            During the spring college basketball season, performances have been nothing less than spectacular throughout the entire tournament. With upsets all over the place and millions of brackets already busted, it is fair to say that we are anticipating an even better finish during the rest of the month.

            On the East, two of the biggest upsets in the tournament occurred: seventh seed South Carolina beating the second seed Duke, reaching their first Sweet Sixteen in school history, and the eighth seed Wisconsin beating the first seed and defending national champions, Villanova.

            Duke had been favored in winning the tournament in 2.3 million brackets, via ESPN. Michigan, ranked as a seventh seed team, have been on a hot streak after winning the Big 10 tournament and they knocked off second seed Louisville on Sunday to keep their hot streak going.

            It has been such an eventful couple of weeks and many viewers are on the edge of their seats as they watch their bracket boom or bust. The Sweet Sixteen games fall on Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24. Best of luck to everyone’s bracket, and Happy March Madness!
