The final day of the first two (well, the first proper two) rounds of the NCAA Tournament is here. While we have a bittersweet feeling knowing that after today we'll have just 17 games to go before the long, hard college basketball offseason, today should be plenty action packed and give us tons to talk about between now and Thursday's action.
Highlighting today's action is Kentucky and Wichita State. The Shockers, the same side that ended Ohio State's season last year, have been the talk of college basketball – and with good reason – but now they run head on into arguably the most talented team in the entire country. To WSU's credit, UK's wildly inconsistent and the inability for Coach Calipari to get his side to regularly be on the same page will greatly benefit Gregg Marshall's more cohesive bunch.
If you're in your fortress of solitude or at your buddy's place who has a four TV setup, you're more likely than not good to go. The action tips off at 12:15 p.m. ET on CBS, with many of the rest of the games airing on a variety of Turner networks (TBS, TNT, and TruTV). While the glory days of having the viewing experience change for us are gone, the games are far more staggered to the point where especially with the aid of technology, you're only a remote click away from seeing the next Dayton-Syracuse finish.
