I refuse to call the play-in games the first round.
Charles Barkley stated the Mountain West was better than the Big10 before the tourney started. 3/4 lost on the first day.
Off the top of my head …
Oregon upsets OkSt, proving that a 12 seed was ridiculous. Pac10 got no respect.
St Mary’s nearly got an athletic undisciplined Memphis team.
Michigan St is tough in March.
This St Louis team is solid.
Creighton held off Cincy, a bad matchup for the Bluejays.
Gonzaga barely held on, and if they play like that against Wichita St, they will lose.
SEC gets a win over Big10 as Wisconsin shoots 8% in second half.
LaSalle (Go Coach G) holds off a huge comeback from Weber’s K-state
Harvard outplays trendy pick New Mexico from wire to wire for their first ever NCAA tourney win.
VCU throttled someone.
Michigan coasted against Coach Nagy’s SDSU.
IU played like a #1 seed should.
Temple holds off NCState second half charge.
Cal as a 12 seed gets a home game and upsets UNLV.
Syracuse demolished Montana. Didn’t know they had a team.
Butler is solid.
Marquette was outplayed for 39 min and 30 seconds.
Illini beat Colorado in a game of huge streaks.
The U rolled wearing orange and yellow neon shoes.
3 games should be good tonight, NC vs Villanova, Minnesota vs UCLA, and Notre Dame vs Iowa State. But there will be an upset yet tonight.
I love the NCAA tourney.
