Oregon plays the overall top seed in Louisville; No. 1 seeds are 21 0 all time against double digit seeds in the Sweet 16. FGCU plays No. 3 Florida; No. 3 seeds are 6 4. At this point, Air Max Green Army I wouldn't count out FGCU against anyone, but with a few days to prepare, the Eagles are not going to sneak up on anyone this weekend.
The word I would use is lucky. But in fact, that might not even be enough to cover what someone who has a perfect bracket just did. Anyone who picked this year's Sweet 16 correctly is probably hanging out with the unicorns.
In many ways, this hasn't been a normal tournament.
If you prefer the chalk, the whole East Region is for you this weekend. The top four seeds all advanced, and aside from No. 12 California's win over UNLV in the first round, there Air Max Vt3
If you want an underdog that's got a chance to make it out of this weekend, look at No. 6 Arizona in the West.
But for a while, particularly after the first round, it was pure madness. While No. 16s Southern and Western Kentucky put up a good fight, the four 16s were the only seeds that didn't win at least one game. The most common upset first round upset is a 12 winning over a 5, and it happened three times this year, although two of those teams Oregon (Pac 12) and Ole Miss (SEC) were both conference tournament champions.
That region was deemed the weakest of the four, and that seems to have held true. Ohio State is the only top seed left, and the Buckeyes needed some late game heroics to get by No. 10 Iowa State on Sunday.
As you've probably heard by now, FGCU is only the seventh team seeded 15th to beat a No. 2 seed, and the first to make the Sweet 16. La Salle is only the 30th team seeded 13th to win a game. And with No. 12 Oregon and No. 9 Wichita State also still alive, the average seed of remaining teams is a tick over five (5.06).
There is only way to describe someone who has made it to the second weekend of this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament with a bracket intact.
And to think, with La Salle and Wichita State playing each other, one is going to be in the Elite Eight.
There are more than 8 million completed brackets in ESPN's Tournament Challenge, and not one Nike Air Max 95 X Stussy
As for the others? It doesn't look good.
But it hasn't been upsets across the board. Three No. 1s still remain, although for a game and a half, Kansas appeared to be doing its best not to advance. Indiana didn't look too good either against No. 9 Temple on Sunday, but the Hoosiers are still alive, as are No. 2s Miami and Ohio State (barely), along with Duke.
So what's in store for this weekend? Well, we know for sure there will be at least one Cinderella (the La Salle Wichita State winner) in the Elite Eight. If La Salle is the winner, it would become just the 15th double digit seed since 1979 to reach the regional semifinals and the first 13 seed.
has the Sweet 16 picked correctly. Only four of those 8 million plus brackets at ESPN had 15 out of the 16 teams.
It's not genius. It's not expert. It's not superfan either. It might be psychic, but I doubt anyone who claims to be clairvoyant could have done this well.
weren't any surprises.
So don't feel bad if you didn't have Florida Gulf Coast or La Salle playing in the second weekend. Nike Air Max 95 Jacquard Red
