I did this the last couple years so here we go.
Let's go through some suprise upsets the first round this year.
Obviously we're going to have to start with #4 Louisville and #13 Morehead State. Who would've guessed? A 3 with the clock winding down, ended Louisville's suprise season. Right after that, #5 Vanderbilt fell to #12 Richmond. But where were the day two upsets everyone was predicting well they didn't come. Wisconsin avoided another upset. Oakland couldn't put down another game against a top team. What about Indiana State and Syracuse, or Utah State and Kansas State? They just didn't pull through this year.
So with out further delay I present to you the Upset Meter Round 1 2011:
#11 Marquette over #6 Xavier
#9 Illinois over #8 UNLV
#12 Richmond over #5 Vanderbilt
#13 Morehead State over #4 Louisville
#11 VCU over #6 Georgetown
#10 Florida State over #7 Texas A&M
#11 Gonzaga over #6 St. John's
That is 7 first round upsets.
