SAN DIEGO – March 25, 2013 – The Regional Semifinals of the NCAA college basketball tournament, known as the “Sweet 16,” are now set.

Three number one teams are still in the hunt: Indiana, Kansas, and Louisville, along with three of the second and three of the third seeds in the regional tournaments. But several upstarts are still in the hunt, led by the improbable Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles, a #15 seed for the first time in the Sweet 16, Florida Gulf Coast University; and #13 LaSalle, which beat #12 Mississippi. The Oregon Ducks are a much better team than their 12th seed position indicates; they knocked off a higher seed easily to make it to the Sweet 16.
