The quest for the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship continues!

In the third round of March Madness, it's the result of two upsets. The Tennessee Volunteers, who beat out UMass in their second-round matchup (and Iowa in their play-in game), will be going head-to-head with the Mercer Bears, who pulled away with a major upset victory over No. 3 Duke.

Tennessee took charge against UMass, winning 86-67. Junior Jarnell Stokes was the player of the game; he scored 26 points and had 14 rebounds for the Vols.

Meanwhile, Mercer, who won its first tournament game in school history, defeated Duke 78-71 in the biggest upset thus far in the tourney. Senior Jakob Gollon led the way with 20 points and five rebounds for the Bears.

Can the Bears be this year's Cinderella team? Or will Tennessee keep its win streak alive?
