March Madness is in full swing and the next few days are bound to bring excitement with round 64 of the NCAA tournament.

Thursday marks the first full day of the tournament and will see several great teams going up against each other in the 15 scheduled games.

The first half of the games have already begun, but for those looking to watch the games in the evening, several high-level teams will be pitted against each other in games that will surely put on a great display of talent.

Wichita State Shockers will be playing VCU's Rams in a game that USA Today sportscaster Erik Smith predicts will go to the Shockers, despite the Rams finishing in the Final Four of last year's tournament.

Iowa State and Connecticut will also be going head to head on Thursday evening. The game will surely be a challenge, as Connecticut's Huskies took the championship last year and are not likely ready to give up their reign of power.

Indiana will be playing New Mexico State on Thursday, as Vanderbilt will be playing their best against the Harvard basketball team. A game between Gonzaga and West Virginia is also set to take place this evening.

As college basketball enthusiasts are looking forward to the upcoming rounds, experts have been busy predicting which underdog team will have its "Cinderella" moment in this year's tournament.

Fox Sports predicts that Wichita State's Shockers, the Memphis Tigers, St. Louis's Billikens, New Mexico's Lobos, and Harvard are all teams that could be the underdog story that everyone is talking about in this year's tournament.

Even our commander in chief, which is outwardly open about his fondness for the sport of basketball, has jumped on the NCAA March Madness train letting his predictions be known on EPSN Wednesday morning.

President Barack Obama predicted that North Carolina's Tar Heels would take home the 2012 championship.

Despite placing his bet on a failing team for the past two years, Obama did correctly predict that the Tar Heels would take the championship in 2009 and he is surely hoping for a repeat this year.
