Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover?

My alma mater, University of Iowa, failed to make the field of 68 on the men’s side, but the women’s squad earned a 6-seed and take on Creighton University Saturday. My beloved Vermont Catamounts men’s squad came one win shy of making the tournament but fell to University of Maryland-Baltimore County in the America East Championship game.
Nobody ever cares about who anyone else has in their respective brackets, so I’ll ask this: which March Madness moment is your favorite? Here’s mine (fast forward to the one minute mark for a classic Gus Johnson call):
