With four games still to be completed, the NCAA tournament's round of 64 has never had this many games go to overtime.

When Stephen F. Austin made an improbable rally to force OT against VCU in San Diego, it was the fifth overtime game of what is now called the second round.

SFA went on to beat VCU 77-75.

On Thursday night, four round-of-64 games went into overtime to set a record for one NCAA tournament day.

The last of those 16 games - San Diego State's victory against New Mexico State - broke the previous mark.

Before that, North Dakota State upset Oklahoma, Saint Louis beat North Carolina State and Connecticut beat Saint Joseph's.

The final game of the First Four also went to overtime Wednesday, when Tennessee beat Iowa.
