NCAA Tournament: Round Two, Day Two Open Thread

Preview and schedule after the jump.

As Sunday of the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament dawns, four Big Ten teams remain in the mix and will hit the court for second round action Sunday.  Both Ohio State and Michigan State received boosts Saturday when the top seen in their region, Kansas, lost to Northern Iowa. 

Elsewhere, Purdue no longer has Villanova to contend with in its bracket if it can get past Duke after the Wildcats dropped a good one to St. Mary's early Saturday afternoon.

The Big East has now lost four of its eight teams to double-digit seeds, and five teams overall.  Pitt, Syracuse, and West Virginia are the lone holdouts from the uber-hyped league that's been battered badly in this tournament, and will be in action today as well.

Here is your Sunday schedule.
