At least this evens out everyone’s bracket after the Georgetown loss. Top seed Gonzaga lost to Wichita State 76-70 on Saturday in the second round of the NCAA championship, making Gonzaga the first top seed to fall this year. Gonzaga went on a 12-0 run at the beginning of the second half, giving them a 49-40 lead, but the Shockers refused to give in, outscoring Gonzaga 35-21 afterward. The Shockers will face the winner of Sunday’s game between La Salle and University of Mississippi. Meanwhile, Harvard’s fairy-tale story ended Saturday when their team succumbed to No. 6 seed Arizona with a 74-51 loss. Third seed Marquette came from behind Saturday to win 74-72 against sixth-seed Butler in the best game of the tournament so far.
