The second full day of NCAA Tournament action. Thursday had a few upsets and interesting games but felt fairly understated as far as first round days go. Then again, it is rare to have both Thursday and Friday be completely nuts. Since Thursday was even keel, Friday might be the day for chaos.

Here is the schedule:

#10 Syracuse vs. #7 Dayton, 12:15 PM, CBS

#15 UNC Asheville vs. #2 Villanova, 12:40 PM, truTV

#13 Hawaii vs. #4 California, 2:00 PM, TBS

ACC went 4-0 on Thursday with wins by UNC, Virginia, Miami and Duke. Syracuse, Pitt and Notre Dame take their turn today. A solitary #1 seed on the schedule today and that is Oregon. The most interesting game of the day is West Virginia vs Stephen F. Austin which pits the top two teams in the country in defensive turnover rate.
