Let the live blogging begin!

All day, I will be reporting the happenings of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament live from the Midwest Region.

And by “live from the Midwest Region,” of course, I mean from my couch, a bit of a distance away from the actual sites.

The Midwest Region is highlighted by the No. 1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels, who face off in the second round against the Vermont Catamounts at 4:10pm ET. Don’t worry, I’ll mention John Henson’s wrist at least as much as the announcers do.

So far today, the North Carolina State Wolfpack topped the San Diego State Aztecs, 79-65 and the Creighton Bluejays completed a comeback from 11 points down, beating the Alabama Crimson Tide 58-57.

In the late afternoon games, the Georgetown Hoyas beat the Belmont Bruins 74-59 and the top seeded North Carolina Tar Heels beat the Vermont Catamounts 77-58.

There will be plenty more action in this region tonight, so keep checking back for updates!
