With the afternoon action in the books, it's time for the night shift to take over -- and this is when the #Madness could really take hold. Probably not in Villanova-Lafayette or Kentucky-Hampton (though we still wait longingly for the first-ever 1vs16 upset), but the rest of the games? Oh yeah. You've got a handful of 4v13 and 5v12 games, which are historically ripe for upsets; Stephen F. Austin upset VCU in the first round last year, so the Lumberjacks have some upset experience. Georgetown has been on the wrong end of more upsets than you can shake a stick at ('sup, DUNK CITY?) and Eastern Washington already has a Power-5 scalp on their belt this year ('sup, Indiana?), so there's definitely upset potential there. And, for good measure, you've got a pair of 8v9 games, too. Bring on the #Madness!
