Michigan State, a team that lost exactly four games all season before the NCAA tournament, is now on its way home thanks to the fact Tom Izzo could not maneuver past a zone.

If a mercy rule is ever created for college basketball, it should be called the Geno Auriemma rule. Auriemma’s UConn Huskies dynasty hit new heights this afternoon, beating St. Francis, a 16 seed from Pennsylvania, 140-52 in their opening game of the NCAA Tournament. Somehow, that 88-point victory doesn’t do justice…
If the impossible was ever going to become possible, it was going to happen against a team like Virginia.

Ten-seed Oklahoma and seven-seed Rhode Island are currently locked in a close first-round matchup; so far, Rams senior guard Jared Terrell, the team’s sharpshooter and leading scorer, has struggled inside the arc, shooting just 4-of-12.
