The 2016 NCAA Tournament's opening two days are in the books, and Michigan and Holy Cross join Wichita State and FGCU as the winners of the First Four play-in games. Wednesday's bouts were as exciting as one could have asked for, with Tulsa and Southern storming second half comebacks that brought their games down to the wire.
Holy Cross in the end prevailed, 59-55, while Michigan staved off Tulsa's attack, 67-62. Both matchups offered multiple lead changes and single-digit advantages in the closing 10 minutes, with Tulsa in particular taking advantage of poor Michigan shooting and defense to mount a second-half comeback that almost worked.
The field of 64 is now set, and Thursday's first round tipoffs are mere hours away. Here's your printable bracket for that office or neighborhood pool. Which No. 4-No. 13 matchup proves to be the upset? Who wins No. 3 Texas A&M vs. No. 6 Texas in the second round? And how dangerous, really, is No. 12 Yale?
