NCAA Tournament Scores 2011 Dives Into the Upset of the Day So Far

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have our first big upset of the tournament. 13-seed Morehead State found a way to knock off four-seed Louisville in a classic.

The Eagles, out of the Ohio Valley Conference, used 23 huge points from Terrence Hill and a cold-blooded three from Demonte Harper with just 4.2 seconds left to get past a good Louisville team.

The other guy I was very impressed with was Kenneth Faried.

The 6'8" post player, who is headed to the NBA in a few months, had 12 points and 17 huge rebounds. He also hit two clutch free throws to give the Eagles a chance to win the game late.

Sure, Faried didn’t have the most dominating offensive game this year, but he did tie Ralph Samson on the all-time double-double list.

While this is the first upset of the tournament, you can bet it won’t be the only one. However, we will be looking through the impact of this game going forward; how it changes the face of the Southwest bracket, and how it could possibly change Louisville going forward.

Stay tuned here for updates on this game going forward.

Let us know what you think of this upset. Is it one of the all-time greats? How does it affect your bracket?
