Well that didn't take long.

We're talking, of course, about the first upset in the NCAA Tournament as Dayton, the No. 11 seed in the South, edged Ohio State, the No. 6 seed, in a thriller, 60-59.

Senior guard Vee Sanford won it for Dayton with a layup with 3.8 seconds left. Ohio State had a chance to respond but Aaron Craft's shot at the buzzer didn't fall.

And then Dayton rang in March Madness with the first great celebration at mid-court. Hopefully Dyshawn Pierre (No. 21) is able to recover from his fall:

Let the Madness begin.
