Sports world reacts to Gonzaga being knocked out of March Madness

Arkansas players hugging

Gonzaga entered March Madness as the No. 1 overall team, but they made a very quick exit from the Big Dance.

Gonzaga lost 74-68 to the No. 4-seeded Arkansas Razorbacks in the Sweet 16 on Thursday in San Francisco, Calif. Gonzaga entered the game 28-3 on the season, but there were concerning signs regarding their play throughout the tournament. They were close with Georgia State for about 30 minutes before pulling away. They struggled to get past Memphis in the second round. Then things caught him with them when they lost to the Hogs in the West Region semis.

Many college basketball fans picked Gonzaga to win it all, so the outcome busted a lot of brackets. Take a look at the reaction on Twitter to Arkansas pulling the upset.

Gonzaga had a reputation for years as being great in the regular season and then choking in the NCAA Tournament. They seemed to cast that reputation aside when they made at least the Final Four in four of the last six tournaments. But now they have lost in the Sweet 16 again, and they’ve busted a bunch of brackets in the process.
