NCAA Division I Men's Tournament: UCSB pulls lone upset

With one exception, the top eight seeds all advanced to the NCAA Division I Men's Tournament quarterfinals. They include three teams from the ACC that will host this weekend, along with Georgetown.

Dec. 1 in Bloomington, Ind.
No. 5 Indiana
0 UC Santa Barbara 1. (Baynham 102. Att.: 712.)

Unseeded UC Santa Barbara knocked off No. 5 seed Indiana, 1-0, to advance to the final eight for the first time since 2006 when the Gauchos won their only national title. The win was revenge for the loss to Indiana in the 2004 College Cup final in a shootout.

Australian Will Baynham scored the game's only goal in the 102nd minute, pouncing on a backpass intended for Indiana centerback Jordan Kleyn and firing  the ball into the upper corner of the goal.

Next up: UCSB will be without 6-foot-5 center back Hunter Ashworth for its quarterfinal match at Wake Forest on Friday. His caution against IU was his eighth of the season, triggering a one-game suspension.
Dec. 1 in Clemson, S.C.
No. 2 Clemson
2 Providence 1. (Robinson 9, pen. 105; Mendoca 45. Att.: 1,469.)
Robbie Robinson's penalty kick in the 105th minute moved Clemson past Providence, 2-1, and into the quarterfinals for the 15th time in program history. With both goals against the Friars, Robinson leads the nation with 18 goals and nine assists for 45 total points.

Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C.
No. 3 Georgetown 5 Louisville 1. (Montes 2, 82, Beer 26, Rothrock 50, 82; Fonseca 29. Att.: 773.)
No. 3 Georgetown (17-1-3) avenged its only loss of the season with a 5-1 victory over Louisville. Jacob Montes scored two goals and set up two others to lead the Hoyas, who scored five goals for their second-consecutive game.

Dec. 1 in Winston-Salem, N.C.
No. 4 Wake Forest
3 No. 13 Michigan 1. (Holcomb 50, 83, Lapa 70; Broche 77. Att.: 1,206.)

Sophomore Kyle Holcomb scored a pair of goals in the second half to lead Wake Forest to a 3-1 win over Michigan. The victory sends the Demon Deacons to the quarterfinals for the fourth time in five years.

Dec. 1 in Seattle, Wash.
No. 6 Washington
4 No. 11 Marshall 1. (Bodily 8, Bartlow 43, pen. 73, Soto 46; Roberts 24. Att.: 1,530.)
Ethan Bartlow scored a pair of goals and Blake Bodily scored his 12th goal of the season and eighth in his last eight games as Washington beat Marshall, 4-1, to move into the quarterfinals for just the second time.

Dec. 1 in Stanford, Calif.
No. 7 Stanford
2 No. 10 Virginia Tech 1. (Waldeck 54, Hughes 80; Lennon 68. Att.: 664.)
Derek Waldeck scored the first goal in the 54th minute and assisted on Keegan Hughes’ winner in the 80th to lead Stanford past Virginia Tech, 2-1. The Cardinal is among the nation’s final eight teams for the fifth straight season.

    Those attendance numbers sure don't strike me as a country ready for promotion / relegation....

    To be fair, playing on Sunday of Thanksgiving on host campuses is not likely to maximize attendance. Not only is the weather less than ideal, but all of the students are still out on break.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in this one day of data points.

    Wut? Noone is proposing ProRel between D1, D, D3, but perhaps the NCAA has decided to get all libertarian? Do tell! ProRel in college would be an excellent test case to examine the national appetite for risk/reward/player development.
