Welcome to the third full day of March Madness, and BN's open thread for the start of the Round of 32. After a tight start, the Bruins pulled away from a comfortable win over Tulsa and await Stephen F. Austin on Sunday afternoon. That was the last of another exciting set of games on Friday; hopefully we will get some of the same today.
Today's action begins with Florida taking on Jamie Dixon's Pitt Panthers at 9:15am Pacific time, followed by Louisville v. Saint Louis. Oregon plays the 2nd-seeded Wisconsin Badgers later in the afternoon, with Harvard v. Michigan State and Villanova v. UConn finishing today's set of games.
Remember that regardless of your TV service or which network is carrying a game, you can watch any NCAA Tournament game online via March Madness Live though your desktop/laptop browser or smartphone/tablet app. The complete schedule of today's games and TV carriers is posted below, and BN's full coverage of March Madness can be found here.
