Alabama, Houston losses mean this will be first Elite Eight without a No. 1 seed

This is officially one of the maddest March’s ever.

Not a single No. 1 seed survived beyond the Sweet 16 in this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

And this is the first time ever that’s happened.

San Diego State eliminated the controversial Brandon Miller-led Alabama, along with Miami shocking one of the tournament-favorites in Houston.

In totality, not only does this end the season for the consensus two best teams in the country, but it closes the door on every No. 1 seed left in the tournament.

Fellow No. 1 seed Kansas fell to Arkansas in the Round of 32, and Purdue was memorably stunned by New Jersey-based Fairleigh Dickinson in the Round of 64, only the second time that a No. 16 took down a No. 1.

The Hurricanes are also the only program so far with both men’s and women’s teams in the Elite Eight.

The UConn women will attempt to have their university join the club on Saturday.

This also guarantees that for the first time since 2011, the men’s tournament won’t even have a single No. 1 seed in the Final Four, which will now happen for the fourth time since the NCAA began seeding teams in 1979.
