NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1 Play Ins

March Madness as in I must be insane to attempt this. It’s an unbelievable amount of work.

Clicking through on the team’s name brings you to their school basketball home page. Clicking through on their record brings you to their game results in case you’re foolish enough to try and handicap and are involved in a bracket pool. Good luck if you have an alumni interest, my Men’s favorite is Michigan State and my Ladies favorite is UConn.

There are also teams I hate more than others.

I can already tell you that until the Regional Semi Finals (Round of 16) I’ll be scrambling. From March 22 until the #MarchForOurLives on the 24th I’ll be on the road and I may extend my stay in D.C. to catch the Cherry Blossoms which I have never seen. We only liveblog games of interest to us.

We cover both the Ladies and Men’s sides, in the early rounds (64 and Regional Quarterfinals) this means afternoon and evening editions. Results of the previous round are generally published before the next game, not the day after the game.
