By  | 

The second day of the NCAA basketball tournament has seen a couple upsets and some wild finishes.

The eleven seeded USC Trojans got a late three from Elijah Stewart to edge the sixth seed SMU Mustangs and complete the upset 66 to 65.

The Seton Hall Pirates looked prime to upset the Arkansas Razorbacks, but a flagrant foul call gave the Razorbacks an extra possession and they avoid the upset 77 to 71.

The Rhode Island Rams got a career day from Jeff Downtin; he put up 23 points to pull away and upset the Creighton Bluejays 84 to 72 en route to their first tournament win since 1998.

In a matchup of prolific offenses, the Michigan Wolverines used some scorching hot three point shooting to keep the Oklahoma State Cowboys at bay and avoid the upset 92 to 91.
