Best Player: Stephen Curry, Davidson. Curry scored 70 points against Gonzaga and Georgetown, and he scored them against defenses geared to stop him. Curry is a pro.

Most Exciting Game: Drake vs. Western Kentucky. While I disliked seeing two good mid-majors go against each other in the first round, it provided the most interesting game of the first round. Both teams made shots from every logo on the floor, and both teams fought their guts out.
