DANCE CARDS PUNCHED

Atlantic Sun: EAST TENNESSEE STATE – The Bucs won the regular season championship last year, but stumbled in the tourney so this victory was even sweeter for Mr. Hinkman and the boys.

Big South: RADFORD – Seth’s brother is getting it done with the help of Belarus import 6-11 Artsiom Parakhouski.

Missouri Valley: NORTHERN IOWA – who knew Missouri even had a valley?

Ohio Valley: MOREHEAD STATE – we don’t want to belabor this but does Ohio have a valley? Is it an extension of the one that runs through Missouri? Geography people, speak up!

Southern: UT - CHATANOOGA – It’s the Mocs 10th NCAA tournament appearance. Last time in – 2005, they lost to Wake Forest.

Colonial Athletic Conference: VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH. Remember when they knocked of Duke? Is VCU the new George Mason?

The Summit League: NORTH DAKOTA STATE, because North Dakota University just isn’t big enough…

West Coast Conference: GONZAGA – perennial dark horse media darlings, the Zags defeated St. Mary’s and will be higher seeded than they should be (as usual).

Sun Belt: WESTERN KENTUCKY – The Hilltoppers created a Freeze Frame moment in last year’s tourney when Ty Rogers sank a desperation 3-point bomb over three defenders to beat Drake in the first round.

MAAC: SIENA – It’s Siena’s fifth trip dancing in recent years.
