After an exciting first weekend of March Madness tournament action, there were some interesting story lines, as always. UCLA is still playing after everyone told them they didn’t belong in the tournament, albeit due to a questionable goal-tending call. Wichita St. is making some noise and could potentially have a matchup with Kentucky in the Elite 8 to avenge last season’s tournament exit. And NC State upset #1 seed Villanova and has a great opportunity to advance to the Final Four. Who knows what we are in for in the second weekend?
