Yesterday was a pretty good day of basketball. There were a number of close games (Gonzaga, Marquette and Memphis) where the favored seed won. A bunch of not very close games (Syracuse, VCU, Michigan St, Wichita St). And then a handful of upsets with wins for Oregon, Cal and a HUGE win for Harvard.

I'd like to see at least one more upset! Below are today's games with times and TV. Unfortunately we have to wait till the last game of the day for the Gophers. I've bolded a few games that I am most looking forward to.
