What an NCAA Tournament so far!Two of the four one seeds are out.Two of the four two seeds have been eliminated.
What has made this NCAA Tournament CRAZY?
Cinderalla of the Tournament?Maybe Not
Loyola Chicago has been this years’ cinderella story by beating Miami and then beating Tennessee.Loyola beat those two teams bya combined two points.When you really think about it though,Loyal Chicago is not a cinderella story-really-they went to Gainesville and knocked of Florida,and are a great team on both sides of the ball.They will meet Nevada after Nevada came from behind twenty-two points to upset two-seed Cincinnati.
Two Seeds Out
As I just mentioned,seven-seeded Nevada came back from twenty-two points to beat two seed Cincinnati.Another seven seed,Texas A&M,cruised to a victory over veteran-led and two-seeded North Carolina,86-65.Duke and Purdue,the other two,two seeds are still in,though.
Wait a minute…There are one seed(s) out too?
Yes.The biggest upset of all-time happened in the Round of sixty-four this past Friday night when sixteen-seed UMBC defeated number one overall seed Virginia seventy-four to fifty-four.UMBC did not just beat Virginia-they crushed them.UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County) became the first sixteen seed to beat a one seed in the round of sixty-four,just to lose a fifty to forty-three score game to undermanned and nine-seeded Kansas State.Xavier lost in the round of thirty-two when nine-seeded Florida State made a mini comeback to defeat Xavier 75-70.Kansas and Villanova,the other two one seeds are still in,though.
