The first (real) day of March Madness is in the books, with several thrilling finishes and a number of key upsets. That means that the 2011 NCAA Tournament bracket has now been updated.
Half of the teams in the field have advanced to the Round of 32, with the other 16 Round of 64 games to be played on Friday. The entire Southeast Region has now played their Round of 64 games, as well as half the West region and one quarter of the East and Southwest Regions. It is different now than it was in the past, when two regions would play each day.
In the West region, the bottom half of the bracket has been played, with the No. 2 seed (San Diego State), No. 3 seed (Connecticut), No. 6 seed (Cincinnati) and No. 7 seed (Temple) moving on. The 5/12 and 4/13 games were played in the Midwest and East regions. In the East region, No. 4 Kentucky and No. 5 West Virginia moved on, while the Southwest Region saw two upsets with No. 12 Richmond and No. 13 Morehead State advancing.
