ONE OF THE BEST MATCHUPS TODAY WILL ALSO BE THE FIRST ON THE SLATE, as VCU and Michigan meet in Auburn Hills at 12:15 p.m. This game pits star Wolverines guard Trey Burke against the relentless pressure of the Rams. The Atlantic 10 is 6-0 in this year’s tournament after La Salle and Temple both pulled off upsets yesterday. Very impressive.
THE ACC WENT 3-1 YESTERDAY, with Duke, Miami and UNC all advancing and N.C. State falling to Temple. The upset of the day was Florida Gulf Coast over No. 2 seed Georgetown.
Today’s most competitive matchup in Vegas’ eyes is Butler-Marquette, with the Golden Eagles a 1.5-point favorite (7:45 p.m., WDBJ). The biggest spread is Louisville by 11 over Colorado State (5:15 p.m., WDBJ).
