2017 Bracketology: No. 5 Seeds
- East: Texas A&M Aggies
- West: Miami Hurricanes
- South: Iowa State Cyclones
- Midwest: Purdue Boilermakers
Vince Edwards will enter the NBA draft but won't hire an agent as he follows in the footsteps of Purdue teammate Caleb Swanigan.
How will Purdue look in 2016-17?
The Boilermakers need more shooting, and replacing Rapheal Davis (and likely Caleb Swanigan) won't be easy. But their frontcourt still looks scary. Way-Too-Early Top 25
Caleb Swanigan has declared for the NBA draft but will not hire an agent, meaning he still could return to Purdue.

Purdue freshman Caleb Swanigan is declaring for the NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent.
A.J. Hammons and Rapheal Davis will depart West Lafayette, but Purdue should again field a strong team in 2016-17.
Sparty's loss busted 8.1 million brackets
In the 2016 ESPN Tournament Challenge, 8.1 million entries picked Michigan State to advance to the Final Four.
Purdue knocked out early again
The Boilermakers will again have to wait another year to reach the second weekend after falling to Arkansas-Little Rock. In each of the last four NCAA tournaments, Purdue has gone packing in the first weekend.
There were some upsets on the first day of the NCAA tournament, but Wichita State and Kentucky gave the rest of the field something to think about.
No. 12 seeds own upset city
If you're among those scratching their heads over the Yale or Arkansas-Little Rock wins, this may come as a shock. At least one 12-seed has won a game in 28 of the 32 tournaments since the field expanded in 1985. And since 2010, 12-seeds are now 12-14 against 5-seeds despite losing all four games last year.
Hagins joins an elite group
Arkansas-Little Rock's Josh Hagins became just the the third player to have a 30-point game against Purdue in the tourney. Recognize the previous two names? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then known as Lew Alcindor) and Isiah Thomas -- both Hall of Famers.
The Trojans erased a 13-point deficit in the final minutes of regulation to force OT and joined Yale as the second 12-seed to knock off a 5-seed.
Little Rock is moving on in the NCAA tournament, thanks to an out-of-nowhere comeback that led to an 85-83 double-overtime victory over Purdue on Thursday.

Details of the various key plays aside, come overtime, Purdue never looked like it thought it was going to win. Arkansas Little Rock never looked like it thought it could lose. That felt like the biggest difference, fuzzy as it is.

Little Rock's Chris Beard ran up to Jeff Goodman on press row after the win and yelled, "Don't ever doubt the little guy!"
