Day 2 of the NCAA tournament included a pair of close contests going to the wire Wednesday night in Dayton to complete the First Four portion of the tourney.
Neither of the games Wednesday was particularly pretty, although the second half of the nightcap—a 67-62 win for Michigan over Tulsa—was much more entertaining and better played than anything that came before it. Holy Cross, the only team in the tournament with a losing record, took the first game 59-55 over Southern.
No. 11 seed Michigan now advances to a first-round game against No. 6 seed Notre Dame in the East Region. No. 16 seed Holy Cross gets to travel to Spokane, Washington, for a first-round encounter against No. 1 seed Oregon in the West Region.
Sports personality Bill Simmons, a graduate of Holy Cross, took to Twitter to proclaim: "Six more wins!!!!!"
Although that's not likely to happen, here are the winners and losers from the night when the Crusaders at least got one.
