Tournament Challenge: Stanford upsets KU
By Andrew Feldman
Here are a few notes on the
ESPN Tournament Challenge
Stanford's upset win over Kansas
Stanford was selected in 4.1 percent of Tournament Challenge brackets to advance to the Sweet 16.
36.4 percent of all brackets had this matchup, but only 3.3 percent predicted a Stanford win.
82 percent of brackets predicted Kansas to advance to the Sweet 16, 16.9 percent predicted a Final Four appearance, 5.5 percent penciled the Jayhawks in as national champions.
That 5.5 percent is the most of any team that has been eliminated up to this point. The next two: Duke (5.3 percent) and Syracuse (3.6 percent).
Looking forward to Dayton vs. Stanford in the Sweet 16, only 0.4 percent of all brackets (45,782) contain this matchup, and Stanford is predicted to win in 58 percent of them.
