It’s Tuesday, which means it’s the “first” day of the NCAA Tournament. We’ve got two games tonight involving teams with seeds that add up to 54! Use this thread to follow along, tell everyone who doesn’t care at all about your bracket, pretend like you have any idea who any of the players are, etc...

No porn, no links to illegal/unauthorized streams of the game, limit your dickishness to others as much as possible.

GAME 1

(16) LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds v. (16) Radford Highlanders - East Region

6:40 p.m. EDT - TruTV and/or somewhere CBS-owned online, probably

Representing the Northeastern Conference and the Big South/schools Beez’s grandmother went to, I think, these teams are playing for the right to meet Villanova in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

GAME 2

(11) St. Bonaventure Bonnies v. (11) UCLA Bruins - East Region

9:10 p.m. EDT - TruTV

A 10 against the Pac12, playing to get to Dallas and face Florida. It seems weird that the East has two play-in/First Four games and one region doesn’t have any, but I’m sure it’s happened many times before.

Full TV schedule (including NIT and CBI), you’re welcome
