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.
