Well, if that wasn't interesting
After a great deal of hullabaloo, after quite the hubbub, it was revealed to us exactly why Missouri was the 8th over all seed. Many thought that the Tigers should have been a 1 seed, based on their strong conference record, and their work outside the conference. Well, so much for that. Lowly Norfolk State out of the MEAC outlasted the Tigers.
In another region, the South Region, the highly esteemed, greatly ballyhooed Duke Blue Devils were the two seed. They had some issues as well, and haven't been as strong as they're historically known to be. The suddenly invigorated Lehigh Mountain Hawks decided to take this tournament up a notch, unseated Duke.
That's right, two 15 seeds won today There have only been 4 to make that mark through the entire history of the tournament.
Yesterday, Thursday, was very boring. Only two upsets, with VCU and Colorado winning their games. Today was insane. In addition to Lehigh and Norfolk State, Ohio beat Michigan, North Carolina State beat San Diego State and South Florida will likely beat Temple.
Oh, and Purdue beat St. Mary's. March Madness, baby!
