Get your finger on that boss button and settle in for a day of procrastination with KSR’s Guide to the Madness. First, if you’re not around a TV, here’s the link to watch all of the games online: MARCH MADNESS LIVE
Friday’s early afternoon games are:
(15) Albany vs. (2) Duke, 12:15 p.m. ET (CBS), MIDWEST, Philadelphia
Sadly, the Great Danes don’t have much of a shot against Duke, but who cares, I’ll cheer for them anyway. GO GREAT DANES!
(12) Ole Miss vs. (5) Wisconsin, 12:40 p.m. ET (TruTV), WEST, Kansas City
Talk about polar opposites. Not only do Ole Miss and Wisconsin have totally different playing styles, but look at their star players: Marshall Henderson and forward Mike Bruesewitz. They look like they could have a sitcom together. The only reason to watch? Henderson does something crazy, awesome, stupid or likely, a combination of all three.
(9) Temple vs. (8) NC State, 1:40 p.m. ET (TBS), EAST, Dayton
In four of the last five NCAA tournaments Temple has been in, they’ve lost the first game, but they’ll have their top rebounder, Anthony Lee, back after he sustained a concussion in the A-10 Tournament. I’m still cheering for NC State because of the gif above.
(15) Pacific vs. (2) Miami, 2:10 p.m. ET (TNT), EAST, Austin
The amount of palm trees I saw while looking up pictures for both of these schools pissed me off. Miami will roll, go Shane Larkin.
