We are only two days into the NCAA Men’s Tournament, but following No. 16 seed FDU’s upset of No. 1 seed Purdue on Friday evening, there are no longer any fantastic brackets remaining on FDU’s win was just the second 16-1 upset in NCAA Men’s Tournament history. 

And even just before that huge upset, getting into Friday’s NCAA Tournament action, only .002 % of the brackets on had been fantastic.

That percentage really dropped to .001% when No. three seed Xavier narrowly held on to beat No. 14 Kennesaw State, 72-67. But in reality, it is not specifically shocking that zero fantastic brackets stay, provided the quantity of chaos that Day 1 of March Madness ended up generating.

Thursday’s two most significant upsets came in the South Area.

In just the second game to tip off, No. 13 seed Furman was in a position to take down No. four seed Virginia in what was a single of the most shocking endings in current memory. In the final seconds, Virginia’s Kihei Clark was trapped by the Furman defense and attempted to heave the ball down the court in an work to run out the clock. Having said that, Furman was in a position to intercept Clark’s pass and JP Pegues connected on a game-winning 3 with just two.two seconds left to give the Paladins the 68-67 upset victory.

Later on Thursday afternoon, brackets had been additional busted when No. two Arizona was upended by No. 15 seed Princeton 59-55. It was a tight contest all through, as the Tigers only trailed by a single point at halftime regardless of facing the Pac 12 Tournament champions. Arizona raced out to a 51-41 lead with eight minutes to go, but Princeton did not throw in the towel. As an alternative, the Tigers completed the game on a 9- run and kept the Wildcats scoreless more than the final four:44 of the contest
