The first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament are in the books and the Sweet 16 is set. 

The biggest surprises of the first weekend of March Madness? Reigning national champion Villanova was ousted by No. 8 Wisconsin on Saturday. That was followed on Sunday as Duke and Louisville — two No. 2 seeds from the ACC — were upset.

Also on Sunday, No. 2 Kentucky avoided a scare and outlasted a feisty Wichita State squad 65-62.

So let’s take a breather for a few days and get ready for some great games on Friday and Saturday.

NOTE:  The national semifinals (Final Four) from Phoenix will be televised Saturday, April 1, on CBS. The national championship will air Monday, April 3, on CBS.
