Shaka is Smarting! and Some Other Notes

In an epic finish, SF Austin became the tournament’s third #12 seed to sneak into the Round of 32. With a 4 point lead and under 10 seconds, VCU managed to foul a three point shooter, which in-turn forced overtime. The 12th seeded Lumberjacks continued their pesky ways in the extra session and came up with a big victory. I would not be shocked to SF Austin knock of UCLA (or Tulsa) in their next game.

Other upsets today included:
#14 Mercer over Duke… Which lets be honest, made 99% of America happy, even if it ruined many brackets!
#11 Tennessee destroyed #6 UMass. Only an upset in seeds. UT was clearly the better team.
#10 Stanford over #7 New Mexico… This one surprised me. I really liked the UNM team to be a sleeper. Oh well, my brackets have been destroyed since mid-day on Thursday.

Other interesting games were Kansas vs EKU and UNC vs Providence.  Kansas needed all 40 minutes to escape Eastern Kentucky, which would have been an even bigger upset than Duke. In the UNC game, Providence was quite pesky. It was up tempo and a lot of up-and-down hoops… Very fun to watch. In the end, UNC’s talent edge prevailed.

As I’m sure you are all aware, #1 seed Virginia is trying to make some history at the moment (in a very bad way). We’ll see if they can get it together… or if Coastal Carolina can pull off the unthinkable!
