Just think about how much energy the country would have if it could somehow harness the tears of the thousands of March Madness bracket-makers, especially on a night like tonight. The boys over at Wichita State slipped by the No. 1 seeded Gonzaga, 76-70. This makes them the first No. 1 seed to be eliminated from the tournament.

Gonzaga built up a small lead with 6:30 remaining in regulation, partially because of center Kelly Olynyk's play. However, the Shockers' hot shooting kept them in the game as they hit seven consecutive three-point shots. As a result, Wichita State is advancing to its first Sweet 16 since 2006, Gonzaga is gone, and chances are you or someone you know is toiling in frustration at his/her destroyed bracket.
