The only significant upset was Murray State’s humiliation of 5th-seeded Marquette. Elsewhere, although there were some close calls, everything went pretty much as expected.

(Many people think Murray State was underrated in the tourney, and that their star, Ja Morant, could be the best player in the country. Morant had 16 assists in the game, while the entire Marquette team could muster only 6! He also had 11 rebounds, although he’s a 6’3″ point guard.)
