If Saturday was any indication, the 2022 NCAA Tournament is going to be crazy.

Seven of the top 10 teams in the AP Top 25 lost on Saturday, proving to be one of the craziest days in the sport's history. And no, that's not an exaggeration.

Per ESPN, this is the first day in college basketball history that seven top-10 teams lost on the same day.

"Per ESPN broadcast, with No. 1 Gonzaga now going down, this is the first day in college basketball history where seven top-10 teams have lost," tweeted Nathan King. 

It's also the first time in the sport's history that each of the top-six college basketball teams lost on the same day.

"This is the first time every top six team has lost on the same day 💥 No. 1 Gonzaga L 💥 No. 2 Arizona L 💥 No. 3 Auburn L 💥 No. 4 Purdue L 💥 No. 5 Kansas L 💥 No. 6 Kentucky L HISTORIC DAY IN COLLEGE BASKETBALL 🤯," tweeted the official NCAA March Madness account.
