Upsets in the first round of the NCAA tourney; top brackets in the sportaholic pool

March 20, 2010

The first round of the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament ended last night with some expected–and some stunning–victories.

Most shocking so far was the Ohio and Georgetown game. Did anyone else see that coming? I think every other upset could have been predicted, so unless you are from Ohio; let me know if you chose this #14 seed over the favored #3 Beast from the East team.

Other upsets was  #13 Murray State over #4 Vanderbilt,  though this game wasn’t as big of a surprise as Murray State is a strong and athletic team and proved it with  Donero Thomas’ buzzer beating shot.

Some other upsets that weren’t as shocking were:

# 10 St. Mary’s over #7 Richmond 80-71;
#11 ODU over #6 Notre Dame; 51-50;
#11 Washington over #6 Marquette 80-78;
#12  Cornell over #5 Temple 78-65;
#10 Missouri over #7 Clemson 86-78.

In my bracket pool so far, here are the top 10 brackets:
