I'm pumped for these next two nights, I wanna see 32 buzzer beaters tonight and 16 more tomorrow!

Alright! So no overtimes, is what I'm hearing you say. :)

I don't think my heart can take three of those in person... but I'd eventually get over it and regale people with tales of the most dramatic first weekend pod in tournament history.

And all 48 with variants of the Baruch-style football play!  (Of course. with Wooster using one of these against the Barookadookas tonight.)

How many mins of practice this week across both genders were devoted to defending the Baruchadooka?  ;D

Wasn't that a big Trace Adkins country hit? "Honky Tonk Baruchadooka"?

It's always good to see schools get into the dance for the first time ever. Here's the list of D3 programs that are losing their tournament virginity this time around:

Arcadia
Chatham
Emerson
Eureka
Lake Forest
Rosemont

It's especially good to see LFC in the tourney, as the Foresters have been a part of D3 since the very beginning of D3 men's basketball back in the 1974-75 season.

I like your spelling better! 

As to the play itself, the more I watch it, the more it looks like creative genius.  Hard to believe, though, that they actually just drew it up in the huddle, as perfectly as it worked.

 Thanks for the historical perspective. And, from the other end of the spectrum, Wittenberg becomes the leader in appearances as Scranton drops out of the previous tie by failing for the 2nd consecutive year to make the tourney. A conference semifinal win instead of loss might have gotten them in this year.

only one close finish so far, Nichols with some really good defense in the final minute to deny Middlebury 74-71.

Another close finish: UW-Platteville and Capital are in overtime @ Augustana's Carver Center.

Behrend comes up just short despite Hamilton committing a five-second violation and an intentional foul in the final 20 seconds.

the Johnnies are getting pantsed at home by the UMAC champ for the second year in a row.

All the other games are beatdown city...I'm not getting the 2018-style nuttiness I was looking for at all.

St. John’s can’t get out of their own way... balls bouncing off hands and nothing seeming to drop for the Johnnies. UNW on the other hand is rebounding well and shooting the lights out against a team that usually extremely limits both of those for opponents. Credit to the eagles, they always seem to be well prepared for these NCAA games! Hopefully they can give the Titans a game tomorrow!

That makes St. John's the first host team to lose. Even if they're hosting as a #2, by the computers they're good enough to have been a #1.

There were almost two tonight. Hamilton managed to come from behind to win by two in a game that PSU-Behrend led most of the way, and in which a pretty crazy ending culminated in PSUB missing two point-blank shots in the final three seconds, either one of which would've sent the game to OT if it had gone down.

Arcadia and Moravian won their first ever NCAA tournament games tonight.  Augustana extends it's active record streak to six straight NCAA Tournaments with at least one win (Emory failed to win in their seventh straight tourney).  Wittenberg extends its all-time lead with a 22nd NCAA tournament with at least one win.
