Day 1 of the NCAA March Madness Tournament saw plenty of upsets, which definitely shattered some brackets of fans and analysts everywhere. Sixteen teams punched their tickets through to the round of 32, while the other 16 went home with crushed dreams.

In what is arguably one of the most unpredictable days in tournament history, the “madness” in March Madness held up to the hype. And it came in the form of upsets – two of them were the No. 14 seed over the No. 3 seed as Georgia State topped Baylor in the West region and UAB knocked off Iowa State in the South bracket – and close games. In fact, NCAA Tournament history was made Thursday, March 19 as five games were decided by just 1 point, which is the most ever in a single day in the tournament. Those games included Cincinnati over Purdue, 66-65, UAB over Iowa State, 60-59, UCLA over SMU, 60-59, and NC State over LSU, 66-65.

What’s even crazier is Day 2 is just beginning. So there’s plenty more games – and probably an upset or two – to be had.
