The first round is done and I went 5-3 yet again putting me at a mediocre 10-6 for the tournament. The benefit of yesterdays losses is that I had all of those squads losing in the second round. Illinois St. lead for the majority of the game in knocking off Utah St. And then I got which Conference USA team was going to win wrong. I went with Charlotte who lost to Nebraska instead of UAB who beat VCU. Oh well. The rest of the picks were pretty much chalk picks and correct. With the closest being a close victory by Cal over New Mexico won by two free throws in the final 4 seconds.
