2013 NCAA Tournament Video: Top 5 Takeaways From Thursday Night
5. Pac-12 Conference Rolls- On Thursday, the Pac-12 had a monster day as the No. 6 Arizona, No. 12 Oregon and No. 12 California all won their second round games. The Pac-12 became the first conference to have two 12 seeds both advance through the second round in NCAA Tournament history. Looking ahead to day two of the Big Dance, it’s your move UCLA and Colorado.
4. Gonzaga Survives- No. 1 Gonzaga avoided history on Thursday afternoon, as the Bulldogs were able to hold off No. 16 Southern by six. The game was kept close throughout its 40 minutes, so credit Southern University. Gonzaga did survive thanks to some late shots, so the story line is just more of the same; No. 16 seed has ever beaten a No. 1.
3. Davidson Stunned Late- No. 14 Davidson had everything lined up the way that they wanted to. The Wildcats were up eight with less than two minutes to go and the Marquette Golden Eagles were being held under 50 points. Then the wheels came off and Marquette threatened to steal victory. Well, they did steal victory when Vander Blue drove left and scored late, stunning Davidson’s upset bid.
2. Syracuse/VCU Beat Downs- On Thursday night, VCU’s “Havoc” defense stifled Akron. I mean, they really stifled them. It was 50-25 at halftime. The Rams ended up winning by 46 points, which set the NCAA Tournament record for best margin of victory over a team seed 3 or higher. Then Syracuse and Montana tipped. The Orange won by 47, snapping VCU’s NCAA record less than two hours later.
1. Harvard Steals the Show- The biggest takeaway from day one of the NCAA Tournament was the bracket’s largest upset to date. No. 14 Harvard stole the show, stunning No. 3 New Mexico who had considered a legitimate Elite 8 and Final Four selection. We will see if the Cinderella shoe fits the Crimson when they take on No. 6 Arizona on Saturday.
