We've waited for nearly a year, but March Madness is finally upon us.

Here are three games from each day of the Round of 64 that you shouldn't miss. Then again, most games are classified as 'must-watch' this team of year.


Early game - No. 11 Bucknell vs. No. 6 Butler (12:40 ET, truTV) - Butler, my personal favorite Cinderella (sorry George Mason, VCU), has an extremely tough opponent in Bucknell. The Bison are led by all-everything forward Mike Muscala.

KenPom says: 62-61 Butler

Afternoon game - No. 11 Saint Mary's vs. No. 6 Memphis (2:45 ET, CBS) - Will Matthew Dellavedova and Saint Mary's slow down a doubted Memphis squad?

KenPom says: 72-69 Saint Mary's

Late game - No. 11 Belmont vs. No. 6 Arizona (7:20 ET, TNT) - Yet another 6-11 match up. Should be an entertaining game that revolves around guard play and outside shooting.

KenPom says: 72-69 Arizona


Early game - No. 13 La Salle vs. No. 4 Kansas State (3:10 ET, truTV) - Can the Explorers match their net-scorching performance that they put on against Boise State last night?

KenPom says: 68-66 Kansas State

Late Game #1 - No. 9 Villanova vs. No. 8 North Carolina (7:20 ET, TNT) - North Carolina has done nothing but improve as the season has progressed. So has Villanova.

KenPom says: 73-71 North Carolina

Late Game #2 - No. 10 Iowa State vs. No. 7 Notre Dame (9:45, CBS) - Dead-even match up. Iowa State has plenty of upperclassmen experience while Mike Brey looks to avoid his second first-round exit as a 7-seed in a row.

KenPom says: 73-72 Notre Dame
