"We don't play until Friday, but we leave on Tuesday and plan on being on the road at least until Sunday," says Michael Culpo, LIU-Brooklyn senior who's playing in his second straight NCAA tournament this week. 16 seeded LIU faces the #1 seed in their region Michigan State in their opening game as they attempt to pull off what's never been done before - a 16 seed defeating a 1 seed. Just in case the impossible happens on Friday, Culpo is packed for two games.

This is everything LIU-Brooklyn guard and March Madness-bound Michael Culpo needs for five days on the road:

1 pair of Adidas game shoes

1 pair of Nike sneakers

2 practice jerseys

2 pairs of practice shorts

2 game jerseys

2 pairs of game shorts

1 pair of casual dress shoes

1 pair of jeans 

1 nice shirt

2 sets of warm-ups

1 belt

1 MacBook Pro

At least 8 pairs of game socks

Tons of underwear
