Dead or Alive 3/7

Friday gave us a first, we got our first ticket punched to the dance.  The Harvard Crimson clinched the Ivy League.  Only 67 spots left to fill in the next nine days. On the other side we lost 17 more teams on Friday. The total deceased is now at 81 with only 270 remaining in the hunt.  Here are the teams that lost it last night...

MISSOURI VALLEY - Illinois State, Loyola (IL), Northern Iowa, Evansville
SOUTHERN - UNC Greensboro, Appalachian State, Furman
BIG SOUTH - Charleston Southern, Gardner Webb, High Point, Radford
HORIZON - Oakland, Valparaiso
COLONIAL - UNC Wilmington
IVY - Yale
OHIO VALLEY - Morehead State, Murray State

And to make it official, here are the teams that received an auto bid...

IVY - Harvard

Schools.      351
Dead.            81
Alive.          270
Auto.              1
Lock.              0
Zombie.          0

Two more conferences get started on Saturday, we got the Summit League and the America East. North Dakota State and Vermont are the favorites in those conferences. We also have our first conference final on Saturday. The Ohio Valley Conference will have Eastern Kentucky vs. Belmont, both teams looked really good last night. Both teams can score it up, should be a really good game. Let's not forget about the non tourney games going on Saturday, some really good ones to watch, should be a fun day.  Thanks for reading.
