The NCAA Tournament Madly Marches On: Saturday Round of 32 Open Thread

Harvard defeated Cal at Haas Pavilion in December. Can the Crimson knock off another Pac-12 team -- Arizona -- in the NCAA Tournament Round of 32? - USA TODAY Sports

Survive and advance...survive and advance...survive and advance. Sixteen teams (including the sturdy California Golden Bears) take the floor today hoping to do just that and advance to the second weekend of the 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament.

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.

Here is the schedule of games for today:
