NCAA Tournament Day Two Evening Games Open Thread

This weekend, AndBears will be accompanying the Cal Women's Basketball Team down to Los Angeles for the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament. This leaves me, ragnarok, all alone for the weekend. What's a guy to do? Revert to bachelor mode, that's what! With the NCAA tournament going on this weekend, the symptoms are bound to be even worse: I might go days without eating anything that wasn't microwaved first.

AndBears takes off at 4:30 today, just in time to hit up Beat The Clock at Bears' Lair and catch some of this evening's basketball action. Here's what's going down:

4:10 PM - No. 1 Louisville vs. No. 16 Morehead State
4:10 PM - No. 5 Utah vs. No. 12 Arizona
4:20 PM - No. 7 Boston College vs. No. 10 USC
4:25 PM - No. 4 Xavier vs. No. 13 Portland State

...and then...

6:40 PM - No. 8 Ohio State vs. No. 9 Siena
6:40 PM - No. 4 Wake Forest vs. No. 13 Cleveland State
6:50 PM - No. 2 Michigan State vs. No. 15 Robert Morris
6:55 PM - No. 5 Florida State vs. No. 12 Wisconsin

With Cal out of the picture early, I don't really have a strong rooting interest in any of these games; I suppose I'll be rooting for 'Zona and 'SC out of Left Coast Pride, though rooting for the Trojans always makes me feel wrong, somehow. What do you think: are our rivals still our rivals once the Bears are eliminated?
