Murray State and Old Dominion Begin Madness

Earlier today the first round of the NCAA tournament got under way and already there have been a few upsets. No.4 Vanderbilt was just one of my sixteen teams moving to the Sweet 16 and took on Murray State in the first round. Vanderbilt's Jermaine Beal had 12 points and dished out 2 assists but is was the Racers Danero Thomas who hit the buzzer beater for a 66-65 win, just two of Thomas' 11 points. Murray State will now play Butler who beat UTEP 77-59.

Meanwhile, in the South region No. 6 Notre Dame played No. 11 Old Dominion in the first round. Notre Dame didn't start Luke Harangody who had just four points off the bech but it turns out they didn't need him as Ben Hansbrough put up 17 and 6 boards. But late in the game Old Dominion led 51-48. Notre Dame had a chance to tie it but Carleton Scott missed a three. Harangody put in the rebound but it wasn't enough as a team from the CAA took down the Irish of the Big East, 51-50.
