Athletes tweet congrats to UAB after first round upset
UAB shocked much of the basketball world when they beat Iowa State in a 14-3 upset on the first day of the NCAA tournament.
Among the fans cheering the Blazers on were athletes who are just as susceptible to March Madness as the rest of us.

Not everyone was happy though, as many a bracket was busted by the upstart blazers taking down the favored Cyclones so early.
Brackets busted already with ISU losing to UAB. No one saw that coming. Teams get tight this time of year.— Jay Williams (@RealJayWilliams) March 19, 2015
Only a few hours into March Madness and everyone is already fully locked into the tourney's emotional roller coaster.
