Like yesterday, all games can be streamed online through ESPN3. Regional games will be played on ESPN2. Everyone will get to see UConn play St. Francis (Brooklyn) at 9 p.m. ET.

Among today's matches, I am going with the Princeton vs. Green Bay match later this morning as my "Game of the Day." Despite the fact that the Tigers were 30-0, their otherwise weak schedule was why they earned a #8 seed in the Big Dance. As a result, Princeton will play another mid major team that is capable of giving them an early exit back up I-95 and the New Jersey Turnpike. Personally, I'm rooting for them to make the Selection Committee eat crow, where I want to see them actually advance to the Sweet 16. 

Today, we also will see Chattanooga and FGCU play against major conference teams who are "underdog" teams based on seedings. It will be interesting to see how they fare in these matches as well.

That's all I have, and it's time to enjoy more March basketball.
