Morning Madness: Tuesday, March 21

  7-seed Michigan's upset over 2-seed Louisville sent the seventh ACC team packing early. Duke would follow Sunday night.

We’re in the midst of three of the longest days in the college basketball season. The Sweet 16 is set, but we won’t see another NCAA tournament game until Thursday night.

We broke down every team that made it to the Sweet 16

The first weekend of the NCAA tournament may have been without replayable-for-eternity highlights -- no buzzer-beaters, no overtimes yet -- but there are still plenty of storylines. Michigan’s miraculous March, South Carolina’s upset win, the ACC’s disappearing act.

NCAA.com’s Mike Lopresti breaks down the opening weekend and future prospects of each of the 16 teams remaining, from A(rizona) to X(avier).

Here's the weekend's Upset Journal.
