“Round 2” (I’m still not used to calling it that SCREW PLAY IN GAMES DESPITE THAT PRETTY ENTERTAINING IOWA – TENNESSEE CONTEST LAST NIGHT) of the Big Dance kicked off with a bang earlier today when the 11th seeded Dayton Flyers out of the perfectly rated and competitive (despite what Coach K has to say) Atlantic 10 Conference topped the 6th seeded Ohio State Buckeyes. The Flyers advanced after Vee Sanford banked in a runner with 3.8 seconds and senior Aaron Craft rimmed out a desperation last second shot. With this, 80% of the nation’s elusive quest for a perfect bracket are ruined. It’s best to get the dreams of that ONE…BILLION…DOLLAR…perfect bracket dream out of our collective melon-headed daydreams and just enjoy the rest of what this glorious 4-day stretch has to offer. Unless you’re SMRT like me and picked Dayton in which case, that billion is ALL MINE.
