Who Would Have Thought

Who knew Western Kentucky, Villanova and Davidson would reach the round of 16 in the men's NCAA tournament?
Only two people from the more than 3.65 million entries in ESPN.com's bracket contest can brag they correctly picked the final 16 teams.

That's a huge drop from last year, when 45 of 3.3 million entries accurately predicted the regional semifinal field. Then again, no seed worse than a No. 7 advanced to the round of 16 in 2007.

This season, there are two No. 12 seeds (Western Kentucky and Villanova) and a No. 10 (Davidson).
The two entrants with the perfect regional semifinal fields - going by usernames loboD113 and jbuckeyes329 - were not infallible in picking the first round. One got six games wrong, the other seven. But they had the correct team advancing to the round of 16 in each case.
Both chose UCLA to win it all.
