March Madness 2014 Tournament – Biggest Upsets So Far

0 Comments

March Madness has been underway all week and we have as of recently seen some wild bombshells in what has been an insane initial three days. What’s more the thing is, it likely isn’t over yet as we head towards the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight. Get primed for a wild ride whatever remains of the route with parts more underdogs getting the money for on the wagering lines.

March Madness 2014 No. 12 Stephen F. Austin Over No. 5 VCU -VCU has earned some credit over the last couple years with solid Tournament performances, and they were once the underdog. But this time, they were bitten by a four-point play at the end of regulation against Stephen F. Austin, who went on to edge the Rams 77-75 in overtime. Desmond Haymon sent the game to OT and dropped 17 points for the Lumberjacks, who overcame 16 turnovers by shooting 52.9% from the field while making 10 more free throws than VCU, the third No. 12 seed to go down over the first few days of the Tournament.

No. 14 Mercer Over No. 3 Duke – The Atlantic Sun champions from Mercer assumed the four-time national champs from Duke and ambushed the Blue Devils from the opening tip, setting out away with a 76-71 win in a score line that really complimented Duke. The Bears shot a rankling 55.6% from the field while holding Duke to 35.5%, and Duke star first year recruit Jabari Parker had only 14 focuses as he battled with foul inconvenience all diversion, despite the fact that he did include seven bounce back. The Blue Devils have now been disposed of in the first adjust (in fact, the second adjust, yet we all comprehend what it is) in two of the most recent three years. Remember, the amusement was in Raleigh, which is Duke nation.

No. 12 North Dakota State Over No. 5 Oklahoma -Another No. 5 seed lost in overtime as the Sooners were rolled over by NDSU by a score of 80-75. Lawrence Alexander had the game of his life, pouring in 28 points, shooting 10-of-15 from the field and his three-pointer with 11 seconds remaining gave the Bison a lifeline. Cameron Clark fought back with 25 points for the Sooners, who shot just 34.7% from the floor and couldn’t take advantage of 15 turnovers by NDSU, who nailed 20 of their 22 free-throw attempts and never looked out of place against Oklahoma, yet another team that fell to the 12-5 curse of the NCAA Tournament.

No. 11 Dayton Over No. 3 Syracuse – Dayton’s win over Ohio State wasn’t a correct irritated as the Buckeyes have been here and there all season. Anyhow despite the fact that Syracuse had issues down the stretch, they were still a contender to win everything… until they ran into the Flyers, who crushed the Orangemen 55-53 in Buffalo before an ace Syracuse. The way to whipping ‘Cuse is hitting outside shots against the zone, and the Flyers were 7-of-16 from past the curve, while Syracuse missed each of the 10 of their three-point endeavors. Outside of Tyler Ennis and C.j. Reasonable (who joined together to shoot 11-of-35 from the field), Syracuse didn’t get anything and now Dayton is headed toward the Sweet Sixteen.
