The NCAA tournament begins in earnest today. One Pac-12 team has already been eliminated from the postseason. And we still have a bracket pool for you to join. Links …

— This is your final reminder to register for the TNT Bracket Challenge before the games tipoff today. It’s free to enter, and the prize is a $50 gift card to a restaurant of your choice.

— Oregon State’s stay in the CBI was a short one, as the Beavers were upset at home by Radford (it’s in Virginia, I checked), 96-92. The announced attendance: 1,351. Yikes.

— California advanced to the second round of the NIT with a 77-64 victory over Utah Valley.

Three Pac-12 teams are in action in the NCAA tournament today …

— No. 8 seed Colorado is first up, playing against No. 9 seed Pittsburgh in Orlando (10:40 a.m., TBS). Rebounding will be key for the Buffaloes.

— No. 7 seed Oregon is up next, taking on No. 10 seed Brigham Young in Milwaukee (12:10 p.m., truTV). The trip is a homecoming for one Oregon player.

— No. 10 seed Arizona State also plays tonight, against No. 7 seed Texas in Milwaukee (6:40 p.m., CBS).

Here’s the full schedule of games today.

— President Barack Obama made his annual NCAA tournament picks. He’s got Michigan State winning it all.
