When it comes to a 16 seed beating a 1, it’s
still true — anything really can happen in the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Just not on Thursday night. And not against Gonzaga.
One year after dreamers and underdog lovers rejoiced at top-seeded Virginia’s first-of-its-kind, first-round loss, the Gonzaga Bulldogs crushed any thought of a repeat with a wire-to-wire 87-49 thumping of Fairleigh Dickinson in the West Region.

Mariner’s win in Japan. For a man who never wanted to quit playing baseball, there can be no perfect ending. But Ichiro Suzuki might have come as close as possible to finding the right exit to a brilliant career when he announced Thursday that he’s retiring from the game after playing one last time with the Mariners in a 5-4, 12-inning win vs. the A’s in his home country of Japan.
The 45-year-old gathered himself for a final hurrah in front of a sold-out Tokyo Dome crowd that cheered his every move and then bid farewell to baseball and his Japanese fans in a touching tribute that brought goosebumps to an entire nation and tears to the 45-year-old’s eyes.
Mariners manager Scott Servais sent the legendary right fielder out to his position in the bottom of the eighth inning of the Opening Series finale, then pulled the rest of his defenders off the field to allow Ichiro to come off on his own as he was replaced by rookie Braden Bishop.
Seattle opened the regular season with a 2 game sweep of Oakland in Tokyo. A handful of exhibition games remain this weekend for Seattle, who returns Thursday to regular season games for good against the defending World champion Boston Red Sox.
