Okay, so that Florida/Milwaukee game wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The Gators ended up winning by 22, which is not what you'd call close. Still, to me, it felt like less of a blowout than the Duke/GW game. Maybe it's just me.

But Tennessee and Wichita State are cooking up a good one, though. The Vols lead by 3 with about 8 minutes to play. It's been a fantastic game. Win or lose, there is no question that Wichita State is one of the better teams in the country.

By the way, Keith at the Pitt Panther Hoops blog wrote in to tell me that when the Shockers came out for the 2nd half, their cheerleaders all held up the "shocker" hand symbol. That, um... seems slightly inappropriate. Surely the administrators at Wichita State are aware of this unfortunate naming coincidence by now.

Meanwhile, Illinois and Washington have already tipped and Washington has a very early 1-point lead.
