I don’t know how Twitter survived the weekend without crashing. Florida Gulf Coast had a weekend-long infomercial on national TV, becoming the first 15-seed in history to make the Sweet 16. Gonzaga set back mid-majors with a tough loss, and brackets all over the world are done, with teams like LaSalle making the round of 16. The Heat are still streaking, winning their 26th straight on Sunday. There was so much going on you couldn’t watch it all, but thanks to Twitter you were able to stay informed.

Has any team lost more heartbreaking games than Iowa State this year? Aaron Craft with an incredible shot with 0.2 sec left.— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) March 24, 2013
Love how things change so quickly.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Aaron Craft...He almost costs them the game would have been the goat...now he's the GOAT!— Greg Anthony (@GregAnthony50) March 24, 2013
While you’re in your early season slump, hopefully, he’ll do the heavy lifting.

This FGCU team is so fun to watch. They play above the rim, shoot it from 3 & push the tempo. If Nephew Matt was playin SDSU would be killin— Bruce Pearl (@coachbrucepearl) March 25, 2013

I knew it was a joke for Gonzaga to get a No. 1 seed over traditional powers like Florida Gulf Coast.— Michael Rosenberg (@Rosenberg_Mike) March 24, 2013
They didn’t play like an underdog.
