March Madness: Creighton, NMSU & Teddy Allen Pull Off Upsets


Trey Alexander hit the game winning runner in the middle of the lane with just over a minute left in overtime and 9th seeded Creighton upset #8 San Diego State 71-69 in the first round of the menโ€™s NCAA Tournament on Thursday. The Bluejay win came at a price as center Ryan Kalkbrener left in overtime with an injured knee and wonโ€™t be available on Saturday.

Teddy Allen went off for 37 points and 12th seeded New Mexico State upset 5th seeded UConn 70-63.

13th seeded South Dakota State trailed Providence 60-57 with 29-seconds remaining, but the Friars closed the game on a 6-0 run for a 66-57 win.

Colorado State built a 14 point first half lead but the 6th seeded Rams faltered down the stretch 75-63 to #11 Michigan.
