     According to American Gaming Association, approximately 70 million brackets are filled out each year. It’s hard to believe that each year 70 million people are wrong, but like many people say, not everyone is right.

     Many non-sports fans take a part in the bracket fill out each year and most of them get a better percentage of correct games won than regular diehard sports fans. For example, my mom knows nothing about basketball at all and she picks teams by their color or if their name sounds cool while the rest of my family and I watch every single game we can throughout the entire season and know 99% of the players and their abilities and she still gets more correct picks each year.

     Yesterday was the first round of the 2019 March Madness tournament and out of all the brackets filled out, only 0.26% of perfect brackets remain.

     The scores from yesterday are the following:

                    #10 Minnesota 86: #7 Louisville 76

                    #3 LSU 79:             #14 Yale  74

                    #5 Auburn 78:      #12 NM State 77

                   #4 Florida St 76:    #13 Vermont 69

                   #2 Michigan St 76: #15 Bradley 65

                   #6 Maryland 79:     #11 Belmont 77

                   #4 Kansas 87:          #13 Northeastern 53

                   #12 Murray St 83:  #5 Marquette 64

                  #10 Florida 70:         #7 Nevada 61

                  #2 Kentucky 79:       #15 ACU 44

                  #1 Gonzaga 87:        #16 FDU 49

                   #6 Villanova 61:      #11 Saint Mary’s 57

                   #7 Wofford 84:        #10 Seton Hall 68

                   #2 Michigan 74:      #15 Montana 55

                   #9 Baylor 78:           #8 Syracuse 69

                  #3 Purdue 61:           #14 Old Dominion 48

 

     Out of the 16 games played yesterday, only four were considered upsets with the higher seed beating the lower seeded team. With these upsets, it shows how easy it is for a lower seed to upset a higher seed. I think it’s way more likely to occur in March Madness than a regular season game because it is MARCH. During the regular season, everyone is level-headed with losing to a better seeded team, but in March Madness, each game could be there last, so every team plays all out with their full effort.

     Day 2 continues today with the remaining 16 games to be played to finish out the first round of play. The games that will take place today are:

    #10 Iowa vs #7 Cincinnati

    #9 Oklahoma vs #8 Mississippi

    #3 Texas Tech vs #14 Northern Kentucky

   #4 Kansas St. vs #13 UC Irvine

    #2 Tennessee vs #15 Colgate

   #1 Virginia vs #16 Gardner-Webb

   #6 Buffalo vs #11 Arizona St.

  #5 Wisconsin vs #12 Oregon

   #8 Utah St. vs #9 Washington

   #1 Duke vs #16 ND State

    #3 Houston vs #14 Georgia St.

    #5 MS State. Vs #12 Liberty

    #1 UNC vs #16 Iona

  #8 VCU vs #9 UCF

  #6 Iowa St. vs #11 Ohio St.

   #4 Virginia Tech vs #13 Saint Louis

    Nice article Dixon. Thank you for posting the scores and how everyone is doing. I watched a lot of upsets, and they ruined my bracket. Overall, I think it was a good year for March Madness and there were many gut-wrenching games.
