The NCAA tournament moves past the first round and I’ll now take a look at any upsets that may have occurred. I don't really agree that these games are really upsets, yeah when you put a North Carolina up against Lipscomb you make a 20-point line that is the top team against an also ran mid-major. You will notice that the biggest teams, those teams that are favored by 19 points or more, they're all winning. The one exception and probably the biggest upset in some time was Maryland Baltimore County beating top seeded Virginia, 74-54. How historic was this upset? It’s the first time a number 16 seed has upset a number one seed in tournament history!! The great defense of Virginia just couldn’t stop UMBC and their Cavs offense never got on track. This was the upsets of all upsets.

The more minor upsets are happening when you have Wichita State going down or Arizona losing to Buffalo. Let's talk a little bit that one. The PAC-12 has been horrible both in football bowl games and the NCAA tournament in 2017 and 2018. Arizona is the latest team to fall victim to this PAC-12 postseason curse. But was their heart really in that game? Arizona had some much publicized off court issues this year with both players and their coach. Right after their loss to Buffalo, Deandre Ayton and Allonzo Trier both declared their eligibility for the NBA draft. Maybe they had their sights set on the NBA draft rather than the NCAA.

The craziness of March has already begun as the conference tournaments started this week. Already we’ve seen the underdogs show up and have a lot of bite to go along with their bark. Truth be known, there are many teams this year that can be ranked within a very few points of each other. Then you have a few teams, namely the Dukes, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Villanova and perhaps Xavier that could be ranked a little bit higher than the rest. But that difference between the upper echelon teams and the next level is not that great that the top teams can't be beaten by several of the next level teams right below them.

Why is there so much parity this year? My feeling is, that just like the NBA where the teams realize that all that matters is getting to the big dance or the playoffs.  In the NBA, most of the regular season games are not as meaningful as they once were. We see more and more teams resting their stars, especially last in the regular season. In college, kids today are different than they used to be. I'd say there's less of a pride factor among today’s young college players.
