We are down to 32 teams, and thus far, the lack of real drama or noteworthy upsets has some fans a little down. There has been plenty to like thus far, but casual fans may have to look a little deeper.
In the first round, five double-digit seeds won games, including three of the four No. 11 seeds. The only No. 6 seed to win was Cincinnati over Kansas State. Meanwhile, Wichita State and Middle Tennessee also won first round games, but neither was a surprise (or, dare I say, a Shocker?) There were none that get people talking, like a 14 or 15 seed winning, while none of the 16 seeds got closer than 20 points.
