ncaa duke lehigh 2012 NCAA tournament TV schedule for Saturday, March 17: Happy St. Patrick's Day!For the Sunday, March 18 TV schedule, check here.

The first round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament definitely did not disappoint. Up until Friday (March 16), only four 15-seeds had ever topped a 2-seed and it hadn’t happened for 11 years – and then we got to see it happen twice in one day. Well done, Norfolk State and Lehigh.

There are some good match-ups for St. Patrick’s Day. Will there be a second-round upset of a 1-seed – it’s not uncommon. If Iowa State plays like they did against UConn, they might have a shot, but the better bet is Syracuse being toppled by K-State. Syracuse almost became the first 1-seed to lose in the first round – thankfully they had the refs there to help them out (/sarcasm).

All times Eastern.
