Sadly, at least for Michigan State fans, the Spartans have been knocked out of the NCAA tournament by Louisville. Michigan State is the first No. 1 seed to fall in the tournament, but both Kentucky and North Carolina could take the plunge this evening if all doesn't go according to plan. Three double-digit seeds will be looking to end some tournament dreams early and keep the clock from striking midnight on their own personal Cinderella stories, but will we see any more upsets in the second half of the Sweet 16?
(1) Kentucky vs. (4) Indiana
Kentucky has run roughshod over its first two opponents, while Indiana barely survived a scare against VCU.
(1) North Carolina vs. (13) Ohio
No. 13 Ohio is the lowest-ranked team still remaining, having upset both Michigan and South Florida in the first two rounds.
(2) Kansas vs. (11) NC State
Both NC State and Kansas survived close games in the round of 32 -- NC State upset Georgetown 66-63, while Kansas eked out a 63-60 win against Purdue.
(3) Baylor vs. (10) Xavier
Baylor and Xavier are coming off of big wins in the round of 32, a far cry from the close games they won in the round of 64.
