After four exciting days of college basketball, the 68-team field of the 2014 NCAA men's basketball tournament has been reduced to just 16 schools. Here are five things we learned from the tournament's first weekend:
Minnesota gets the overall #1 seed but 5 of the 16 teams in the NCAA Tournament field come from Hockey East. That's the most of any college hockey conference. Boston College gets one of the four #1 seeds.
Top seeded Florida had no problems advancing to the sweet 16 on day three of the NCAA tournament, but the same cannot be said for #2 Villanova and #3 Syracuse who were both eliminated. The Cindarella North Dakota State Bison had their run stopped by San Diego State
Former UMaine coaches Joanne P. McCallie and Sharon Versyp led their teams to NCAA opening round wins Saturday in the NCAA women's basketball tournament. McCallie's #2 seeded Duke team beat #15 Winthrop 85-47
UPDATE: #14 Mercer upsets #3 Duke 78-71 in the biggest upset of the tourney so far. The Bears put together a late game 20-5 run against the Blue Devils. Mercer got into the NCAA field by winning the Atlantic Sun Conference championship.
