CB360’s Sunday NCAA Regional Central

June 2, 2013

Saturday’s NCAA Regional results produced only four upsets – 4-seed wins by Valparaiso (over Florida), Central Arkansas (vs. Mercer) and Columbia (vs. New Mexico), plus Rice‘s win at Oregon in a 2-vs.-1 matchup – but those wins by lower seeds like the regionals at Louisville and UCLA that have yet to produce an upset (based on seeding within each of the 16 regionals). front-page photo courtesy of Columbia

Looking for a convenient single page with links to each of the 16 Regional Central Pages? CB360 has compiled this page for quick reference to wall-to-wall coverage from all the sites. For starters, here’s a quick grouping of links to all 16 Regional Central sites:

LSU  |  Virginia Tech  |  Indiana  |  UNC  |  Virginia  |  Oregon St  |  South Carolina  |  Oregon
Fullerton  |  UCLA  |  Louisville  |  Kansas St.  |  Vanderbilt  |  NC St.  |  Mississippi St.  |  FSU

There were 10 upsets on Friday (see below), including Connecticut’s win at regional host Virginia Tech, and each of there will be rematches for each of those 10 in Sunday’s early elimination games. In fact, only four of Sunday’s 16 early games at the various sites will not be rematches from Friday: Austin Peay-Valparaiso, Oregon-San Francisco, South Alabama-Central Arkansas, and Arizona State-Columbia. Virginia Tech and Oregon are the only regional hosts facing elimination in Sunday’s early round of elimination games (Oklahoma and Rice have started 2-0 at those sites, respectively).

Each of the 16 regionals are broken down below, with the Regional Central links again included plus quick summary of Friday’s day-1 results.

The 48 teams remaining include: eight each from the ACC & SEC … four each from the Pac-12 & Sun Belt … three each from the Colonial, Big 12 & Big West … two from the Big Ten, Big East, Southland & WCC … and one each from the Ivy League, Horizon, Conference USA, Northeast Conf., Ohio Valley, Southern Conf. and Big South.
