Working Our Way To 32: NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Second Round, Friday Afternoon and Evening Open Thread

Cal conquerors Augustus Gilchrist and the rest of his USF Bulls teammates will try to stay hot tonight against Temple.

We have reached the Friday afternoon and evening action in the first second round of the 2012 NCAA men's basketball tournament. There should be some bittersweet feelings for Cal fans tonight. Okay, who am I kidding? Just bitter. This is the day the Bears could have been playing if they had not been so thoroughly dominated by the South Florida Fighting Stan Heaths in Wednesday night's "First Four" matchup.

South Florida's impressive win over the Bears means that Stan Heath's team is the one playing Temple tonight in Nashville. Can the Bulls make it two in a row and get a chance to play three games in five days? We shall see. That game is tonight, one of the last ones on the slate. There's plenty of action to follow before then.

Full Friday afternoon and night schedule after the jump. Enjoy the games.
