NCAA Tournament 2014: Schedule, bracket, open thread for Saturday's games

The field is shrinking and on Saturday there are just eight games on tap, and each winner will earn a bid to the Sweet 16.

The Round of 32 gets under way with a 12 p.m. ET tip off with the first few games being out on the East coast. They are spread out a bit more with only eight games compared to 16 games, but eight is still plenty of fun especially with multiple double-digit seeds looking to make it to the Sweet 16.

Our game of interest of today is obviously San Diego State vs. North Dakota State which tips off at 6:10 p.m. ET and is on TNT, plus streaming over at March Madness Live. So, stop by and chat about this game and the other games. If San Diego State wins, their opponent will not be known until Sunday as that is when Gonzaga and Arizona face each other.

For those new to the site, this is a live chat to talk about the Mountain West games, plus the others.
