For college basketball fans, the next few days are like Christmas.

The opening round of the NCAA Tournament begins today with 16 games on tap today beginning just after noon and going through the night.

Today has some pretty interesting games scheduled with Furman looking to pull an upset over Virginia, Illinois vs Arkansas in an intriguing 8-9 game, Oral Roberts vs Duke, and three of the four 1-seeds all in action.

Today is one of those days to get in front of your TV or your computer if you have to work and enjoy the annual fun of March Madness.

Of course, Kentucky isn’t in action today but Duke and Tennessee, both of which are in Kentucky’s region.

Today is a pressure-free day with Kentucky in action tomorrow, so sit back and enjoy folks!

An impressive accomplishment.
