Pretty underwhelming day so far. Hopefully we get some nice finishes in the final games.

My wild prediction for tomorrow IF a crazy wild upset is to happen is #14 Iona over #3 Oregon. Oregon underperformed down the stretch with close wins to Cal (by 3) and Stanford (by 2). They then entered the Pac-12 tournament and were tied at half vs Arizona St, got an ugly win vs Cal that went right down to the wire and then lost in a competitive game to Arizona in the Pac-12 Championship. Now they've lost Chris Boucher (tho to their credit they competed well without him vs 'Zona) who is a major leader/piece of that team which could hurt them. Oregon is like 140th or so in FT%, if it's a close game late that could kill them.

Or they'll come out and blow the doors off Iona and win by 20... regardless, hoping day 2 is better than the opener.

Is Boucher really that big of a loss as everybody else seems to be making it? He had been relegated to reserve status because of the strong overall play of Jordan Bell.

I love Rhode Island to beat Creighton. Creighton struggled to the finish line following the loss of Maurice Watson, to an ACL injury.

Rhode Island, meanwhile, closed strong, getting healthier down the stretch and winning the Atlantic 10 conference tournament in convincing fashion. Rhode Island began the season in the top 25 and fell out after a few early losses to good teams.

Part of the struggles early on was due to the play of E.C. Matthews, who missed all of last season with an ACL injury.Matthews was just returning to form when the teamís best inside scorer and rebounder, Hassan Martin, got hurt and missed five games. So Creighton is an overrated No. 6 seed and Rhode Island is an underrated No. 11.

For underdogs today I like Oklahoma State +2.5 and Rhode Island +1.5.

TSN's online streams are killing me. I can never find the best game (ie. closest/latest game). I click TSN 1 - it takes me to TSN 4. I click TSN 3, it shows me TSN 1. I click TSN 5, it takes me to TSN 1.

Ridiculous. I can't get the Seton Hall Arkansas game right now. 2pt game in the second half. All the channels are showing the 10 pt 1st half game or highlights. It was like this all day yesterday too.

Had the right game for a few minutes. Now my choices are a 27 pt blowout or the first five minutes of another game. Bloody annoying.

TSN has five channels. The NCAA tournament is broadcast in America across four channels. It should be very easy for this to work...

Whicita v Dayton is a great game. With 8 minutes left it's 43-43. Go Shockers!

Right now:

Link for TSN 1 actually goes to 5.
TSN 2 goes to 4 (at least I found the MSU game).
TSN 4 goes to 5.
TSN3 goes to 3.
TSN5 goes to 5.

I'm sure 1 or 2 is mirroring another channel right now, but this is ridiculous.

This Wisconsin defense is legit.

They have Villanova befuddled...gonna take big effort from the Wildcats to find some offense...somewhere. Really lucky to only be down 4 at the half.

And yet another upset by a big 10 team as Michigan takes out Louisville.

This tourney is getting good and still a whack of interesting games to come today.

None moreso that Wichita St and Kentucky...should be a beauty.

Also a good chance at least one of the 2 remaining #11 seeds wins a game today and becomes cinderella along with Xavier.

Kentucky is falling in love with the 3 ball. They are tossing up back to back bricks from beyond in arc.

My bracket says thanks.

Some poor shot selection for WSU as well. The defense has been great, not at all surprised. I love this tournament so much.

Both teams have some fouls to give. The second half should be aggressive on both sides. This game is what march is all about.

Obviously should have been looking to take it to the rim at the end there and not settle for a 3. Tough loss for Wichita State.
