[NCAA DIVISION I MEN] Eight seeded teams fell in the round of 32 of the NCAA Division I Men's Tournament on Sunday. The biggest upset was Drake's 1-0 overtime win at No. 4 Ohio State. Defending champion Maryland beat No. 7 Penn State, 2-1, and the teams seeded 11-16 all fell. Other former national champs to knock off seeded teams were Indiana, UC Santa Barbara and Duke.

Maryland and Duke were among six ACC teams to advance on Sunday. Only No. 15 seed N.C. State, a 2-1 loser to Portland, didn't win.

The Big Ten and Pac-10 were the only conferences both have two teams left in the tournament.

Sunday's loser was the Big East, which had two teams eliminated in Thursday's first round and its three remaining survivors fall in the second round.

The game of the day took place in Tulsa, where the Golden Hurricane blew 2-0 and 3-1 leads and was tied by Saint Louis with five seconds left in regulation before winning, 4-3, on Ashley McInnes' golden goal seven minutes into overtime.

Freshman Will Bates was the first player to score a hat trick in the 2009 NCAA Tournament with three goals in Virginia's 5-0 win over Bucknell.
