ATLANTA, GA - MARCH 11: The North Carolina Tar Heels react in the final seconds of their 85-82 loss to the Florida State Seminoles.

After an entertaining series of Friday openers, some of the biggest names in college hoops complete the afternoon schedule during the second all-out day of the NCAA Tournament.

The Tar Heels of North Carolina and the Georgetown Hoyas both get their first taste of March Madness in 2012. Not against each other, of course. Top-seeded UNC hopes their first game against Vermont goes more like Kentucky vs. Western Kentucky than Syracuse vs. UNC-Asheville.

The Hoyas, on the other hand, are facing a Belmont team that is a trendy upset pick. Another top team looking to avoid being toppled is the Missouri Tigers. Will Norfolk State be able to keep up with the frenetic pace set by Mizzou?

The Florida State Seminoles earned their No. 3 seed by upsetting high-ranking teams -- UNC and Duke, twice each -- and winning the ACC Tournament. But they'll be on the other side of the point spread today as they face St. Bonaventure.

Stay tuned for live updates from all four games:
