Some of the college basketball conference tournaments get started this weekend. 'Motor City Madness', the Horizon League's tournaments for men and women, take place this weekend in Detroit. My alma mater, Wright State, is seeded #2 in the men's bracket and #3 in the women's tourney.

OK, I goofed. Wright State vs. Cleveland State (on the women's side) is SUNDAY at noon.

Edit: here's the schedule. https://horizonleague.com/tournaments/?id=2

Wright State men beat Green Bay last night, and the women just finished off Cleveland State.

We do have one upset in the men's bracket - 8th seed Cleveland State beat the #1 seed Northern Kentucky last night.

Wright State men's and women's teams both advanced to their respective championship games.

The women play Green Bay today at noon, and the men face Cleveland State (the #8 seed, with 22 losses!) this evening at 7. (Eastern time)
