The NCAA tournament never fails to live up to its hype, and the first weekend of the 2013 edition was no exception. After the dust settled, #1 Gonzaga was gone, #2 Georgetown was gone and a #15 seed was in the Sweet 16 for the first time ever. Five of the teams left standing came into the tournament seeded below a 5. Just another day at the office for one of the greatest sporting events on the planet.

We warned you this would happen last week, and now we bring you five more things to watch for in Thursday and Friday's Sweet 16 match-ups.
