The Spartans of Norfolk State folked up your bracket!!! 15 takes out a 2 in the West region

The Norfolk State Spartans shocked everyone as they upset the Mizzou Tigers by a score of 86-84. Now, I didn't know too much about the Spartans before this game, but I did know that Mizzou would be in a lot of trouble if they were matched up against a team with a dominant big man, and they were. Kyle O'Quinn dominated the paint for the Spartans as he went 10-16 with 26 points and 14 rebounds. However, the Spartans defeated Mizzou by shooting 10-19 beyond the arc, a better percentage than Mizzou. Mizzou is an undersized team since the average height of their players is 6' 6", but they played a good game. It's just that Norfolk State had an inside game and an outside game, giving them the win and making them only the fifth 15 seed to knock off a 2 seed.
