Normally the No. 4 seed does not sweat the first round too much. It is pretty rare that the No. 4 is beaten by the No. 13. However, with two No. 14's all ready pulling out wins against their No. 3 seeds Thursday teams are on alert.

Tyler Adams had a lot of promise coming in to Georgetown, but four games in to his career with the Hoyas he had to stop playing. A heart condition put an early end to his time on the court. He remained on the team as a student-coach of sorts, but playing always had to be in the back of his mind. Saturday, after the team secured a waiver from the NCAA, he was able to do just that...

Time is running out in a season in which ''start,'' ''stop'' and ''reset'' became more than just buttons to press during a practice drill.
