12 North Dakota State’s proficient offense was too much to handle for the 5th seeded Sooners, who lost a tough 80-75 game in OT.
Friday continued the stunning upsets with 14 seeded Mercer defeating the 3rd seeded Duke Blue Devils 78-71. 10 Stanford continued with a 58-53 upset of 7th seeded New Mexico.
11 Tennessee one in the First Four and then went on to upset Massachusetts 86-67, and 12 Stephen F. Austin defeated 5 VCU 77-75 in OT.
The Third Round continued the upsets with the 11th seeded Dayton Flyers defeating 3 Syracuse, whom had not one but TWO opportunites by freshman Tyler Ennis to tie the game or take the lead at the end. 
The 7th seeded Huskies were able to upset 2 Villanova later that day, and 10 Stanford did it again and upset the 2nd seeded Jayhawks led by freshman phenom Andrew Wiggins 60-57.
8 Kentucky gave the 1st seeded Wichita State Shockers their FIRST loss all year, 78-76. Fred Van Vleet was inches from continuing Wichita States perfect season, but it just wasn’t enough.
