The 2011 NCAA tournament continues on with the second round* on Saturday. We have 32 teams remaining from the March Madness field of 68 which means eight games on Saturday and anther eight on Sunday. We've got a solid lineup of games on Saturday and the highlight locally will be Kansas State vs. Wisconsin.
*Yes, I know they now say round one is actually round two. That's just...dumb. I'm sticking with Saturday and Sunday's games as round two.
There are several other good games as well. I'm looking forward to Richmond and Morehead State mostly because it's a 12 and a 13 seed seed. One of those teams will be advancing to play the winner of Kansas vs. Illinois (which takes place on Sunday).
Starting at 12:15 p.m. (ET) until about midnight tonight, we've got college basketball. Grab your booze, get a seat on the couch, man the remote, grab your cell phone for pizza delivery and prepare for 13 hours of basketball.
