NCAA Milwaukee Games Offer Upset Potential

College basketball fans are heading to Milwaukee for four first round contests tomorrow (Thursday) in the N-C-A-A men's basketball tournament.

While the games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center do not involve the biggest names, they do provide potential for some big upsets. Twelfth seeded Middle Tennessee State upended Michigan State's hopes for a national title last year in Round One, and observers say they have an even stronger team as they play fifth seeded Minnesota on Thursday afternoon. There's been at least some talk of a possible upset by 13th seeded Vermont against Number four Purdue in the early Thursday night contest -- and in the late game, some believe 12th seed Nevada has a shot at beating Number five Iowa State which made the Sweet 16 last year. The other Milwaukee contest kicks off the day at 12:30, with fourth seeded Butler facing Number 13 Winthrop.
