The bracket is in tatters following the conclusion of Sunday's second-round action at the 2018 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. For just the first time in history, two top seeds are out before the Sweet 16 after Xavier's loss to Florida State put the the Musketeers on the sidelines along with Virginia. No. 2s North Carolina and Cincinnati and No. 3 Michigan State also failed to advance on Sunday, while UMBC's dream run came to an end in a nail-biter against Kansas State.

    As many have said, this is the 4th tournament (1981, 2000, 2004) that two #1 seeds failed to reach the Sweet 16. FSU's win over Xavier improved the No. 9 seeds' record to 7-60 all-time versus No. 1 seeds.

    Xavier fouls, and C.J. Walker goes to the line for the Seminoles.

    No time outs left on either side—and FSU intercepts the inbounds pass. Game Over!

    P.J. Savoy makes two free throws, and Xavier can't get a good shot away in the dying seconds.

    Airball by Kanter with 11 seconds to go. Possession goes to FSU as time out is called with seven seconds left.

    Another huge upset looks imminent!

  18. Clock Icon3:04 am

    Do upsets breed more upsets?

    If Xavier goes down, only two of four top seeds and two of four No. 2s will make it to the Sweet 16.

    Guys, Kansas State now looks poised to pull the upset. The Wildcats have found a way to score and have put together a 7-0 run for their first lead. UMBC now trails 15-14 and Ryan Odom calls timeout to settle the Retrievers.

  58. Clock Icon12:24 am

    Can Auburn draw some inspiration from that Nevada comeback?

    The Tigers' hole is only a little deeper and they have more time—the second half will be starting soon.
