NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Evening

The winners of the 2 Play In games that took place Tuesday are appearing tonight. It’s hard to call any of the Play In games upsets because they’re between 2 identical seeds but normally teams that win in an upset are marked with an Asterisk (*). Teams are presented higher seed to the left, the winning score is Bold Faced or you could just read the numbers and figure it out.

Tuesday’s Results

Seed Team Record Score Seed Team Record Score Region
16 LIU Brooklyn 18 – 17 61 16 Radford 23 – 12 71 East
11 St. Bonaventure 26 – 7 65 11 UCLA 21 – 12 58 East

Do we have favorites tonight? Sure. The Villanova Ballhogs because they appeared in Bored of the Rings, also Big East. Davidson because not Kentucky. San Diego State because not Texas. Texas v. Texas? Pick ’em.

Virginia Tech because not Alabama. Buffalo because New York. Michigan because… well, Michigan and Larry Kasdan. Bonnies because not ‘Gators.

You can certainly call my picks shallow, prejudiced, and ill-informed which is all true but it’s 100% as valid as basing it on uniform color, one of them is usually White and that’s boring.
