For just the second time, a 15th seed is going to the Sweet 16 in NCAA Tournament, as Oral Roberts stunned #7 seed Florida 81-78. The Gators were in control most of the game, building a double-digit lead in the first half. However, the Golden Eagles showed no quit and took the lead late in the second half to join Florida Gulf Coast, who made the regional semifinal in 2013 as a 15 seed. In other upsets, #8 Loyola-Chicago led wire to wire against #1 Illinois, winning  71-58, #12 Oregon State beat #4 Oklahoma State 80-70, as the Pac-12 continued to roll, while #11 Syracuse defeated #3 West Virginia 75-72.
