The NCAA Tournament kicked off earlier this week with a few First Four contests. Official action tipped off on Thursday afternoon when Minnesota and Louisville took the floor.

The Gophers pulled the first upset of the day, taking down the Cardinals by a final score of 86-76. Another high seed has an upset on its mind as well.

No. 3 seed LSU took the floor on Thursday afternoon against No. 14 seed Yale. The Bulldogs faced a significant deficit in the first half before cutting the Tigers lead to just five with two minutes left in the contest.

Late in the first half, an LSU player suffered a scary collision when he went over press row.

Unfortunately, a member of the press row was holding a soda without the lid.

He'll be wearing a wet shirt for the rest of the game.

Luckily the player wasn't injured in the fall over the table.

Meanwhile, as the for action on the floor, Yale isn't going away quietly. With just over a minute to play in the game, Yale trails by just six points.

Can the Bulldogs pull off the second upset of the day?

Stay tuned for the latest updates from the NCAA tournament.
