The best cure for a hangover is more beer, right?

NCAA Basketball: North Dakota at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The Hoyas and Buffs kick things off today, we quickly get into the weeds following that, especially for us Kansas fans. RCT will have a separate gamethread for the EWU-KU game, so check back to the home page for that. We will also, of course, have a new open thread for the games that start after 5 PM.

Yesterday, 5 double-digit seeds advanced to the second round, including 15-seed Oral Roberts over Ohio State. Let’s hope for KU’s sake that today is a little less... hectic.
