Profiles in Madness, Palm Sunday Edition, Volume 2, Chapter 3: Florida Gulf Coast

(15) Florida Gulf Coast now has as many wins in this tournament as they have years in Division 1.  They pulled away from (7) San Diego St. in the 2nd half for what ended up as a blowout win.  They'll now face their in-state neighbor (3) Florida in the Sweet 16.

One more double-digit seed will join (12) Oregon and (15) FCG in the Sweet 16.  It will be the winner of (13) La Salle and (12) Ole Miss, who are currently at halftime with La Salle holding a 2-point lead.  Whoever wins that one, it won't be considered an upset, given the closeness of the seeds.  But it will mean that three double-digit seeds are in the Sweet 16.  None of which, by the way, I picked to be there (nor, I imagine, did many others).
