NCAA Tournament LIVE SCORES, UPDATES: Michigan vs. VCU, Michigan State vs. Memphis

The madness continues with the round of 32.

The third round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament opens with a blockbuster matchup between the precocious No. 4 Michigan Wolverines and the tenacious No. 5 VCU Rams, who set a tournament record for the most lopsided victory by a team seeded third or lower with a 46-point win over Akron (until Syracuse broke it later that night).

Another Big Ten powerhouse is in action after that, with No. 3 Michigan State, who out-muscled Valparaiso in its tournament opener, taking on No. 6 Memphis. The Tigers barely staved off elimination with a narrow win over No. 13 Saint Mary's.

Will Derrick Nix and the Spartans be able to overpower the athletic Tigers squad? Will VCU's "havoc" defense stifle Trey Burke and the Wolverines?
