NCAA Bracket Update: Early Upsets Busting March Madness Brackets

It’s been all about the upsets early in the “second round” of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. The action came fast and furious in the morning session as bracket favorites began dropping as fast as the buzzer beaters. When the dust settled, Louisville and Vanderbilt were gone, upset by Morehead State and Richmond. Kentucky also received a scare, going down to the wire with Princeton.

Though the wild action has settled a bit, the day is nowhere near over. Four games are currently underway with another session of games set to tip-off in just about an hour, including Gonzaga and St. John’s.

Currently in progress:

Florida is all over UC Santa Barbara late.
Wisconsin holds a five-point edge over Belmont early in the second.
UConn is cruising, up big on Bucknell midway through the second.
BYU holds a seven-point advantage over Wofford midway through the second.

Here’s a look at the bracket as it stands now. For a neat and tidy look, check out SB Nation’s printable NCAA Tournament bracket.
