Index was outside of bounds of array when reading in excel range to VB.NET array

For some reason I am getting an index out of range exception and I am not sure why.  I am reading in an excel worksheet that has 5 rows and 4 columns.  The value in the first cell (A1) is 1.

When I am debugging I can see the value in my array but when I try to display the value in the message box I get the 'Index was outside the bounds of the array.' exception.

Any ideas?

 
Dim objApp As New Excel.Application
        Dim objBook As Excel.Workbook
        Dim objSheet As Excel.Worksheet
        Try
            objBook = objApp.Workbooks.Open(Application.StartupPath & "\Book1.xlsx")
            objSheet = objBook.Worksheets(1)

            Dim range As Excel.Range
            Dim usedRows As Integer = objSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
            Dim usedColumns As Integer = objSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count
            range = objSheet.Range("A1").Resize(usedRows, usedColumns)

            Dim Day1Info(,) As Object
            Day1Info = range.Value
            MsgBox(Day1Info(0, 0).ToString)

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        Finally
            objApp.Quit()
        End Try

Should that not be:
MsgBox(Day1Info(1, 1).ToString)
