The first day of Basketball Christmas didn't disappoint.
The NCAA Tournament kicked off with 16 games on Thursday and featured a pair of exciting upsets when 12-seeds Yale and Little Rock used every minute of the game clock (and sometimes more) to dispatch Baylor and Purdue, respectively. The Bulldogs made a late 12-point lead stand up when they stopped Lester Medford's potential game winning drive in the paint. The Trojans went the opposite way in their win; Little Rock trailed by 13 points with 3:20 to play but still found a way to pull off a victory in double overtime.
Those wins dropped a lot of brackets from the ranks of the unblemished, but it also set the tone for the second half of an action-packed first round. Sixteen more games will take place Friday, and we've got each and every one covered for you in the latest update of our printable bracket. Day two's action includes appearances from South Region No. 1 seed Oregon, Big Ten tournament champion Michigan State, and Big East regular season champ Villanova.
Those three, and 29 others, will battle for a spot in a second round that has already been half determined. Saturday's games will include a showdown between tradition hardwood powers when Connecticut and Kansas meet, a battle of the nerds between Duke and Yale, and an immovable object-unstoppable force situation when Wichita State's stingy defense clashes with Miami's efficient scoring attack.
