March Madness back! Your Villanova Wildcats take on the UNC-Asheville Bulldogs today at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. today at 12:40pm ET. Hopefully your employer has a work from home policy, but even if they don't this is the perfect opportunity for a late lunch and gamewatch.
Coming off a loss in the Big East Tournament and a multi-year streak of early NCAA exits, Villanova will be motivated to set the record straight as they start their campaign. In their way is a Bulldogs team that is red-hot after winning the Big South Tournament. Despite being outmatched on paper, they'll surely leave it all on the floor.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 12:40pm ET. The game will be aired on truTV.
Odds: OddsShark reports the game opened at Villanova -15.5.
Radio: All Villanova Men's Basketball games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 WIP. Westwood One will also air coverage of the game - check your local listings, or you can use a radio app such as Tune.in.
Live Video Stream: NCAA.com & the March Madness Live app

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Abita Purple Haze
Having a brother in-law who is a bartender on St. Patrick's Day/March Madness Day One was an experience. No Guinness or Jameson today for me. Which is a shame since I will be at an Irish pub.
But never fear, I'm rolling back to an old favorite to bring back the good vibes. Let's do this!
