2016 March Madness: NCAA Tournament Round 2 OPEN THREAD

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Typically round 2 is when the upset minded teams come back to reality.  They don't have a week to prepare and talent generally wins out. Will that be the case for Yale, Little Rock, Wichita and Gonzaga?  I'll say this...beware the 11-seeds this year.  I would not be at all surprised if the Shockers and Bulldogs both advance to next weekend.

Game of the Day: Kentucky vs. Indiana - both teams are pretty good and playing well.  Should be the best game of the day.

Upset of the Day: I predict no upsets today. Gonzaga over Utah is a possibility but I'm going with zero upsets.
