NCAA Tournament 2014: Winners and Losers of Day 5
Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

No overtimes? No 40-point games?  

Man, Saturday was slacking. 

OK, maybe Thursday and Friday left us a bit greedy, but the third day of the tournament (play-in days do not qualify) didn't exactly live up to to the precedent that had been set. 

There was a bit too much defense and too much sloppiness—Saint Louis and Louisville, my eyes are still hurting—but Oregon-Wisconsin, John Beilein, Shabazz Napier and Xavier Thames made up for it with some visually-pleasing performances. 

And we almost got another buzzer-beater, only Mr. Clutch, Tyler Ennis, ran out of magic. Dayton and Sean Miller's little brother were cool with that. The Flyers were a big winner and the first double-digit seed to move on to the Sweet 16. 

Let's take a look at the other winners and losers on this not-quite-epic Saturday.
