[NCAA DIVISION I MEN] Five former national champions, including 2008 winner Maryland, won first-round matches Thursday in the NCAA Division I Men's Tournament. Connecticut wasn't so lucky, falling at Monmouth in a shootout. Two teams making their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament won on the road.

Connecticut was the only former champion to fall, losing at Monmouth in a shootout after their game ended in a scoreless draw.

Maryland, Indiana, Duke, Saint Louis and UC Santa Barbara all won. Indiana's 2-0 victory over Louisville, revenge for the Hoosiers' 4-0 loss at Louisville last month, was one of only two games to be decided by more than one goal.

Freshman Adam Jahn had a goal and an assist in Stanford's 3-0 winner over debutant St. Mary's.

The only teams to win in their NCAA debuts were Sacramento State and UNC Wilmington.

Sophomore defender Bryan Baker's golden goal gave Sac State a 2-1 win at Loyola Marymount, while UNC Wilmington, the CAA champion, prevailed in a shootout over Charlotte.

The key play for the Seahawks, unbeaten in 14 games, was Daniel Roberts' free kick from 23 yards to tie the game with less than 10 minutes to play.

CONFERENCE WATCH. Wins by Duke, Maryland and Boston College left all seven ACC teams still alive in the NCAA Tournament. All five Big Ten entrants are still alive. Two of the Big East's five entrants, UConn and Louisville, fell.
