NOTES: "Twenty years ago as a No. 16 seed in Nashville, the Buccaneers had No. 1-seeded Oklahoma on the ropes before losing 72-71 in the Southeast Regional. Two years later as a No. 10 seed, ETSU lost a three-point heartbreaker to Iowa. But in 1992, the 14th-seeded Buccaneers finally finished one off with an 87-80 win over No. 3 seed Arizona, cementing them as upset specialists.There were two other close calls: a three-point loss as a No. 15 seed to Wake Forest in 2003 and a three-point loss as a No. 13 seed to Cincinnati." - ESPN.com

Wow, unknown ETSU has a history of knocking off, or almost knocking off, highly seeded teams. Pitt has a history of losing to unknown, lower seeded team.

Thanks a lot for posting this Don; this is something none of us really needed to hear!
