The NCAA insists on calling this the second round even though it feels like the first round. Just another minor change that probably does not matter but annoys me nonetheless, sort of like the change to FBS and FCS instead of I-A and I-AA in football. Anyway, Clemson will try to muster another nice effort after a less than 48 hour turnaround from their win on Tuesday night.

On first glance the most interesting matchups are Butler-Old Dominion, Kentucky-Princeton and Vanderbilt-Richmond. I throw UK-Princeton in there because you never know what might happen with Princeton in the NCAA Tournament.
