First Thursday: Late Day/Early Evening

You would never know that Villanova was playing in Philadelphia, the way the fans are going crazy for American. And AU is playing amazing right now.

The entire early-evening session is shaping up as 4 close games, including this whopping upset brewing in Philly. Not just a 14 over a 3, but AU beating Nova in a virtual home game for VU.

Meanwhile, the afternoon was sort of a joke: Who made the decision to have two 1-seeds play at the same time? You might as well put 1-seeds at the No One Watches 5 p.m. game.

Maryland-Cal was interesting -- and, technically, an upset. (No more questions about Maryland's fitness as an at-large pick, right?) Purdue was mildly interesting, late. Good start for the Big Ten.

Tonight feels like it's going to be a fun one.

I was at both sessions in Greensboro and neither session was sold out. Did anyone in North Carolina get the memo that UNC and Duke are playing here?

I fully expect a packed house Saturday, as the two schools combine into one session. Moreover, I totally expect each school fans to be rooting for (Duke fans) LSU and (UNC fans) Texas. This should be entertaining!
