NCAA March Madness first round starts today

I am not normally a sports fan, but I do like to follow the March Madness (NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament). It’s not about the basketball for me, but I enjoy the bracket and the single elimination process.

I started to follow the tournament yesterday, the day that the First Four games concluded. I just printed out a bracket (sorry I can’t give a link posting from my phone) and will be writing out the results of the 16 first round games playing today, the first of which starts at 12:15 pm today. That first game is between 4th seed (in the west regionals) Duke vs 13th seed North Carolina – Wilmington.

In the previous 4 games, Wichita State beat Vanderbilt, Fairleigh Dickinson demolished FGCU, Michigan beat Tulsa, and Holy Cross edged Southern.

One more thing: Yale is in the tournament for the first time in many years, but their team captain, about to graduate, was just expelled recently ¬†over a sexual assault allegation that had absolutely no evidence to back it up. I’ll try to find the link where I read about that and add it to this post. Hope the crazy feminist ideas about “rape culture” don’t kill their chances, such as they are (they are seeded 12th and have to play a 5th seed, Baylor, at 2:45 today in Providence RI).
