Tagline Sports College Basketball Tournament: Round of 32 – Midwest/West

Upsets were the name of the game on Tuesday in the Midwest Region, with five higher ranked seeds going down, including 2 Kentucky, 4 Wisconsin, and 5 Auburn. But moving on was the top-seeded Kansas, coasting by Siena. The West Region was a lot more formful, with all of the 4 top seeds in that region advancing. But now it is the Round of 32, a round where teams can start to make a name for themselves as they make their way into the Sweet Sixteen! Let’s see what schools will still be around for the second week of action.
