    Besides the upsets and Kentucky winning, yesterday was one of the best days of basketball I have seen. Almost every game was insane.

    Any day where UK wins and UL loses is a good one. Duke losing to a "lowly" SEC team just sweetens it. Thank you, Universe!

    It ranks right up there with the best of them. Any day that both UL and Duke lose is a great day. UNC** cheaters should have lost if the ref's had done their job correctly.

    Yes.

    And to add to it, now that all the games are available and start times are more evenly distributed throughout the day, we get to enjoy a lot more action on a day like yesterday.

    Best day I can remember for a while. Only UNC losing would have made it perfect.

    Only thing that kept it from being arguably the greatest all around tourney day in UK fan history would have been if Arky had hung on (i.e. if the refs had not decided to step in and save the baby blue turds).

    If Arkansas hadn't choked the last 3 minutes, it would have been just about perfect.

    Watching Duke go down to USCjr will go down as one of my favorites. The faces of the Duke players when calls went against them were priceless

    I'll say it was one of the best 2nd round days. It was really sweet to see my 2 most hated teams go down while we advance. However, my three favorite tournament days that I've personally watched are

    4/1/1996

    3/30/1998

    4/2/2012
