First Upset of 2010 Men’s NCAA Tournament… #11 Old Dominion Stuns #6 Notre Dame

How far will ODU go in the 2010 Tournament after upsetting #6 ranked Notre Dame 51-50

Ladies and gents, we have the first official bracket buster aka underdog upset of the 2010 Men’s NCAA tournament.  In today’s first round opener in the South Regional 11-ranked Old Dominion upset 6-ranked Notre Dame 51-50.

It’s the first time in over 14 years that ODU has advanced past the first round.  In what was a very close game with several lead changes, ODU was able to hold off the Irish even though they had two looks at the basket in the trailing seconds of the game when they were down by one point.

Frank Hassel led ODU with 15 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists.  How far will ODU go? We’ll just have to see as they await the winner of the #3 Baylor vs. #14- Sam Houston.

Well, there goes our bracket.  Hahahaha, just kidding… One of the greatest thing about the NCAA tournament is seeing teams like ODU upset the big dogs.  Here’s hoping we have some more upsets and great games in the tournament, even if it’s at the expense of our bracket.
