March Madness Day 2 live blog: Follow all the action with SI.com writers and editors
Day 2 got off and running with a huge upset, as No. 14 seed Mercer became the second consecutive Atlantic Sun champion to rock the college basketball world in the round of 64, pulling off a 78-71 victory over Duke in Friday's first game. A few hours later in the same arena, Tennessee became the first team from this year's First Four to advance to the weekend with a blowout win over Massachusetts that assured at least one double-digit seed of a berth in the Sweet Sixteen. How many more shockers lie ahead? Will we see an encore to Thursday night's flurry of overtime finishes?
