NCAA Tournament: Shockers in Tampa


Just call Tampa Upset City. ¶ Virtually all the drama and surprises in this year's NCAA Tournament have been in the games here. In fact, it's the first time since the NCAA began seeding teams in 1979 that more than two major first-round upsets have occurred in the same city. We went 4-for-4. ¶ Want buzzer-beaters? Try Ty Rogers' 27-foot 3-pointer in overtime to lift West Region 12th seed Western Kentucky to a 101-99 victory over No. 5 Drake. ¶ Not enough? ¶ How about De'Jon Jackson's 18-footer with 1.2 seconds left in overtime to help the West's No. 13 San Diego eliminate No. 4 Connecticut 70-69? ¶ Dominating performances? Okay, how about the Midwest's No. 13 Siena over No. 4 Vanderbilt 83-62? ¶ A super comeback? How about Midwest No. 12 Villanova rallying from 18 down to oust No. 5 Clemson 75-69? Stories, 11-12C
