Best and worst of NCAA tournament's 1st weekend



The Zags have been America's underdogs for years, playing in a smaller conference during the season and then besting the big boys when they met in the tournament. But they didn't sneak up on anybody this time. Gonzaga entered the tournament with the No. 1 ranking, and a No. 1 seed in the West Region. Then the Zags flirted with being the first top seed to lose to a No. 16 before beating Southern, then were dispatched by No. 9 Wichita State in the next round.

"We had goals of going deeper in the tournament," guard Kevin Pangos said. "Everyone was just in shock."
