TheLiveBlog: NCAA Tournament, First Round (Day 2)

Well, I expect that today's liveblog will be a little quieter, since everybody's favorite team will be taking a rest today. But hey, if you're around a computer and watching the games today, come on by. I'll be trying to keep my sanity after two 12-hour days of basketball.

Today, we narrow the field to 32 teams. After a pretty bland first day of the Tournament, we're due for all hell to break loose (hi, North Dakota State!) today.

(Also, as I said in yesterday's liveblog, I'll be away from about 1:30 until 3:00 or so. So try not to break the internet while I'm gone.)
