Tagline Sports College Basketball Tournament: Round of 64 – East

Day Two of the Round of 64 takes us to the East Region, where the Dayton Flyers command attention. But to escape, the Flyers will need to get past always tough Butler, the upset minded Buffaloes of Colorado, the Big Ten top dog (turtle) Maryland, perennial contender Villanova, and the ACC Champion and Final Four contender Florida State. This is easily one of the toughest regions, with whatever school comes out on top being very battle tested.
