Dick Vitale Is Shocked

One of the final games of Day 1 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament gave us one of the most-shocking results in years.

Arizona, the South Region's No. 4 seed and one of the most-popular national title picks, lost to No. 13 seed Buffalo. It came via a blowout.

The Wildcats were embarrassed in nearly every facet of the game. The Bulls went on to win by more than 20 points.

Buffalo moves on to face No. 5 seed Kentucky in Round 2. Arizona goes home in embarrassing fashion.

Dick Vitale is among those who are shocked.

The ESPN analyst took to Twitter to react to Arizona's loss, which means the Pac-12 will send zero teams to the Round of 32.


It's been a brutal end to the year for the Pac-12. The conference is the first major conference to not send a team to the second round in 20-plus years.

Better luck next year, guys.
