NCAA Tournament: Round of 32 Sunday Open Thread

Which teams today will join Jim Boeheim's happy Syracuse Orange in the Sweet 16? - Thearon W. Henderson

It is a sad day in Bear Land as Cal's season ended Saturday with a Round of 32 loss to Syracuse. The 2013 NCAA Tournament marches on today with eight spots left to fill in the Sweet 16

The California Golden Bears 2012-13 season ended Saturday night with a frustrating, sloppy 66-60 loss to the Syracuse Orange at HP Pavilion in San Jose. The "home" crowd and a bevy of missed free throws and turnovers by Syracuse weren't enough for Cal to pull the upset. Cal's own turnovers and an inability to get good shots against the famed 2-3 zone of the Orange did the Bears in. So Cal bids adieu to this season and looks forward to the next.

In the bigger picture, though, there remains the matter of finishing the 2013 NCAA Tournament and crowning a national champion. Eight games are on tap today with the eight winners getting the privilege of continuing their season next weekend in the Sweet 16.
