The NCAA Tournament is through its first weekend. Fifty-two of the 68 teams have been eliminated. Of the 16 that remain there are some real surprises. Though Monday's action was a bit more hit-and-miss than the three days preceding it, this version of the tournament has a real chance to go down in history as one of the most exciting.
Action begins again on Saturday, which feels so far away. Then again, the unique wraparound nature of the Indiana-based playoff means today's already Tuesday. Below are tip times and announcing pairings for next weekend's games.
