UPSET: Wisconsin Badgers bounce top seed Villanova 65-62

Josh Hart's reason for returning to Villanova will warm your heart 'Nova Goes Dancing Again

A look at some interesting things in Thursday's opening round the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats (32-3), the overall No. 1 seed, have won some important games with defense, including their 55-53 win over Seton Hall in last week's Big East tournament semifinals, in which they limited the Pirates to 40.7 percent shooting. No champion has repeated since Florida in 2007.

Both No. 1 seeds in action on the day secured wins, with Villanova and Gonzaga both advancing to the second round. "I learned you've just got to work hard".

Mount St. Mary's Junior Robinson is the shortest player in Division I at 5 feet, 5 inches.

"South Carolina, to me, doesn't jump out with a huge fan base", Maillet said. They simply need to him break his latest slump, and a big game might be just the thing he needs.

To me, this is a very scary game for defending champs.

"This is normal for us. I gotta say we gotta forget about it and we gotta get ready for the victor of this game". "We can't worry about what was decided in a committee room".

Wojciechowski said his team could not match the Gamecocks' physicality in the second half. This is what we do. "We're going to have to deal with this'".

"That's the beauty of this game", UW forward Vitto Brown said.

Sometimes it ends with a dogpile on the last Monday night of the college basketball season with the world watching and a One Shining Moment tribute, and most of the time it doesn't, and this time it ended in sorrow in the KeyBank Center. "I actually came up here and went fishing".

"He's much better", Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey said. The Cardinals are a team who I believe many are forgetting about after their early ACC Tournament exit but have the talent to make a Final Four run. "I know it may sound extreme, but I'd rather go out there and give everything I have".

Bonzie Colson of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish reacts after drawing a foul on a basket against the Duke Blue Devils during a championship game on March 11, 2017. Avery Woodson scored 18 for the Bulldogs, who'll be playing Middle Tennessee next. The Wildcats never could find a replacement for the 6-11 Daniel Ochefu, who averaged a team-high 7.5 rebounds on last year's title team. Last year, the Hokies made the NIT tournament. Those who want to call it a "shocking upset" shouldn't; Villanova was favored by just 5.5 in Vegas entering the game. It's on me. That's just part of it, man. This is the lowest they have been seeded since 2009, when they were a No. 12 and upset Florida.

Trust the Vegas experts when it's time to pick your brackets.

"Once you see that run end, you know the look on the guys' faces, the pain that you can hear", he said.

Happ's job down low can certainly be made a little bit easier is Nigel Hayes can continue his production. People see it as David versus Goliath, all that type of stuff. We think we belong here.

"We're not there yet", Martin said after the cheers died down. While picking No. 1 seeds to win it all isn't always the safest bet, it has been since 2010 that top seed failed to make it out of the first weekend of the tournament.

'Nova missed its first eight shots.
