On to the second half of the round of 64. We predicted the outcomes of all 16 games yesterday, going an unsatisfying 12-4.
The games that came out on the wrong side were Long Beach State, Wichita State, Connecticut and UNLV.
Hopefully day two goes a little better. But first, what was learned on the first day?
First of all, never, ever doubt VCU. That team almost seems to not know how to lose. Second, Syracuse and Baylor could be in a little trouble.
The most impressive performances were turned in by Marquette, Gonzaga and Colorado.
On to today's picks.
