2013 NCAA Tournament: Thursday's Open Thread

The Madness begins. Court is now in session!

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

The greatest 19 days of the College Basketball Season are here. Use this thread for discussion of on-going games that Villanova is not playing in!

Of note is that of the two No. 1 seeds playing Thursday — Gonzaga and Louisville — both play their respective games on TBS instead of CBS. The schedules seem to carry names of equal face value between the four. TBS has both No. 1 seeds Thursday, but the other three networks will each air a No. 3 seed at some point throughout the day.
