Friday NCAA Tournament Schedule and Television Info

Day two of the NCAA basketball tournament's round of 64 gets underway this afternoon, and we can only hope it's as instructive as day one. What did we learn on day one? Well among other things:

  • You can never count on Purdue. Including and especially if you're an actual Purdue fan.
  • Playing the Ivy League champion in round one is a no-win proposition. If they beat you you look bad, if you beat them you're still going to end up working for them.
  • Kentucky remains capable of ruining more feel-good stories than a hack director at the Hallmark Channel.
  • Tom Crean is the coach whose facial expressions best wordlessly express the sentiment "those clams may or may not have been a little past their prime. Oh dear."
So what's on the agenda for today? A lot more great basketball. The full schedule is below (now in a nifty table!). Of course, this is also the spot for any commentary on the action. Or your general Friday reverie. We run a pretty loose ship as the weekend beckons. Let's watch some bouncey hoops, people!
