Recapping Sunday, Previewing Monday

The main highlight of Sunday was the start of the "regional" rounds for the CBE Classic.  Three of the four regional hosts opened play, and two won easily.  Texas blew past overmatched UC Irvine, 89-42.  Wichita State defeated Fairleigh Dickinson, 80-64, in a game that wasn't as close as the score indicates.  Things weren't so rosy for the Big Ten's entrant in the event, as Iowa dropped a home game to UT-San Antonio, 62-50.

In other action, sixth-ranked North Carolina had a tougher time than anticipated against Valparaiso, winning by only 11. No. 8 West Virginia had no problem with Loyola (Md.), triumphing 83-60 in Morgantown.  Florida defeated Stetson, 74-46, in a game where the only drama involved whether the Gators would keep their three-point streak alive.  (They did, just, thanks to Chandler Parsons in the final minute.

In other games of note,

Monday's TV schedule after the jump.
