Day 3

So many of the early second-round games today were close.

Marquette put up a good fight before succumbing to Tennessee.

Marist had Duke on the ropes for a while before the Blue Devils pulled it out.

DePaul squeaked it out over Penn State.

Ohio State won a close, physical game against Georgia Tech.

Basketball fans are screaming “parity, parity” on twitter. Maybe they’re right.

Moments ago, North Carolina upset Kentucky 86-74 (no story as of this moment).

But right now I’m upset because Gonzaga just up-ended UCLA. Of course I congratulate Zag point guard Courtney Vandersloot for her 2000th point and 1000th assist. But that’s all I have to say besides congratulations, Bruins. You had a hell of a season, and you made me proud to be a fan.
