Another day, another opportunity for incredible March Madness upsets.
A day after five teams seeded no higher than 12 won their opening-round games, we saw three more shocking results in Sunday’s opening slate of Round 2 games. Eight-seed Loyola Chicago manhandled 1-seed Illinois, 11-seed Syracuse outlasted 3-seed West Virginia, 15-seed Oral Roberts became only the second team on its seed line to make the Sweet 16 and 12-seed Oregon State continued its Cinderella run past 4-seed Oklahoma State.
What awaits NCAA Tournament fans on Monday? There are plenty of interesting matchups, starting with 7-seed Oregon playing its first game of the tournament against 2-seed Iowa and Sporting News Player of the Year Luka Garza. Then top overall seed Gonzaga can sharpen its teeth on 8-seed Oklahoma, which gutted out a strong win against Missouri with key players missing.
Eight-seed LSU vs. 1-seed Michigan could be the most closely contested game — and most consequential — but keep an eye on 5-seed Colorado vs. 4-seed Florida State as well. Then there’s 10-seed Maryland vs. 2-seed Alabama.
It all should make for an exciting conclusion to the NCAA Tournament’s opening weekend. Sporting News has everything you need to watch every single game. Here’s how to tune in:
