State had to deal with the indignity of being clowned by an opposing player named Murray. Shameekia Murray dropped 24 on the Racers as Eastern Kentucky advanced to the Ohio Valley semifinals.

Today's Men's Schedule

We welcome the Horizon League and Summit League to the party today, and we'll also learn the identity of this season's first -- or second, if Yale wins today -- automatic bid holder when Austin Peay faces Tennessee-Martin for the OVC title. (You should probably be aware that our own Luke Thompson used to be the beat writer at Peay, so he might be a little excited tonight.)

The most interesting game on the slate tonight otherwise is probably Wichita State-Northern Iowa in the Missouri Valley. Of course, most folks will be more concerned with the end of the regular season in the big conferences -- including the Big 12. The schedule:
