Sadly, at least for Michigan State fans, the Spartans have been knocked out of the NCAA tournament by Louisville. Michigan State is the first No. 1 seed to fall in the tournament, but both Kentucky and North Carolina could take the plunge this evening if all doesn't go according to plan. Three double-digit seeds will be looking to end some tournament dreams early and keep the clock from striking midnight on their own personal Cinderella stories, but will we see any more upsets in the second half of the Sweet 16?


(1) Kentucky vs. (4) Indiana

Kentucky has run roughshod over its first two opponents, while Indiana barely survived a scare against VCU.
