Junior Brian Derrick says, “These upsets really suprised me. It’s cool to see the underdogs win sometimes.”

Teacher Mr Bitner said, “I generally don’t like upsets because the Cinderella teams never seem to win it all. I like to see the best teams playing to win. Out of all the upsets I think NC State was the best. It’s impressive that they could make it to the final four.”
