Welcome to the second round of Page 2's Coolest Name in the 2011 NCAA Tournament bracket.

To review: Page 2 is entrusting you, dear readers, with selecting the coolest player name in the 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Our criteria for the best name is similar to how Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart described obscenity in 1964 -- you know it when you see it. A great basketball name should be fun to say, fun to spell or cool and unusual.

The Uwe Blab region played out mostly true to form, with the exception of No. 10 seed Martavious Irving of Kansas State easing past No. 7 Emmanuel Okoroba of Hampton.

There were two large upsets in the Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje region, as No. 15 seed Bubba Day of Purdue dominated No. 2 Brockeith Pane of Utah State, and No. 13 Trian Iliadis of Old Dominion stunned No. 4 Chauncey Gilliam of Akron.

Now that our field has been whittled from 64 to 32 player names from this year's NCAA tournament field, Page 2 invites you to vote in the second round of the Coolest Name in the 2011 NCAA Tournament bracket.

Vote in the Uwe Blab and Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje regions at the bottom of this page, and use the links below to vote in the other regions and check complete results.

Second-round voting ends Monday at 10 p.m. ET. Check back Tuesday to vote in the third round.
