NCAA Tourney Day Two

As expected, day two could not keep up with day one's drama and yesterday provided us with games which, for the most part, were true to seed/expectation.

Here are day two winners and losers.

- 10 seeds. Both Missouri and Georgia Tech won--MU with an eight point win over ACC foe Clemson and Tech with a win over Oklahoma State.

- Purdue. Everybody's pick as a first round upset victim looked good in dispatching Siena.

- KU fans. Yes, Kansas fans told anyone who would listen "watch out for Cornell" after the Ivy League team played the Jayhawks ultra-tough in Allen Fieldhouse. Cornell, likely under-seeded as a 12, beat Temple by 13.

- Jerome Randle. The Cal guard heaved a 40 foot shot, off of the dribble, at the end of the 1st half and found nothing but net.

- Oliver Purnell. The Clemson coach still hasn't won a first round NCAA tournament game.

- James Anderson. The Player-of-the-Year in the Big 12 struggled all night in the Oklahoma State loss to Georgia Tech, including at the end of the game when he tried to go one-on-three and was stripped of the ball on the last possession.

- Big East. Yes, I know, Pitt won as did Syracuse. But, the league with the most entrants is a disappointing 4-4 after round one.
