March Madness: Only 23 perfect brackets are left after wild upsets from Furman, Princeton on Thursday

We're only halfway through the first round, but there are very few perfect NCAA men's tournament brackets left.

Furman and Princeton took care of that.

Just seven games into the first round of the NCAA tournament, only 0.06% of brackets made through Yahoo Sports were still perfect. By the end of the night, only 23 perfect brackets remained.

The drop-off happened pretty quickly, too. No. 13 Furman stunned No. 4 Virginia, 68-67, on Thursday afternoon in the second game of the day after JP Pegues drilled a 3-pointer from the wing in the final seconds.
