2015 NCAA tournament Thursday open thread

Let's do this thing. The first wave of games this afternoon involves a trio of 3-14 matchups and one 2-15, so the tournament might be light on drama to begin with. Then again, with Notre Dame and Baylor involved, I wouldn't count out the possibility of shenanigans.

The mid-afternoon slate is full of games that could be closely contested, so maybe that's where the madness really begins. The full schedule for Thursday is listed below, with TV info and broadcast crews for each game.
