Well March Madness certainly lived up to its nickname in the first day of the Round of 64, as there were four upsets. It's safe to say most people's brackets ended up in the recycling bin after a pair of three seeds Baylor and Iowa State were dethroned by mid-majors Georgia State and UAB, but here's to hoping the second day of the tournament won't leave your bracket with more red than green.
The wait is over for Maryland fans as the Terps take the court Friday at 4:40 p.m. ET, facing off against a tough Valparaiso squad that received an automatic bid after winning the Horizon League title.
Like yesterday, the games start just after noon and the games won't wrap up until after midnight which means another 12 plus hours of flipping through channels and prioritizing basketball over work. With Day 1 in the books, we want to know how your brackets are looking. What was your favorite game from yesterday? What matchups are you looking forward to today?
