After two days of second-round, bracket-busting action, we reach the Saturday portion of the first weekend of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The Round of 32 begins today and our beloved California Golden Bears are one of the teams still alive. The Bears play Syracuse at 6:40 pm PT tonight in San Jose. There will be a separate open thread for that game.
This is your open thread for all the other games today. Sit down, try to relax, and enjoy the games leading up to tonight's Cal-Syracuse matchup. Maybe have a beverage, or a few beverages, to take the edge off.
