Round of 32
Overview: The midwest was the most ‘predictable’ region in the round of 64, with only one upset in Syracuse out dueling TCU as an 11 seed. Round 2 will serve differently. Kansas will be the second top seed to be knocked off by an overlooked Seton Hall team. Duke will sneak past Rhode Island, Clemson defeats Auburn, and Michigan State will advance but only before being tested by Syracuse.
