NCAA Tournament Round of 64 proves to be Upset City

- Biggest upset: No. 11 Dayton over No. 6 Ohio State. This game began the 2014 NCAA tournament with a BANG. The Flyers shocked the Buckeyes on last minute Vee Sanford jumper. Sanford graduated high school from Lexington Catholic where he was first team All-Kentucky according to the Courier-Journal. Last year, he transferred to Dayton from Georgetown.
- Safest bet: No. 3 Syracuse defeated No. 14 Western Michigan easily 77-53 in the second round game. The 24-point victory was the largest margin of the day, and the Orange never really let the Broncos hang around in the game, controlling the game from the outset.
- Closest call: While the defending national champs Louisville made a great case for this nomination waiting to turn on the boom until the under 4 minute mark, the No. 7 Texas Longhorns take the cake with Cameron Ridley’s layup to give UT the 87-85 win over No. 10 Arizona State. Ridley got his shot off just as time expired, sparing the Longhorns and the Sun Devils overtime.
