March Madness: How far UNC can advance, what to do about bad officiating and what we'll be watching Sunday

The first No. 1 seed has been crossed out from your March Madness bracket. The first earth-shaking moment of the 2022 NCAA tournament's Round of 32 came early Saturday, when the Baylor Bears fell to the North Carolina Tar Heels despite an epic rally (inspired by a controversial officiating decision that saw UNC's Brady Manek sent off with a flagrant foul) to force overtime. The 93-86 loss cemented the East as this event's most wide-open region, with the Tar Heels, No. 4 seed UCLA and the upstart No. 15-seed Saint Peter's Peacocks all getting primed for the festivities in Philadelphia next weekend along with a team to be determined.
