|Through Opening Round Games|
Field narrowed from 64 to 32 teams:
Although it is too early to predict anything after Thursday and Friday's first round action, a few major upsets did happen which probably destroyed many of our brackets.
# 15 Norfolk State over # 2 MIssouri 86-84
# 15 Lehigh over # 2 Duke 75-70
<- C J McCollum - SID"s 18th round selection from Lehigh
We had 3 draft selections score more than 30 points during the opening round games. Dennis Hammer's Deshaun Thomas, the 2nd round, 15th overall pick from Ohio State hit for 31. Hammer's pick of Rodney McGruder, 9th round 86th overall pick from Kansas State scored 30. Finally C J McCollum (pictured above) scored 30 points to help defeat # 2 Duke. McCollum was drafted by the SID team in the 18th round, 171st overall pick.
A really nice turnout at the open house Thursday and Friday. I applaud the NCAA for changing things around by spreading out the games out to truTV, TNT and TBS. It's great to be able to watch many of these first round games almost in their entirety, the only obvious hangup is the length of time for commercials. A big thank you to all that participated, it makes watching the games that much more interesting and exciting.
