NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Columbus Practice Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

There really isn’t anything as awesome as the first two days of the NCAA Tournament for a fan of college basketball. You basically get lunch to sleep basketball with a tiny break in between for dinner. It’s perfect.

I’m a little bummed that I’m going to be missing a decent chunk of today’s action in the car on my way to Columbus, but I know it’s more than worth it to get to see our Tar Heels play tonight. It’s a long wait between now and approximately 9:20 pm tonight. Might as well take in all the other basketball we can.
