Purdue has the last game of 8 today.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Purdue vs Vermont James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament is complete and it was rather dull. The top 4 seeds in each region all survived and the one 12 over 5 upset was the predictable Middle Tennesee State over Minnesota game. Does that mean a wild round 2? We’ll see.

If chalk continues to hold it will be good news for Purdue.

Today’s games get underway just after noon, and our Boilers will be playing at approcimately 9:40pm tonight int he last game of the day to tip off.

Here is your full schedule:
