Watching the RMU v. Nova game. Despite being a Big East guy, I'm pulling for RMU. I picked them in my main bracket on a hunch. I've seen them play a few times and they are a pretty good basketball team that is way under the radar being from the Colonial.

Up 8 with a 5 min left in the first half.

I didn't go as far to pick Robert Morris, but I tend to think Nova is the most overrated team coming from the Big East.....we'll see!

I have BYU and ND in current games, but either of them going the other way wouldn't shock me. ODU is tough and Florida could certainly win too.

Florida was up 5 at one point then took a beating on a BYU run..still only down 2 at halftime with a shot..

dont think many seen this coming from Nova..i know a lot of people viewd them as overrated but losing to a 15 seed..wow...im thinking they are started to find a little rythm..but they need tostep up their game if they survive this one

well looks like ND is the first casualty of the day...some people had this as an upset..some had them going to Sweet 16..guess well see if Nova can win or maybe Richmond has a shot now for the 16

I picked ND in that game. Not terribly surprised that they lost. They haven't been all that good this year. I was really surprised that they landed a 6 seed.

I thought Notre Dame had really upped their game, with the slower pace and having Harangody back......they had looked really good their last few games. I have a bunch of brackets going and picked them to do anything from lose this game to win a few rounds. ODU is a TOUGH team to play for anyone. They beat Georgetown at McDonough for the 2nd time in 3 years or so early this season......last time was when GU went to the Final 4, so I am hoping it is a good sign!

Overall, these opening games aren't doing me any favors.....shouldn't hurt too bad though.

Dame had no business making the tourney, let alone a seed that high. Had ODU in my big $$ bracket,so it's all good for me

and Florida is done..damn was looking good earlyand had 2 2 2 2 2 2 2!!! chances to close it out for the win and ridiculous gameplan/shot selection with the last shots at end of regulation and first OT

no way Nova loses if this goes to OT

Reynolds at the line for 2

Crap. Good showing by RMU. Wish they would have been able to pull it out.

At least Nova didn't pull the "foul them before they can shoot a 3" deal. While it's usually the right move, it's kind of a d-bag move.
