Tournament Challenge: Duke's loss shakes up large percent of brackets

No. 2 Duke's 88-81 loss to No. 7 South Carolina has major implications for the Tournament Challenge:

  • Duke was picked in 87 percent of the brackets to be in the Sweet 16.

  • The Blue Devils were selected to make the Elite Eight in 69 percent of the brackets.

  • Final Four in 39 percent

  • Championship game 25 percent (4,767,146 brackets)

  • Winning the national title 12 percent (2,258,552 brackets)

Only five percent of brackets had South Carolina making the Sweet 16. South Carolina will play Baylor, which was a matchup picked in only 2.1 percent of brackets. Of those brackets, 30 percent have the Gamecocks advancing past the Bears.
