Upsets

Wow, I am absolutely amazed by both Norfolk St.’s upset over Missouri and Lehigh’s upsets over Duke.  Coming in, I thought Lehigh was 60% as good as Duke, and that Norfolk St. was 24% as good as Missouri!  According to my rankings, Norfolk St. was the worst team not in the WKU-Miss Valley game, and Lehigh was eleventh-worst in the tourney.  I had Mizzou ranked fourth and Duke ranked fifteenth.  What I have to say is that, approximately 29% of the time, the weaker team wins in the NCAA tournament according to the Wages of Wins Journal and Ty Wilihinganz at Courtside Analyst.  Yesterday, there were very few upsets.  Therefore, I am not entirely surprised with the quantiy of upsets, but I am totally flabbergasted by which ones did occur.  My full rankings are available at NCAAEvals3.
