Tagline College Basketball Tournament: Round of 32 – East/South

Day Two of the Round of 32 Kicks Off with the East Region and the South Region. We have a couple potential Cinderella stories that could be written if 10-seed Utah State can get past 2-seed Florida State in the East Region or if either 11-seed Cincinnati or 10-seed USC win in the South Region. Other games of note today are the rematch of Dayton and Colorado (who handed the Flyers one of their only losses), the Battle of Pennsylvania – Penn State v Villanova, and an in-state matchup of Ohio State and Akron.
