Elite Eight 2010 Set As NCAA 2010 Bracket Updated

Friday was the second and final round of the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA 2010 Basketball tournament, and there were no huge upsets involved, although there was an upset. Meanwhile, the Cinderella teams that had gone this far saw their carriages turned back into pumpkins as they failed to advance to the Elite Eight 2010.

Northern Iowa (9) failed to reach the Elite Eight 2010, as it lost to Michigan St. (5). However, the Panthers have nothing to be ashamed of; they were the team, you should recall that beat number one overall seed Kansas, throwing brackets around the nation out of sync. The game was fairly close, as well, with Michigan St. winning 59-52.

Meanwhile, another Cinderella teaming hoping for an Elite Eight 2010 slot was pretty much destroyed. The Saint Mary's College Gaels (10) were brutally dispatched by Baylor (3), 72-49.

In the upset of the day, Tennessee (6) beat Ohio St. (2) 76-73. Compared to other upsets in the tournament, this wasn't really that big an upset. At the same time, however, Tennessee's trip to the Elite Eight 2010 is their first trip ever.

Meanwhile, Alex Hermann's family can stop hoping. The autistic teen who reportedly had a perfect bracket is no longer perfect. He had Purdue winning it all, on the strength of the fact that his brother graduated from there, but Duke (1) spanked Purdue (4) 70-57.
