    One of the most entertaining aspects of the NCAA tournament are the upsets that are bound to occur every year. Last season’s event featured a pair of 15-seeds winning on the same day, as Lehigh beat Duke and Norfolk State edged out Missouri. There’s also the history of at least one 12-seed knocking off a…

    Larry Eustachy

    A guy like Larry Eustachy seems to appreciate second chances. After he lost his gig at Iowa State for various photos of him partying with co-eds at Missouri after a loss, along with a battle with alcoholism, it took him just a year to land his next Division I gig, that one at Southern Miss.…

Whether it’s opposing student sections or shock jocks or twitter, any time you mention Eustachy and Colorado State, his past — his alcoholism — comes up. (And it’s not funny, but I’ll leave it to Andy Glockner to explain why.) But here’s the thing:…

  12. Must-see opening round matchups

    Mar 18, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT


    Just a couple of years ago, it would have been difficult to call any game a “must-see”, simply because television coverage of the NCAA tournament was heavily regionalized.

    Shaka Smart got his first Division I coaching gig under Keith Dambrot at Akron. As you may know, Smart is now at VCU. VCU plays Akron in the opening round of the tournament. I wonder if Dambrot regrets taking this picture?: And I wonder if he’s still going to be a fan of ‘Havoc’ after…

Duke does at well as a No. 2 seed. That’s the same Duke team that was the best team in the country before Ryan Kelly…
