Both were 11 seeds. Not much of an upset.

In terms of national reputation which one is more well known that is what I personally go by.

That's stupid. Every team that beats Georgetown (which at this point is almost everybody) would be considered an upset based on national reputation. Just because they were the same name on the jerseys that prior, far better versions did, doesn't make them the same. Last night, both St Bonnies and UCLA were out of the top 50 in kenpom, so neither had a lot of national reputation.

Maybe they would've done better with Ball. :coffee: :mrgreen:

No exclamation point though.

Not an upset. Most people I heard on the radio picked the Bonnies.
