Oh, So Sweet

Be honest, you didn't see this coming. Maybe you had No. 1 seeds Kentucky, Duke and Wisconsin all making it to the Sweet 16. But eighth-seeded N.C. State downing top seed Villanova to advance in the East? UCLA, a No. 11 seed with 13 losses, taking out No. 6 SMU ... on a goaltending call? Wichita State beating Kansas for the first time in 28 years? Utah's Coach K heading for a showdown with the Coach K? Who'd a thunk it? For a look at how these teams beat the odds, plus complete Sweet 16 coverage, go to SI.com/college-basketball
