No. 14 Ohio Beats No. 3 Georgetown

Anything can happen in the NCAA Tournament. And it usually does. On a day that saw six lower seeds provide upsets, none was so stunning as the one Ohio delivered against third-seeded Georgetown. In convincing fashion, the Mid American Conference champions humbled the Hoyas, 97-83 to become the first No. 14 seeds to win a game since 2006. Even though the Big East is widely considered the toughest conference in college basketball, its teams failed to show their pedigree Thursday as three of the four Big East teams in action fell to weaker sides. (No. 6 Notre Dame losing to No. 11 Old Dominion and No. 6 Marquette slipping up agianst No. 11 Washington were the other two.) Only No. 2 Villanova produced a victory and even then, it took overtime for them to sneak by No. 15 Robert Morris.
