Many college hoops fans felt good about their NCAA Tournament picks after a quiet first round produced few upsets.
Overall top seed Villanova's loss to Wisconsin on Saturday busted a ton of brackets.
Over 92 percent of those who participated in Yahoo's online tournament challenge had the Wildcats reaching the Sweet Sixteen _ and 15.9 percent had them winning their second straight national title.
The carnage was eerily similar over on ESPN, where 41 percent of those who participated had Villanova in the Final Four.
Oh, and all those perfect brackets? Most of them took their first blemish thanks to the Wildcats.
There are 18.8 million entries in Tournament Challenge.

Folks who picked North Carolina figure to benefit the most from Villanova's early exit. The Tar Heels were the top pick _ just ahead of the Wildcats _ on both Yahoo! and ESPN.
