The Oakland University Golden Grizzlies, the #14 seed, delivered a stunning victory Thursday night over the #3 seed Kentucky 80-76 in a major upset in the NCAA men's tournament.

Here's what USA Today had to say:

Oakland got off to a bad start after it missed its first seven shots of the day. But it shook it off with an outstanding 3-point performance, hitting 15 of 31 shots from beyond the arc - including 10 by (Jack) Gohlke - to defeat the team that was the best 3-point shooting squad in the country.

The stunning loss is another disappointing postseason showing for Kentucky, which has a 1-3 record in its last three tournaments with two first-round exits as No. 3 seeds.
