While we have to wait until Friday mid-afternoon to get our dose of Cowboys hoops in the Dance, there's plenty of basketball to discuss, and I'm sure most of you will be watching, work or no work.
Dayton - Ohio St, Pitt - Colorado, and Harvard - Cincy are early games that intrigue me. Always love me an Ivy League first round upset.
As for Big 12 action, we have to wait until Thursday evening to get NoDakSta - OU and Arizona St - Texas. Friday will be loaded with the other 5 Big 12 teams in action, plus our adopted teams...Wichita St and Tulsa.
Let us know who your upset picks are. Make sure you check out our other NCAA tourney coverage.
