Winthrop pulled out a win against Notre Dame (74-64), which is probably an upset in seeding only (11 over 6). The past two years, as 14 & 15 seeds, Winthrop lost by a combined 12 points, including last year's loss at the buzzer to Tennessee.
Albany, however, wasn't so fortunate. A year after battling 1 seed Connecticut in the first round, the Great Danes ran into a buzzsaw named J.R. Reynolds. The Virginia guard made his first 7 shots, including his first four 3-point shots. The Cavaliers raced out to a 21-4 lead and never looked back, winning 84-57.
In the first 5 vs. 12 game, Tennessee only has 107 points with 4 minutes left, holding a 25 point lead over Long Beach State. Meanwhile, 2 seed Wisconsin found themselves down 10-0 four minutes into their game against 15 seed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Down 25-7 at one point, Wisconsin still trails, 40-33, with 14 minutes left.
