Courtside: Greenberg and Dakich reflect on the end of the regular season. Plus, Joe Lundari

The madness is upon us. Seth Greenberg and Dan Dakich tip off the podcast discussing Utah State's upset of San Diego State, Bradley punching its ticket to the dance, Florida's meltdown against Kentucky and the incredible environment at Dayton. Then, Joe Lunardi joins the pod (19:37) to talk about the drama with Archie Miller, why the bubble is going to live in the Pac-12 and the American conference tournaments, rewarding winning over mediocrity, and East Tennessee possibly being this year's Belmont. Finally, the guys close by giving their thoughts on Penn State, Auburn, Seton Hall, Michigan State, Baylor, Michigan, Gonzaga, BYU and Villanova ahead of the postseason (43:57).
