It's the second day of the NCAA tournament's second round, and if it's anything like the first day, expect upsets, overtimes, and big games from some future NBA superstars.

It's also possible that those same NBA superstars could be . . . Celtics superstars. Yes, with the C's destined for the lottery and a Top 10 pick (hopefully Top 5?) in this year's NBA draft, there's plenty of reason to keep a close eye on the going-ons of this year's tournament.
