The play-in games were a nice appetizer, but now the real competition begins.
We enter the first half of the real bracket on our quest to settle one question: Who has the best logo in the NCAA tournament?
Let the Round of 64 logo battles commence...
Note: Voting for this round is now closed.
Villanova vs. New Orleans
Mount St. Mary's eked out the win on the court, but their stoic "The Mount" wordmark was no match for an angry, blue-bearded Jean Lafitte.
Wisconsin vs. Virginia Tech
Virginia vs. UNC-Wilmington
Florida vs. East Tennessee State
SMU vs. USC
In another of the "First Four" play-in games, the classic interlocked SC monogram prevailed over a worthy Providence wordmark/ominous Friar logo.
Baylor vs. New Mexico State
South Carolina vs. Marquette
Duke vs. Troy
Gonzaga vs. South Dakota State
Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt
Notre Dame vs. Princeton
West Virginia vs. Bucknell
Maryland vs. Xavier
Florida State vs. Florida Gulf Coast
St. Mary's vs. Virginia Commonwealth
Arizona vs. North Dakota
Polls for this round will close at 11:00 PM EST on Thursday, March 16th. Voting resumes Friday, March 17th with the Round of 64 in the Midwest and South regions.
