NCAA Tournament Second Round Open Thread

Launch MMOD Player

Half of your Sweet 16 will be decided by day's end. CBS has divided its telecast into quarters on Saturday: one game for the entire nation to start, then two games, then three games, and finally two games in primetime.

Friday didn't produce nearly as many upsets as did Thursday. Overall, ten lower seeded teams advanced to the second round: (14) Ohio, (13) Murray State, (12) Cornell, (11) Old Dominion, (11) Washington, (10) St Mary's, (10) Missouri, (10) Georgia Tech, (9) Wake Forest, and (9) Northern Iowa.

Today, I'll take Ohio and Washington to move into the Sweet 16 as double digits seeds, and I won't be shocked if St. Mary's, Murray State, or BYU pull off upsets either.
