Upset No. 1: (13) Morehead Beats (4) Louisville

I really hate when people espouse cliches like "tear up your brackets," but your bracket is kind of messed up now. Of course, just about no one in your pools picked Morehead, so it's just a matter of how far you had Louisville going.

Which doesn't matter because what's important is awesome moments, and that was an awesome moment. If Morehead was going to win, Kenneth Faried was going to have to dominate the boards. How does 17 rebounds sound? It sounds like an upset, that's what it sounds like. And that's what he had. Terrance Hill scored 23, and Demonte Harper was 1-6 from beyond the arc, but the one gave his team the lead with 3.2 seconds left. Faried capped it off with a clean block of  Mike Marra on the game winning attempt (good job, by the way, refs), and Louisville is gone.

Around these parts, J.P. Starkey and Liam Ponting benefit the most, as they had Louisville going down Saturday, anyway. Everyone else had them falling in the Sweet 16, which isn't the worst loss.

And then I had them going to the title game to try and be unique and interesting. Rule one of NCAA Tournament picking: don't try and be interesting.

Oh well, I'll take it, because that game was awesome. I wish I'd watched more of Faried this year.

UPDATE: Liam and J.P. both had Vandy making the Sweet 16 though, so all's even now.

Except for me.
