North Carolina State upsets Villanova

How many of you had this upset in your brackets?  I didn’t.

Free throws was the difference in Pittsburgh.  Last year, it cost the Wolfpack a trip to the Sweet 16.  This year, they’re going to Syracuse after a stunning 71-68 victory over top seed Villanova.

Historical fact, the last time they beat a number 1 seed was not once, but twice under Jim Valvano in the Cardiac Kids year of 1983:

Virginia led by Ralph Sampson in the Elite Eight and Phi Slama Jamma of Houston in the title game.

I will review some of the other highlights from the other 7 games later tonight.
