Three games down, no upsets. And although one game doesn't mean as much as some "experts" would have you believe - if you win, it doesn't automatically justify your inclusion in the tournament, and a loss doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't have been included - Stanford tried to show that they didn't deserve to be invited to the dance. It's never good when you lose by 20 and it can be said that the game wasn't nearly as close as the score indicates. Less than 15 minutes into the first half, 6th-seeded Louisville was leading Stanford, the 11th seed, 41-13. Ouch. Louisville led by as many as 33 in the second half.
