In a couple of hours, I'll watch the North Caroline/Iowa State basketball game in the NCAA tournament. This year, the tournament has been marked by an unusual number of upsets, with lower seeded teams defeating high seeded teams. Perhaps the most stunning was that Mercer U (Macon, GA) defeated Duke, a team many thought could win the championship. Other notable upsets: Dayton defeated Syracuse, Stanford defeated Kansas, and Connecticut defeated Villanova. UNC is a 6th seed, and Iowa State is a 3 seed, so maybe UNC will pull off an upset too! Go Heels!!
