2014 NCAA Basketball Tournament Thursday Thread: BYU vs Oregon & More

New, 24 comments

March Madness is here and the Cougars are in Milwaukee to take on the Oregon Ducks in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. BYU's game tips off at 1:10 pm on truTV, but our thread will be open all day to discuss any and every game you want.

Welcome to Vanquish the Foe's game thread for the Thursday games of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

Thursday's most important game (for Cougar fans) is obviously BYU's rematch with Oregon at 1:10 pm on truTV. The Cougars come into Thursday's match-up with a lot to prove after losing key starter, Kyle Collinsworth, to a season-ending injury in the WCC Championship Game last week. BYU will need big games out of guys like Anson Winder, Eric Mika, and Matt Carlino if they want to replace Collinsworth's contributions and advance out of the second round of the tournament.

Outside of BYU's game, fans will want to do some advanced scouting on Wisconsin. The Badgers will be -- barring a shocking upset by American (Go Eagles!) -- BYU's Saturday opponent if the Cougars get past Oregon today.

If you're anything like me, you'll be watching a lot more than just BYU vs Oregon and Wisconsin vs American, so we'll have this thread up all day to discuss the 16 games that will take place today. Feel free to comment as much as you want on any or all of them. You can find the times and channels for each game in the viewing guide below.
