Time to head off to Dayton! The first four is among us, featuring schools fighting for a chance to make it into the Round of 64. Of the schools featured, perhaps the most interesting ones are Texas, North Carolina State, and UCLA, with the latter two going against each other. UCLA gained a lot of traction down the stretch and became one of the favorites to make a deep, Cinderella-like run. Let’s see who will advance to the Round of 64, beginning tomorrow?
