Today a #2 seed already received a scare when Cal-State Northridge was leading Memphis 62-56 with not long to go in the game. Memphis managed to pull ahead for an eventual victory. Also disconcerting: that game happened in Kansas City. The other game? A 10-7 upset with Maryland taking down California.

Hopefully Kansas City doesn't turn into the upset city of the tournament (there's usually one that stands out).

For a preview of the Morgan State Bears, click here. It's something I threw together earlier.

And here's the OU intro video that they play on the HD screens in the LNC:
