What an opening round! The number three seed in the Midwest Region, Georgetown was upset by the 14 seed Ohio University. This was by far the biggest upset of the opening round. As expected all four number one seeds made it to the round of 32 and did so in dominating fashion. Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and Syracuse won by an average margin of about 24 points.
The star of the first round was Jimmer Fredette of BYU, who scored 37 points in a 99-92 victory over Florida. The under performer of the tournament was Louisville senior Edgar Sosa. Sosa scored only 8 points and had 3 turnovers in a 77-62 loss to the Cal Golden Bears.
Be back soon with a second round recap.
