NCAA Tournament Opening Round: First Four Open Thread, Part Deux

Gregory Shamus

The final two games of "The First Four" are on tap for tonight. LIU-Brooklyn vs. James Madison and LaSalle vs. Boise State. Which two teams get to keep dancing?

The 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament tipped off on Tuesday night with the first two games of "The First Four" in beautiful Dayton, Ohio. North Carolina A&T knocked off Liberty 73-72 in the opener and Saint Mary's handled Middle Tennessee 67-54 in the nightcap. NC A&T moves on to take on Midwest #1 seed Louisville on Thursday in Lexington, Ky., while the Gaels travel up Interstate 75 to take on Midwest #6 seed Memphis, also on Thursday.
