After 52 games, the field of 68 teams in the 2013 NCAA Tournament has been narrowed to 16.

In a typically mad stretch of March, the unheralded Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast University earned a spot in this select group while the team atop the AP poll on Selection Sunday did not. Top-seeded Gonzaga was ousted in the third round by No. 9 Wichita State in the wild West Region. In that same section of your very likely busted bracket, No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast ousted both No. 2 Georgetown and No. 7 San Diego State.

The East Region went a bit more predictably, sending its top four seeds into the round of 16. In the Midwest, No. 1 overall seed Louisville overwhelmed its first two opponents, doing nothing to disappoint the many experts who tapped them to cut down the nets in Atlanta.

With three double-digit seeds remaining and three No. 1 seeds, the action picks up on Thursday, March 28 at 7:15 p.m. EST when No. 2 Miami and No. 3 Marquette tip off in Washington, D.C. in the East Region.

Here is a list of the remaining teams by region.

East Region
1. Indiana
2. Miami
3. Marquette
4. Syracuse

South Region
1. Kansas
3. Florida
4. Michigan
15. Florida Gulf Coast University

Midwest Region

2. Duke
3. Michigan State
12. Oregon

West Region
