NCAA Tournament Field at 64 As Vermont, South Florida Pull Off Victories in Wednesday’s First-Round Games

The NCAA tournament's official first round is in the books, as Vermont and South Florida came away from Wednesday's games victorious.

BYU defeated Iona, while Western Kentucky took down Mississippi Valley State, in Tuesday's tournament-opening games, which are part of the tourney's official first round now that there's four play-in games.

On Wednesday, Four McGlynn recorded 18 points off the bench for Vermont as the Catamounts grabbed an early lead and hung on to beat Lamar.

Then, in Wednesday's second game, South Florida stormed out to a 36-13 halftime lead, and eventually hung on for a 65-54 win over Cal. The 11-point deficit isn't really indicative of how lopsided the affair was, though, as the Bulls dominated in an ugly game.

Now, let the real action begin. With a 64-team field set, this is when everyone's attention really turns to their brackets.
