Open Thread: 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament & Nebraska Baseball vs. Wichita State

Double dipping for the day today.

Ryan Tweedy

Good Saturday afternoon to you.

Another round of NCAA Basketball Tournament play, which we'll get to below. First off, however, your how to watch/follow for Nebraska Baseball as they try to get back to level on the weekend with Wichita State.

Yesterday was not a kind day for the Huskers as they lost at home 17-5. What's more mindboggling is that they led the game 3-0 over the Shockers, who have not been good this year. What led Nebraska wrong? Pitching.

And, to be honest, it was not really a bad time by just one guy on the mound. Ted Silva's crew had equal suckage through the whole game.

We'll see how Nebraska can get right. The particulars of today's game.

Talking points for the day:

- What was the craziest finish of all the crazy finishes yesterday? I think the Cincinnati dunk that didn't count is the biggest one, bigger than the UNI half-court winner.

- Spring Break: like it, love it, or loathe it?

- Sam's Club or Costco?
