NCAA Tournament Scores and Results: Thursday

I couldn't sleep last night. It felt like Christmas. Better than Christmas even: Thursday is the first day of the NCAA Tournament, and everyone should be excited beyond belief. 

Be prepared for a barrage of buzzer beaters, down to the wire games, and insane moments.
