The other half of the bracket gets underway on Friday with 16 games, and unlike Thursday the Mountain West game gets underway early in the day. New Mexico tips off at 1:40 p.m. ET against Stanford and will be seen on TBS. Just because this game is early in the day that does not mean the action is over, so hang around and chat about the other games and in particular the Kansas vs. Eastern Kentucky game since if New Mexico wins they will face the winner of that game.
Hopefully a lot of you have the day off, open internet access at work or are streaming the games on your break to catch a glimpse of these games.
