The NCAA Tournament's first round was completed late last night. If you went to bed early, we feel sorry for you.

After Thursday night's upset when No. 4 seed Arizona fell to No. 13 Buffalo in a blowout, Friday kept the action going.

Early Friday afternoon, Wichita State, the No. 4 seed, lost to No. 13 seed Marshall.

But that wasn't all. Friday night we witnessed the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history as No. 16 UMBC knocked off No. 1 overall seed Virginia.

After tonight's chaos, who's going to end up making the Final Four? Here are the latest projections from ESPN's FiveThirtyEight.

East Region: No. 1 Villanova

South Region: No. 2 Cincinnati

Midwest Region: No. 1 Kansas

West Region: No. 2 UNC

National title game: No. 1 Villanova over No. 2 Cincinnati
