NCAA Tournament Day 3 Open Thread

Don't forget folks, UVA was the first ever 1 seed to lose to a 16 seed and not to mention, it was by 20. Guess they have to wait until football season.

I think we have the chance to see multiple upsets today if Buffalo can continue shooting how they did versus 'Zona and if Loyola can be stingy enough of the defensive side of things.

1) Villanova vs. (9) Alabama 12:10 p.m. CBS | Stream

I can watch basketball for fun again. UVA won the tournament for the whole world last night.

Right there in your hand: Transportation of illegal alcohol across state lines for the purpose of distribution.

Well I don't know what this looks like to you, officer, but this is not distribution this is consumption!

Never forget that UVA blew a 1-16 lead.

Moar upsets pleaseeeeee


"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

Beat Bama.

DiVincenzo is single-handedly keeping Villanova in this game. Heat check first half for him, he was draining them from DEEP.

Villanova going supernova to start the second half.

22-point lead already.

I really wanted to beat Bama, but they've run into a buzzsaw that would likely have happened to us too.

Jesus. Villanova went to town on Bama.


The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

It's going to mess up my bracket even more, but who cares at this point... Go Loyola-Chicago!

This is a really solid team. They even beat Florida in Gainesville earlier this year, so they're certainly not scared of P5 competition.

Can we get a compilation of shots of the old lady griffendor fan?

WOW! Another Rambler game won at the wire!!!

Best Tennessee team in a decade doesn't even make the sweet 16.

This is the best the tournament could possibly be going after our loss.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

UVa "biggest upset ever" tears


Voluntears for the chaser?

Is is my birthday?

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Nah, must be HokieGirl's.

Tenesseee our and Ohio state getting destroyed and UVA lost last night my god it's a dream come true

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Hudson and the Gators doing work. Looks like a good game brewing.

Annnnnnd you just saw the Hudson that would drive Buzz and Hokie fans crazy.

Stands in the lane watching the hoop on defense as his man blows right by him for a putback dunk, then the next time down the floor misses an ill-advised 3 with 25 seconds left on the shot clock.

Well yeah, duh. Lol.

i'm now on my 3rd straight game of incredibly close basketball this afternoon/night. march madness is das titties.

Houston getting screwed by these refs.

Of course Mich wins on an absolute trash buzzer beater, that should have been an offensive foul for kicking out.

Houston the better team, feel for those seniors for sure. Gray deserves better

But it was a catch!!!

Reach for Excellence!

VT Football: It'll get after ya!

Proud Hokie since 2004.

I might just be a little bitter, but this is still one of the main reasons why I root against Michigan.

Come on...that was no offensive foul.


So if there's never been a 16 over 1...I assume there's never been a 16 over any other seed either. Retrievers got some more records to set/break. How about multiple 16/1s in the same season?


-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

The odds look good for them if history is followed since a number 16 seed has never lost in the Round of 32.
