Pretty much going to form right now. Anybody watching?

Yale/Baylor has been a very exciting game. 5 could beat 12 here.

Makai Mason with Yale NCAA scoring record (30?).

Taurean Prince looks like someone for either our 2nd or third pick.

UConn came back earlier to win.

Just watched the last 5 minutes of Yale/Baylor.  That set basketball back years between Yale's inability to figure out a full court press & Baylor's just general stupidity.   That's why I'll take NBA over NCAA every day of the week.

Would love see Holy Cross shock the world tomm night & become the first 16 seed to beat a 1 seed.

Me too...and Tommy would be out of his mind. I'd pay to see him react if they ever won.

Baylor game was a mess, but I like Taurean Prince.  Every team in the NBA can use guys like that.

I just realized that in the one bracket where I had Yale winning, I accidentally chose IONA instead of IOWA st. That might be the difference between a perfect first day and a failure lol
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

I'm definitely starting to regret my Little Rock pick. They really cannot shoot to save their lives.

This Purdue game is something else.  Double OT now.

Purdue's coach can't coach.

Wow. How he allowed a 15-3 run against his team is beyond me. And then his best player, AJ Hammons, could not even get a touch.

Ha ha.

Nice! I'm the only one that had Little Rock in our pool, this is indeed a huge win for both our brackets.

I missed out on Yale, but no one else picked them either, so as far as I know, I'm one up. Thank you for your resilience, Little Rock.

Hammons looked kinda passive, kinda like "eh, I don't really care". Is he always like that or was it just bc he wasn't getting the ball/Purdue lost its lead?

Oh wow.

Too early to tell but there's a big #16 scare coming from Raleigh.

Florida Gulf Coast is giving North Carolina all it can handle. Only down 1 at halftime.

Could this be the year?

Wow, Providence wins it at the last second after getting screwed with horrible calls the last several minutes of the game.

Oh man.

I feel bad for USC, but Providence and that great baseline out of bounds poise was just brilliant.

I love the Tournament. That's two great games we saw today. And theres more!!!

So, on that last play by Providence, it appeared to me like the inbounds pass might have bounced right off the end line before landing in Bullock's hand.

If that were the case, wouldn't that be an out of bounds turnover?  Haven't heard any of the talking heads mention it.
