March Madness, Friday First Round Open Thread

Ahhhhhh, March is back and yesterday, it was back in a big way.The first four games of the day were decided by a combined 12 points and seven of those came in a double overtime game between Florida and BYU. Things didn't slow down with Murray St. taking down Vanderbilt and Ohio taking down Georgetown. Even the Pac-10 had itself a single decent moment with Washington taking down Marquette in a thriller. All in all, it was one of the most dramatic days of March Madness we've seen and that's pretty good considering the NCAA Tournament is built on drama.

Today, we open with a couple fun potential upsets in 12th seeded Cornell looking to topple fifth seeded Temple and 11th seeded Minnesota going after sixth ranked Xavier. The Pac-10's second team will take the court in the day's final day when Cal takes on Louisville at 6:45 pm PST. Sandwiched in between will surely be some fun with upsets, passion, tears and joy. It's why we love March. Once again, March Madness On-Demand has all the games online and you can grab it in the widget below. This is another March Madness open thread. Go nuts everyone.

 

Hop below the jump for the 15th anniversary of one of the greatest plays in UCLA tournament history. And yes, it's crazy to think that this was 15 years ago, but I don't think the memory has gotten any fuzzier in our minds.
