NCAA March Madness is fully underway as the tournament has officially reached the Sweet 16. There are plenty of awesome storylines to watch out for and there have been plenty of upsets.
St. Peter’s has stolen the show so far, but teams like Iowa St., Miami, and Michigan have made their way to the Sweet 16, too. Anything can happen at this point and almost every game has been electric.
NBA Draft: Drew Timme improving stock in March Madness
With how well some of the lower seeds have been playing, the Elite Eight, Final Four, and finals of the tournament could be made up of a bunch of underdogs.
