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.

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.
