NCAA Tournament Open Thread: BYU Vs. Gonzaga, San Diego State Vs. Temple, And Others

The second round of games get underway shortly and continues through tonight with quite a few intriguing NCAA tournament games. We are guaranteed a double-digit seed making the Sweet 16 with either Morehead State or Richmond.

Butler and Pitt is an interesting matchup since Pitt always seems to under perform come NCAA tournament time, and Butler is just the runner-up from last year's tournament.

As for the MWC games here is a preview by SB Nation's Gonzaga site, the Slipper Still Fits about the BYU game. San Diego State against Temple will be interesting since Temple plays a zone defense and forces teams to shoot the ball. The Aztecs are a better inside the team, so they will need to find a way to get the ball inside and shoot the ball well to beat that zone.
