Each Monday at 4:00 p.m. Levack and I recap the weekend in a segment called "Monday Mirages." Does this team, player, performance having lasting power, or is it just a one-week mirage?

This week, I was back with Levack recapping a wild weekend packed with local sporting events, upsets, and more. We are now less than a week away from Selection Sunday and the NCAA tournament brackets be released.

The women's bracket is released on Monday. Was UAlbany women's basketball the biggest shock of the weekend? The Great Danes had won six straight conference tournaments. This is likely the first time the women's program will not play in the NCAA tournament since 2011. With all the attention on the men's teams over the weekend, a loss for the UAlbany women didn't even strike us as all that likely. Yet, here we are on Monday.

Plus was the victory by the Albany Great Danes lacrosse team a needed test against Cornell? What is real and what is a mirage? Are the Michigan Wolverines the team no one wants to face in the NCAA tournament?
