Gulf Coast Showcase Semifinals ($) will stream all four games.


South Alabama Jaguars (4-2, Sun Belt) vs. Miami (Ohio) RedHawks (4-1, MAC), 5 p.m.
Wright State Raiders (5-1, Horizon) vs. La Salle Explorers (2-2, A 10), approx. 7:30 p.m.


Northeastern Huskies (3-3, CAA) vs. Drake Bulldogs (4-2, MVC), 11 a.m.
Weber State Wildcats (1-3, Big Sky) vs. Murray State Racers (3-2, OVC), approx. 1:30 p.m.


The two 2019 NCAA qualifiers in the field in Estero, Fla. fell in Monday’s quarterfinals, but neither has a straightforward consolation matchup in this afternoon’s doubleheader. Meanwhile, both the Sun Belt and Horizon favorites advances to the evening’s championship semifinal doubleheader, where a possible MAC contender and rebuilding Atlantic 10 team will await them, respectively.

Cayman Islands Classic Semifinals ($) will stream all four games.


New Mexico State Aggies (3-3, WAC) vs. South Florida Bulls (3-2, American), approx. 1:30 p.m.
George Mason Patriots (6-1, A 10) vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-2, Big Ten), approx. 7:30 p.m.


Colorado State Rams (3-3, MW) vs. Loyola Chicago Ramblers (3-3, MVC), 11 a.m.
Old Dominion Monarchs (3-3, C-USA) vs. Washington State Cougars (2-3, Pac-12), 5 p.m.


As for the two 2019 March Madness qualifiers in Grand Cayman, they split. New Mexico State needed OT to defeat Colorado State, while Old Dominion dropped its evening game against former CAA rival George Mason. In today’s semifinals, the Aggies will take on South Florida, who handled 2018 Final Four team Loyola with relative ease, while the Patriots get Nebraska, who breezed by Washington State in a matchup of two teams likely to rank as among the worst of the power conference crop this season.

NIT Season Tip-Off Orlando Subregional Finals

ESPNU will air both games.

Consolation: Western Michigan Broncos (4-3, MAC) vs. Seattle Redhawks (2-5, WAC), 12 p.m.
Championship: Yale Bulldogs (4-3, Ivy) vs. Bucknell Bison (3-4, Patriot), approx. 2:30 p.m.


Yale, 22-point victors over WMU on Monday afternoon, will look to confirm its favorites’ tag by taking down a Bucknell squad that slipped past Seattle by seven in their semifinal.

Cancun Challenge Semifinals

Mayan (Visitor) Division ($) will stream both games.

UT Martin Skyhawks (2-3, OVC) vs. Gardner-Webb Bulldogs (0-5, Big South), 12:30 p.m.
Boston University Terriers (3-3, Patriot) vs. Northern Colorado Bears (2-3, Big Sky), approx. 3 p.m.

Riviera (Host) Division

CBSSN will air both games.

Wichita State Shockers (5-0, American) vs. South Carolina Gamecocks (4-1, SEC), 6 p.m.
Northern Iowa Panthers (6-0, MVC) vs. West Virginia Mountaineers (4-0, Big 12), approx. 8:30 p.m.

()PDF Bracket)

The four Riviera Division teams went 7-1 in their on-campus games, with Boston University’s 78-70 win at South Carolina being the lone loss for the hosts. As a result, the Terriers enter the Mayan Division as the favorite to go 2-0. In the showcase semifinals, it would be a surprise if the championship game didn’t feature West Virginia and Wichita State—but what has this season been so far but not full of shock results?

Maui Jim Maui Invitational Semifinals


ESPN2 will air both games.

Georgia Bulldogs (4-1, SEC) vs. Michigan State Spartans (3-2, Big Ten), 2:30 p.m.
UCLA Bruins (4-2, Pac-12) vs. Chaminade Silverswords (2-1, DII, PacWest, host), approx. 5 p.m.


ESPN will air both games.

Dayton Flyers (4-0, A 10) vs. Virginia Tech Hokies (6-0, ACC), 8 p.m.
Kansas Jayhawks (4-1, Big 12) vs. BYU Cougars (4-2, WCC), approx. 10:30 p.m.

(PDF Bracket)

And thanks to one of the biggest surprises of the season so far, Virginia Tech’s 71-66 victory over Michigan State means we won’t get an anticipated Spartans-Kansas showdown in the final tomorrow afternoon. While the Jayhawks should be able to get past BYU in this evening’s nightcap (famous last words), the Hokies will be challenged by a Dayton team that blasted Georgia in Monday’s opener in Lahaina. As for the Bulldogs, they should expect pain against what’s likely to be an angry Michigan State squad in the first game of the Maui morning.

MGM Resorts Main Event Day 3

Middleweight (Visitors) Round-Robin

Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (4-2, Sun Belt) vs. UC Irvine Anteaters (3-4, Big West), 4 p.m. ( ($))

After taking down the Detroit Mercy Titans (1-4, Horizon) by an 81-62 score on Monday afternoon, Louisiana can go 2-0 in the Middleweight bracket by knocking off 2019’s Big West champs today.

Heavyweight (Host) Finals

Consolation: Wyoming Cowboys (3-4, MW) vs. TCU Horned Frogs (4-1, Big 12), 9 p.m. ( ($))
Championship: Colorado Buffaloes (4-0, Pac-12) vs. Clemson Tigers (5-1, ACC), approx. 11:30 p.m. (ESPN2)

Back on Sunday night, Colorado picked up an ugly 56-41 win over Wyoming in the first semifinal—a game that was tied at 15 at the half (seriously). Clemson, meanwhile, rallied to knock off TCU in the nightcap, 62-60 after overtime.

Don’t expect a lot of points tonight, in other words.

Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans Fort Myers Tip-Off Subregional Day 1

ESPN+ ($) will stream both games.

Caldwell Cougars (2-4, DII, CACC) vs. Norfolk State Spartans (3-3, MEAC), 5 p.m.
Radford Highlanders (2-3, Big South) at Monmouth Hawks (2-5, MAAC), approx. 7:30 p.m.

With the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions skipping out of this subregional, there won’t be an actual bracket for 2019. In fact, Radford will only play once in West Long Branch, N.J., against the host Hawks tonight.

Cayman Islands Classic Mainland Finals

Consolation: IUPUI Jaguars (2-4, Horizon) vs. Southern Jaguars (2-4, SWAC), 5:30 p.m.
Championship: Loyola (Md.) Greyhounds (3-23, Patriot) at Omaha Mavericks (4-3, Summit), approx. 8 p.m.

Loyola advanced to this evening’s final by slipping past IUPUI, 81-77, while host Omaha cruised past Southern, 78-51, in Monday’s second semifinal.

Roman Legends Classic Presented by Old Trapper Finals

Consolation: Wisconsin Badgers (4-2, Big Ten) vs. New Mexico Lobos (5-2, MW), 5 p.m. (ESPNU)
Championship: Richmond Spiders (5-0, A 10) vs. Auburn Tigers (6-0, SEC), approx. 7:30 p.m. (ESPN2)

(PDF Schedule)

The Lahaina Civic Center wasn’t the only venue to see an upset involving a Big Ten team on Monday night, as Richmond knocked off Wisconsin, 62-52, with the normally uptempo Spiders showing that their offense can be just as efficient at a slower pace. Chris Mooney’s squad will face a completely different challenge tonight; however, as Auburn not only plays uptempo, but the Tigers have been wrecking teams in this event. Monday’s 84-59 win over New Mexico was Auburn’s third straight by at least 25 points.

Hall Of Fame Classic Powered by ShotTracker Finals

Consolation: Missouri Tigers (4-2, SEC) vs. Oklahoma Sooners (5-1, Big 12), 7 p.m. (ESPN News)
Championship: Butler Bulldogs (6-0, Big East) vs. Stanford Cardinal (7-0, Pac-12), approx. 9:30 p.m. (ESPN2)

Butler had a relatively easy time with Missouri in a semi-road situation in Kansas City on Monday night, taking down the Tigers 63-52 to advance to tonight’s final against ... Stanford? The Cardinal headed to Sprint Center as a bit of a mystery, thanks to six straight home wins, but Jerod Haase’s club impressively crushed Oklahoma, 73-54, in their first non-Maples matchup of the season.

Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis Mainland Day 1

Furman Paladins (5-1, SoCon) at Elon Phoenix (2-4, CAA), 7 p.m. ( ($))

The UT Arlington Mavericks (3-3, Sun Belt) sit the first night out. They’ll take on Furman tomorrow in a non-streamed matchup. As for this evening, a pair of former SoCon rivals meet on the home court of the current CAA member Phoenix. The hosts have yet to win a game against a D1 opponent, while the Paladins opened their season with three straight D1 victories.

Roman Legends Classic Presented by Old Trapper Subregional Day 3

Colgate Raiders (3-3, Patriot) at Green Bay Phoenix (2-3, Horizon), 8 p.m. ( ($))

The CSUN Matadors (0-6, Big West) leave Wisconsin still winless, but at least they pushed host Green Bay last night, falling by just one, 85-84. Tonight, the Phoenix will look to claim the subregional title by topping the 2019 Patriot champs.
