Friday March Madness TV Schedule and Open Thread

New, 5 comments

There were quite a few upsets on day 1. Will there be some more on day 2?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday's opening day of March Madness went exactly as we all expected, which meant that teams no one expected to win made waves, while some also made history.

The Big 12 had a rather mediocre first day of the tournament. Kansas obliterated Austin Peay and Iowa State fended off Iona, but Texas Tech lost in an "upset" to Butler, 71-61, and Baylor handed Yale their first-ever tournament win.

After the game, Baylor forward Taurean Waller-Prince had the most brilliant answer to a question about rebounding.

Here's the full TV schedule for today's slate of games.
