Dead or Alive 3/3

Only lost two more teams on Monday.  That will be the lowest total until Selection Sunday, that's for sure.  The teams that bit the dust on Monday were Navy and Loyola, MD of the Patriot League.  That gives us 30 dead teams and 321 still alive.  Here again is your list...

AMERICA EAST - Massachusetts Lowell
ATLANTIC SUN - Northern Kentucky, Kennesaw State
CONFERENCE USA - Florida International
WAC - Grand Canyon
SOUTHLAND - Incarnate Word, Abilene Christian, New Orleans, Houston Baptist, Lamar
SUMMIT - Nebraska-Omaha
SWAC - Mississippi Valley State, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Grambling State
IVY - Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton, Pennsylvania, Brown, Columbia
BIG SKY - Southern Utah
OHIO VALLEY - Tennessee State, Tennessee-Martin, Jacksonville State, Austin Peay
NORTHEAST - Sacred Heart, LIU Brooklyn
PATRIOT - Navy, Loyola (MD)

Two more conferences will get started on Tuesday.  The Atlantic Sun Conference will be a dog fight with Mercer and Florida Gulf Coast dominating the league all year.  Can FGCU get back to the dance to make another run?  In the Midwest the Horizon League will get going.  Green Bay has been the top team all year and they actually have an outside shot of getting an at large bid if they were to lose in the final.  The chances of them getting that bid is very small so they better take care of business in the tourney.  Only 13 days until Selection Sunday, getting closer.  I just purchased my tickets to the Opening Round games on Tuesday, should be a good time.  Anyone else going?  Thanks for reading.
