    Well, the first game of the tournament already goes into overtime. March Madness truly has arrived.

    UNC Asheville picked up the win, and while they might not be the devil's team of UNC I was still hoping for Arkansas-Little Rock to get the win. It was a fun back and forth game to kick off the tournament and seeing the announcers struggle correctly say the initials of these teams, let alone make comments about these teams was a nice added bonus.

    The real tournament begins on Thursday, but I have to say for two terrible schools this was not a bad game at all.moreless
