Day one of March Madness is like Christmas day for college basketball fans: tons of presents and surprises that sometimes make you ecstatic and sometimes make you cry.
For half of the teams today, they have made sure their "holiday season" extends into the weekend with a Round of 32 matchup on Saturday. For the other half, their short trip on the dance floor has come to an end.
Unfortunately, for four teams, their day was particularly harsh.
