Besides Florida advancing last night, to now face FGCU who upset 13 seed UCF, most everything else went as expected yesterday. 15 seed Oregon advanced, and will take on a good Baylor team who finished with an RPI rank of 17. Baylor has a decent chance of pulling off the upset there tonight.

#6 seed Wisconsin advanced, and will take on Pepperdine, who beat UNI in an upset, UNI finished with an RPI rank of 16 while the Waves were 35. Wisconsin should advance easily here.

And #5 seed Texas advanced, will now take on Texas State who finished with an RPI of 22. Texas should advance but Texas State could take a set off them and give them a tough match if they are on.

My upset specials in the regional finals if teams advance today as expected:

Tennessee over #16 seed Washington State
Washington over #9 seed Creighton
Michigan over #12 seed Pitt
Cinci over #14 seed Marquette
Baylor over #15 seed Oregon
Purdue over #10 seed Kentucky

The Creighton and Kentucky upsets are probably the least likely. The other 4 have decent chances I think.

Mizzou has a tough match against Arizona today at 4:30 CST, the winner to surely face #7 seed Nebraska tomorrow. Despite fading badly at the end of the season, this young Mizzou team could cap off a very good season with a win over Arizona today, regardless of what happens against a far superior Nebraska team.
