With the wacky tournament we have had up to this point, Louisville losing second round, Pitt getting beat, Richmond upsetting Vandy, we could expect it to continue into the Sweet 16, and it did. Duke loses to Arizona, Wisconsin loses to Butler, BYU lost in overtime to Florida, UConn upset SDSU, craziness, 3 of 4 games played so far in the Sweet 16 have been upsets.

Now only 2 #1 seeds remain, Kansas and Ohio St. and both have the opportunity to lose tonight. Kansas has by far the easiest road to the Final Four, only having to beat double-digit seeds. Ohio St., the #1 overall seed, looks to be dominant against a freshmen dominated Kentucky team.

This NCAA Tournament is shaping up to be one of the weirdest in recent memory, thanks to those upsets, that have left the nation without a perfect bracket, except the one that is filled out as the games are completed. Thank you basketball Gods for giving us entertainment that exceeded anyones thoughts.

Ok, the tournament has only just begun, but here are some updates:

  1.  Butler knocked off ODU with a buzzer beating put back, off of a  tripped drive thrown up air ball,
  2.  West Virginia battled back from a  10 point deficit against Clemson to win the game 84-76,
  3.  Kentucky beat Princeton on a last second lay up,
  4.  Gonzaga decimated St. Johns 86-71,
  5. Morehead St. pulled off a major upset in their 1 point victory of Louisville,
  6. Temple knocked off Penn St. with a jumper with little time left on the clock,
  7. Richmond pulled off the upset against Vandy, to win by 3,
  8. #1 seed Pitt easily won against UNC-Asheville,
  9. Both #2 seeds Florida and San Diego St. won their games handily,
  10. Jimmer Fredette went for 32 against Wofford, to lead BYU to the victory,
  11. UConn and Kemba beat Bucknell to advance,
  12. Wisconsin easily won against Belmont, 72-58,
  13. Michigan St.’s run came up short as they rallied from a 18 point half time deficit, to lose by 2 to UCLA,
  14. Cincy came up with the big win against Mizzou,
  15. Kansas St. led by Jacob Pullen, beat a dangerous Utah St. team,

That was a recap of the first day, it is now the second day, and we get to wait and see what upsets will go down today. My bracket was shaken up by the Louisville loss, I had them beating Kansas in the Sweet 16, so who knows what will happen now.

Comment on what you think is the biggest upset of the second round is.
